The Ghana Police Service has secured a court order to halt an intended protest by the Alliance for Social Equity and Accountability (ASEPA) over government’s controversial ‘Agyapa’ deal.
The court says it granted the ex-parte motion after examining the affidavit presented by the Ghana Police Service and the response submitted by the counsel of the plaintiff.
“It is hereby ordered that, the respondents herein namely ASEPA and Mensah Thompson or any other group of persons affiliated to the respondents are prohibited and restrained from demonstrating against an agreement passed by the Parliament of Ghana popularly known as Agyapa agreement which demonstration is intended for 21st September 2020”, the restraining order according to Citi Fm reads.
ASEPA had earlier communicated to the police about its intention to demonstrate over the Agyapa deal. However, a response from the Police indicated the demonstration cannot be sanctioned because there is a tendency to flout the Covid-19 protocols.
