A human right group has cautioned the general public to desist from displaying the face of the teenagers who killed a 10 year old in Kasoa for Money Ritual.

The group known as Child Rights International has asked the media to refrain from exposing the faces of the two teenagers who allegedly murdered an 10 year-old boy identified as Ishmael Mensah, for rituals at Kasoa last weekend.

The Human right organization is of the view that, showing the faces of the two suspects in the media was unethical and flouts their right to protection as guaranteed by sections of the Juvenile Justice Act.

“We understand the public is upset, judging how the two teenagers planned and carried out the act”, Child Rights International said.

That “notwithstanding, we should try and protect their identity, bearing in mind that any public exposure of the teenagers could also put them in danger”, Child Rights International indicated in a statement.

The organisation also condemned the act and expressed its condolences to the bereaved family.
