Minority in Parliament is expected to appear in court on Tuesday, September 19, 2023 to officially notify the court of the latest development of its planned demonstration against the Governor of Bank of Ghana and his deputies.
Police filed a motion for an injunction against the minority’s #OccupyBoG demonstration indicating that the group needs to change its route due to safety reasons.
The Minority on September 4 notified the Police with a fresh notice and insisted on the same route.
The Court presided over by Justice Edward Twum on September 8, 2023, ordered the Police (Applicant) to amend errors on the face of the motion paper after the Minority through their lawyers led by Godwin Edudzie Tamekloe, the Director of Legal Affairs of the National Democratic Congress raised preliminary legal objection.
Organizers of the protest after realizing their initial date for the protest elapsed due to the injunction, notified the police to go ahead with the protest on September 12 and insisted on the same route which was yet still in court.
In Court on Monday, September 18, 2023, the police noted that even though the minority has rescheduled their protest and changed their route, they need to officially notify the court.
The Minority caucus in Parliament on September 11 postponed its planned protest to occupy the premises of the Bank of Ghana.
The protest is to demand the resignation of the governor Dr. Ernest Addison and his deputies over what the minority describes as mismanagement of public funds by the central bank.
After postponing the protest on two occasions, the minority has settled on October 3, 2023 to have its protest.
