Gagnoa. " College La Bonne Semence" : Teacher is accused of rape, but father of pupil ends up in jail.
Accused in 2018 of raping his 15 years old daughter , Mr DGYG has been remanded in custody.
Facts about a mindboggling case
Indeed, following a complaint by Mr. DGYG, that his daughter DG, a 5th grade student was raped by Mr. S, a Teacher at the College "La Bonne Semence Tago", the suspect is arrested by the 1st district police squad. After investigations, the noose of justice ends up tightening the neck of the plaintiff's father. Although the teacher admits being in an intimate relation with the pupil, it should be noted that little D.G, according to our sources, was carrying a 3-month pregnancy.
Under pressure from investigators, she ends up pointing to her father as the one with whom she had regular sexual intercourse.
The Public Prosecutor Touré Moussa, head of the public prosecutor's office at the Gagnoa Lower Court, is given the opportunity to take legal action against the incestuous father.
After a brief detention at the Gagnoa Central prison, Mr. DGYG, was asked to answer to the acts of rape, violence and assault committed on his 15-year-old daughter, a minor.
After the accused observed that he had never been heard in the case, the Prosecutor states: We are going to close the deliberations and then open the debate," before questioning: "You have been served with the facts for which you are accused. What are we talking about?'" Yes! It is rape," the defendant replied. "The facts have been re-characterized. You have been remanded here for the facts of : Violent indecent assault on a 15-year-old girl. With this particular circumstance that you are the father. You are also accused of the acts of violence and assault on the person of DGS, a 15-year-old minor. Do you recognize these two facts? "No! I do not recognize them": said the accused.
'This case has been referred several times for the appearance of witnesses', the President will indicate before asking. How well do you know DG? "Yes, she's my daughter."
Father DGY: "My older brother decided to send me to France. I told him to send my daughter, instead of me. To do so, he asked me to establish a birth certificate in his name and to enrol her in a college. I enrolled her in the " College La Bonne Semence", in the 7th grade. But she had to be allocated a registration number. In order to request a new registration number from the teacher, Mr. S, my daughter went to his office. After some exchanges, the teacher took the child behind a cupboard in his office to rape her". This is what my daughter, once at home, told me the same day at 6 p.m., "it was the next day that I went to the gendarmerie, from where a gendarme advised me to go and meet the director of studies and the accused. I was going to drop everything with an amicable settlement, but we did not agree. It was after this disagreement that I decided to go to the police where I filed a complaint against the teacher.
Prosecutor: "He did this to your daughter. She complained to you at 6pm. Living in Garahio, you waited until afterwards to go to the police to complain when your arrangements didn't work out... It was after this disagreement that you decided to go to the police . What type of relationship Do you you have with your daughter? Is she closer to you or does she prefer to confide in your wife? the judge will ask.
DGY: "I'm a man. She could not explain it to me".
Prosecutor: "When she said she was raped, why did she come to you? Why not to your wife? She comes to tell you something as serious as that, practically accusing her teacher. What's the point of her changing her story right away and saying it's not someone from the outside who's sleeping with me, it's my father? How long have you been living with your wife?
DGY:"I've been with her for a year now".
Prosecutor: "I'm going to read your wife's statement. Not to the police, but to the investigating judge's office".
