High Court adjourns #FixTheCountry case to June 21 over late filling of documents

An Accra High Court on Monday, June 14, 2021 adjourned the case between the Ghana Police Service and the organisers of the 'fix the country' planned demonstration.

FixTheCountry case adjourned over late filing of documents

The court presided over by Justice Ruby Aryeetey adjourned the case to June 21, 2021 over the late filing of documents.

Meanwhile, last week, the 'Fix The Country' campaigners secured a Supreme Court ruling which reversed the earlier indefinite restraining order by the High Court preventing them from protesting.

The Supreme Court Panel presided over by Justice Yaw Appau ordered that indefinitely bar by the High Court preventing the the Fix The Country campaigners from staging a street protest was erroneous.

However, the Ghana Police is still in court challenging the decision of the group to stage a demonstration in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Police, therefore, urged the public to desist from following the conveners to protest since the substantive case is still in court.

But in an interview with the media, a convener of the group, Felicity Nelson said the intimidatory actions of the police is rather energizing the base of the group to build momentum and to ensure that Ghana is fixed.

She said: “Funny enough I think this continuous resistance by the police, the antagonistic relationship they seem to have with us is actually helping and building momentum because now more people are thinking that actually, this is getting ridiculous. One protest that people want to go, why are you not allowing them to go on their protest…?"
