Adding to the letter, the IHRO of UN implored Counselor George Lutterodt to immediately render an unqualified apology for his unsavory comments and also called for the said video to be taken down from all media platforms.
It would be recalled that Counselor Lutterodt, while speaking in an interview on Adom TV, indicated that rape victims enjoy the act at a point.
His comment attracted massive backlash from the general public which included notable people including Nana Aba Anamoah, Leila Djansi, Gifty Anti, Efia Odo and Rasheeda Adams.
Counselor Lutterodt, however in an interview with Peace FM yesterday indicated that his comments had been misunderstood and apologized if he hurt anyone with the said comments
