Organisers of the #OccupyBoGdemo will heave a sigh of relief to proceed with their pending protest on Tuesday, October 3, 2023.
This is because an Accra High Court has held as ineffective, the processes of service on the respondents by the Ghana Police.
Principal State Attorney, George Tetteh Sackey told the court on Friday, September 29, 2023, that he had served the processes on all the respondents.
But the court, presided over by Justice Edward Twum, observed that there was only proof of service for three out of the four respondents and hence was incomplete.
The Police were seeking an order from the court to get organisers of the protest to clarify the routes for the demonstration.
“Before I can give you a hearing there must be evidence of service to all parties. As it stands now only Ato Forson was not served,” Justice Twum noted.
The case has been adjourned to Wednesday, October 11, 2023.
Lead by Minority Members in Parliament and other groups, the #OccupyBoG demo seeks to call for the resignation of the Bank of Ghana governor, Dr Ernest Addison and his deputies over a GHC60 billion loss by the bank.
This was contained in the 2022 Annual Report of the bank which also indicated that the bank is running a negative equity of GHC55.1 billion.
The Minority has also cited the construction of a new head office by the bank at a cost of US$250 million as part of its reasons for demanding the sacking of the BoG boss and his deputies.
It has said the actions of the BoG managers will collapse the bank if care is not taken.
