Missing Ghanaian artist, Castro, and Janet Bandu, can only be declared dead, per Ghana’s laws, after seven years and seven days.
The two went missing early July while surfing the waves at Ada in the Greater Accra Region, Ghana.
Ada District Police Commander, Chief Superintendent Dodzi Hlordzi told StarrFMonline.com in an interview on Monday that as far as the Police and the Law are concerned, Castro, born as Theophilus Tagoe, and Bandu cannot be declared dead or said to have died until after seven years have passed.
This means Castro and Janet can only be declared dead or deemed to have died in July 2021. Until then, the law still recognises them as being alive.
According to Chief Supt Hlordzi, the families of Castro and Janet can only organise funerals for the two missing persons until after seven years and seven days.
Their estate, if any, can also be inherited, only after that period.
Frantic searches by Marine Police have not yielded any results.
