The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is expected to initiate a process to waive the diplomatic immunity of a Rev Father who is being accused of neglecting his responsibility towards a child he allegedly fathered.

The waiver will enable the court serve the Rev farther with a writ file by a 24 year old Ghanaian lady.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs will apply to the Apostolic Nuncio for the waiver.

Rev Fr Yves-Lucien Evaga Njana, the Director of the Biblical Centre for Africa and Madagascar (BICAM) at the Airport Residential area in Accra cannot face trial in court due to his diplomatic privileges.

The plaintiff, Josephine Ganyoame, 24-year-old woman, filed the suit in court accusing Rev Fr Njana, a Cameroonian and diplomat based in Ghana, of neglecting responsibility towards a six month-old child he allegedly fathered.

 In the suit filed on April 7,2016  the plaintiff is seeking a declaration that the respondent’s irresponsibility breaches the rights of the child to a name, basic necessities of life, welfare and social protection.

She is further praying the court to direct the Reverend Father to subject himself to a paternity test in order to establish he is the biological father of the child, among other reliefs.

The case has been adjourned to the 10th of May to allow the recommended processes to be carried out.
