High Court Obstructs June 4 Demo
The Accra High Court “4” has given an Order to restrain the organisers of the June 4 Demo from going ahead with the three-day demonstration.
This was after the Ghana Police Service filed a motion with the High Court on June 1, 2022, to prohibit the organisers from undertaking their intended “armed demonstration”.
The organisers of the demonstration were reportedly represented in court by Benjamin Darko.
“After hearing of the application, the court granted an Order to restrain the Organisers, agents, assigns and whoever is claiming through them from embarking on the armed demonstration as had been intended”, the Ghana Police Service said in a statement.
The police indicated that it will not hinder individuals and groups from undertaking legal demonstrations.
Organisers of the obstructed protest notified the police service that they would rather contract private security personnel and arm them to protect protesters on June 4, 2022, the day slated for the beginning of the three-day demonstration.
This, the police said, was inconsistent with the Public Order Act.
