The organizers of the #OccupyBoG protest have been given approval to go ahead with their protest on Tuesday, October 3.
This judgement follows a ruling by the Accra High Court that the Ghana Police Service’s notification procedures to the respondents were ineffective.
George Tetteh Sackey, the principal state prosecutor, had informed the court that he had served the documents to each respondent. Justice Edward Twum, who was presiding over the case, pointed out that only three of the four respondents had proof of service, making the service ineffective.
The police had asked the court to issue an order mandating that the protest organizers specify the routes for their demonstration. Before allowing a hearing, the judge emphasized the requirement for proof of service on all parties.
Only Ato Forson remains unserved as things stand.
The case has been postponed until October 11 so that the #OccupyBoG demonstration can happen as scheduled on October 3.
The protest, organized by Minority MPs and other groups, aims to demand the resignation of Dr. Ernest Addison, Governor of the Bank of Ghana, and his appointees in response to the bank’s GH60.8 billion loss.
