Management of deceased dancehall artiste, Ebony has revealed that Bechem Hospital and the mortuary men will be sued after the burial of Ebony.
Late Ebony manager known in showbiz circles as Bullet made this known in an interview with Sammy Flex on the programme Showbiz Agenda on Accra-based Zylofon FM.
According to him, the video, which was circulating via social media was really uncalled for and Ghanaians should desist from sharing it with others.
“It is very bad. We need to give respect to the dead. We’ll surely take up the matter after her funeral and make sure whoever took those videos is punished,” he said.
The video shows the lifeless bodies of Ebony and her friend Franky Kuri at the mortuary. In the video, the mortuary attendant who seemed to be working on the dead bodies was heard telling the one taking the video not to circulate it.
Since the video went viral, a lot of people have spoken strongly against it, asking that whoever was involved in taking the video be brought to book.
President and founder of Legal Advocacy Foundation Maurice Ampaw averred that the family or management can sue the Bechem Hospital and the mortuary men.
When quizzed by host Sammy Flex in legal understanding if one can sue on behalf of the dead he said: “Yes definitely you can sue on behalf of the dead body because the dead body is the property of the family if the body has been abused the family can sue them [mortuary men]”.
Born Priscilla Opoku-Kwarteng, Ebony died in a fatal accident on 8th February 2018 with her friends Franky Kuri and Vondee Atsu on the Sunyani-Kumasi road when returning from Sunyani.
The final funeral rites of late Ebony is slated for 17th March, 2018 with the venue yet to be communicated.
