Supreme Court Suspends Sitting Over COVID-19 Fears After One Senior Judge Died Under ‘Strange Circumstances’
The Supreme Court has acted swiftly to allay the fears of Justices and officials at the Apex court as all cases scheduled to be heard this week have been adjourned over COVID-19 concerns.
The move comes in the wake of rumours that some judges of the Superior Courts have tested for the virus and are currently in mandatory Isolation.
The apex court was expected to deal with nine cases between Tuesday and Thursday but all the case have been adjourned.
In a related development, a Justice of the Court of Appeal, Justice Paul Gyaesayor, has died after complaining of ill-health Tuesday.
The experienced Judge who reported for work, according to sources at the Judicial Service, complained of ill-health and went home.
But, he died shortly after he left the office to the house.
