Court throws out police injunction against #OccupyJulorbiHouse protesters

Source The Ghana Report

An Accra High Court has thrown out an injunction filed by the Ghana Police Service against Democracy Hub, organisers of the #OccupyJulorbiHouse protest.

The presiding judge Edward Twum before taking a decision on the injunction noted that although the court processes were served on the solicitors of the respondent, there was, however, no proof of service to Benjamin Akuffo Darko, the respondent in the matter.

Justice Twum added that since there was no order from the court and the protest had already taken place, the only other option was for the application to be withdrawn since it had been rendered moot.

The Police in a statement dated September 20 stated that the injunction had been filed and served to the organizers of the #OccupyJulorbiHouse protest, therefore the public should disregard any calls from individuals or groups encouraging them to assemble for a demonstration at the Jubilee House.

Conveners of the demonstration however denied the police report of being served with a court process, prohibiting the demonstration.

Democracy Hub went forth to organize the demonstration on September 21 leading to the arrest of 49 protesters on the first day.

According to the police, the protesters were arrested due to unlawful assembly and violation of the Public Order Act.
