Supreme Court Ruling Blocked Gov’t From Collateralizing E-levy – Minority



The Minority in Parliament says they are happy with the ruling by the Supreme Court which blocked  government from collateralizing proceeds from Electronic Transfer Levy (E-levy) until the substantive case is heard.

According to the Minority, they took up the matter because it is of public interest and the constitutionality that need to be pursued.

“But what is refreshing and heartwarming today is the second part of the ruling which gives directives to the Ghana Revenue Authority to preserve and keep the money. At least some people will not be in a hurry to collateralize the money until the matter is determined.

“For us, we raised this matter because it is of public interest significance, it’s of constitutional significance and we think that we’ll pursue it to its logical conclusion, so we’re very happy with the performance of our lawyers,” the Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu told journalists after the ruling by the Apex Court.
