The Ghana Police Service has cautioned the general public over calls to join the #FixTheCountry protest.
The Supreme Court on Tuesday, June 8, dismissed a High Court order to restrain the organisers of #FixTheCountry demonstration from hitting the streets of Accra to exercise their right.
But a news release signed by the Head of the Public Affairs Unit of the Command, DSP Effia Tenge, advised the public to disregard any call by the conveners to demonstrate.
The police noted that the Supreme Court’s ruling only quashed an earlier order granted ex parte by the High Court, which prevented the conveners from embarking on a public demonstration.
“However, the Supreme Court refused to restrain the Ghana Police Service or their agents, assigns, workmen or workwomen from unlawfully interfering with the constitutional right of the conveners of the ‘Fix-the-Country’ protest from embarking on a public demonstration”. The release said
It noted that the substantive case between the police and the conveners on their right to demonstrate is before an Accra High Court and will next be heard on Monday, June 14.
