Referee Bremansu’s attacker for court

THE Prisons Officer who beat up Referee Theresa Bremansu is to face trial in Sunyani.

According to reports, the Attorney General’s Department has given the all-clear to the Sunyani Divisional Crime Unit to start the process against Sergeant Barfour Awuah.

Barfour Awuah led a group to attack Bremanusu after the final whistle of the Prisons Ladies-Ampem Darkoa semi-final clash in the Special Competition played at the Army Park in Sunyani. Ampem Darkoa won 1-0.

But the hooligans claimed the FIFA referee handed their team a raw deal and took revenge.

Awuah is, however, reported to have signed a bond to be of good behaviour though that does not free him from facing prosecution.

In her first interview after the incident, the referee likened the attack on her to that of an armed robber.

“I was attacked by a prison officer who was wearing a black top in the full glare of the public. I cried for help but nobody came to my rescue. I called for his arrest and nobody moved a finger. They all saw this man beating me up,” Bremansu narrated her ordeal.

“I was beaten like an armed robber,” she added.
