Versatile and talented Regina Van-Helvert last Friday 24th August 2018 unveiled her much-awaited project christened ‘Stop Jungle Justice Campaign’.
The campaigns core mandate is aimed at fighting against the lynching of humans.
The unveiling saw ACP David Eklu, Late Major Maxwell Mahama’s father among other dignitaries who graced the event.
Host on Rhythm Live aired on GhOne Tv Regina Van-Helvert said it has been her dream to aid fight against this lynching of humans who can be reported to authorities to be dealt with.
According to her “Jungle Justice or mob justice as some may know it, has been in existence for as long as I can remember, growing up in Osu (Accra). It was commonplace to hear ‘ooo julor’, ‘ewi oo ewi’, to wit thieves and you could almost certainly tell, that someone guilty or otherwise, will lose their life through bizarre circumstances”.
She continued that, Van-Helvert Foundation, has decided to tell the full narrative of Jungle style justice, or mob-justice, in a bid to awaken the sensitivities of the Ghanaian society which appears to have died along with our trust for institutions to effectively support our resolution of disputes.
Miss Van-Helvert outlined what her campaign intends to achieve by next year.
“..Next year, we will use movie vans, community engagements, townhall meetings, engagements with key security and law enforcement institutions, and gatherings such as these to rebuild the broken trust in our society. This is definitely not a one person, one institution struggle. It is one that requires all and sundry” she said.
For their part, ACP David Eklu and late Major Maxwell Mahama’s congratulate Regina’s effort for creating the awareness to fight against mob justice that has lost many lives.
Late Major Maxwell Mahama’s father added that its high time the authority come together to chide this mob justice that has lost many lives… the death of my son is still a fresh wound till now and I will support this campaign.
