The Minister for Justice and Attorney General, Godfred Dame has told the National Democratic Congress (NDC) lawmakers who filed the injunction application against the e-levy at the Supreme Court that applicants do not go to court based on speculations and conjecture.
In his view, available records in Parliament showed that the House had the required number of members present in approving the e-levy.
“You do not go to court with speculations and conjecture, you go to court on firm evidence….The applicants were unable to demonstrate any form of irregularity,” he told journalists in Accra after the Supreme Court dismissed the application against the e-levy.
The apex court after dismissing the application on Wednesday May 4 also directed the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) to keep all records of deductions following the implementation of the electronic transaction levy.
In a unanimous ruling Presiding Judge Nene Amegatcher reading the judgment noted that the nature of the relief sought by the minority is null and void.
