Court gives greenlight for #OccupyBoG demo

Minority leader

The #OccupyBoG protest organisers have received permission to proceed with their demonstration on Tuesday, October 3. 

This decision comes after an Accra High Court ruled that the processes of service by the Ghana Police Service were ineffective in notifying the respondents.

Principal State Attorney George Tetteh Sackey informed the court that he had served the process on all the respondents.

However, Justice Edward Twum, presiding over the case, noted that there was only proof of service for three out of the four respondents, making the service incomplete.

The police had sought an order from the court to require the protest organisers to clarify the routes for their demonstration.

However, the judge emphasised the need for evidence of service to all parties before granting a hearing. 

As it stands, only Minority leader, Ato Forson was not served.

The case has been adjourned to Wednesday, October 11, allowing the #OccupyBoG protest to proceed as planned on October 3.

The protest, led by Minority MPs and other groups, aims to force for the Governor of the Bank of Ghana Governor, Dr. Ernest Addison, and his deputies to resign over a GH¢60.8 billion loss incurred by the bank.
