Following the remission of the sentence of the Montie three by president John Mahama on Monday, the family of Dr. Sulley Ali-Gabass have also initiated an online petition seeking a presidential pardon.

An Accra circuit sentenced the medical doctor to 25 years imprisonment for defiling a child under 16 years in 2015.

The petition said imprisonment of Dr Gabass "thus far, has served the purpose of not only correcting him, but will also deter others from committing a similar offense."

It said Gabass' past contribution to society, particularly by serving diligently as a medical doctor who performed countless bloodless surgeries at the Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital, Sekondi, significantly helped in reducing the maternal mortality ratio within the western region of Ghana.

"We believe his skills as a medical practitioner could even be employed to the benefit of the various facilities at the Ghana Prisons Service which has for years been plagued with a dearth of medical practitioners."

The petition implored on president Maham to invoke Article 72 of the Constitution as he did in the case of the Montie three to remit the sentence of 25 years imposed on him.

"We do pray on the President to grant this petition some consideration for the sake of the remorseful doctor and for the benefit of the good people of Ghana," the petition concluded.
