The Judicial Service of Ghana has granted media outlets full access to court proceedings concerning the controversial anti-LGBTQ+ Bill.

In a communiqué issued on Tuesday, May 28, the Judicial Service confirmed that radio and television media can cover all relevant court proceedings related to the Human Sexual Rights and Family Values Bill 2024.

This decision comes in response to widespread public interest and nationwide debate over the controversial legislation.

The Judicial Service aims to ensure transparency and keep the public informed about the legal process as it unfolds.

“Permission has been granted for the media (including Radio and Television) to have full access to the relevant courts to undertake a coverage of all proceedings in those cases concerning the Bill,” the letter said.

Currently, there are four separate lawsuits challenging the Bill.

Amanda Odoi and Richard Dela Sky have filed cases directly at the Supreme Court, questioning the bill’s passage.

Additionally, Paul Boama-Sefa and Prince Obiri-Korang have brought separate challenges to the High Court.

President Nana Akufo-Addo has withheld his signature on the bill until these cases are resolved.

The media coverage is expected tp provide the public with detailed insights into the legal challenges and deliberations surrounding the controversial Bill.
