You can’t stage demo at night – Court to Arise Ghana

The Criminal Division of the Accra High Court has partially granted an application from the Ghana Police Service to restrain and prohibit Arise Ghana from embarking on a demonstration which sought to end at 10pm.

The police per the motion sought the court’s intervention not to allow the intended demonstration to enter into the night.

DSP Sylvester Asare made references to reports of terrorism in neighbouring country Togo and to argue their case and wanted the demonstration to end at 3pm.

Counsel for the Respondent (Arise Ghana) led by Godwin Edudzie Tamakloe argued that, the police has not demonstrated how the Togo terrorism which took place in the afternoon comes to play in a demonstration which was to be held in Ghana in the night.

The bone of contention between the Police and Arise Ghana which landed in court was the venue for the demonstration and the time it would be ending.

The court presided over by Justice Comfort Tasiame while partially granting the application said, the demonstrators should converge at Obra Spot through Farrisco Avenue to TUC and end at the Independent Square.

The court also said, the intended demonstration should start from 8am and end at 4pm.

The said petition the court said should be received by representative of the President if any.
