An Accra High Court has issued an order for substituted service against Ghana Journalist Association (GJA) President Albert Kwabena Dwumfour and 3 others.

This was after efforts to serve them the writ of summons in an interlocutory injunction case brought against him by a member of the GJA, Justice Adoboe.

The court giving its order indicated the defendants including the former president of the GJA, Roland Affail Monney are to be served by substituted service, the writ of summons, the statement of claim and the motion on notice for interlocutory injunction.

These are to be posted at the press Centre and the notice board of the High Court general jurisdiction.

The GJA a month ago ignored a court process stopping the newly-elected President from being sworn in.

Albert Dwumfuor was however, sworn in at a ceremony at the Accra International Conference Center.

This has resulted in the High Court serving an order of substitution. Mr. Dwumfuor and the GJA cannot by the service deny notice of the writ as they claimed earlier.
