The #OccupyJulorBiHouse organizers, Democracy Hub, claimed that the Ghana Police Service had not been served with an application for an injunction. The Ghana Police Service has denied these assertions.
The organizers were properly served with the court procedure, according to the Service, through their attorneys.
“We wish to state categorically that the organizers of Democracy Hub were duly served with the application on Tuesday, September 19th, 2023, through their lawyers (Atuguba & Associates), and for that matter, the organizers are duly aware of the pendency of the application before the High Court slated for determination on Tuesday, September 26th, 2023,” the Police said in a new statement.
When they originally informed them of their upcoming demonstration, the organizers referred to these attorneys as their legal representatives, the police said.
Therefore, it has been recommended in the statement, which is signed by Superintendent Juliana Obeng, Head of Public Affairs Unit, Accra Region, that people refrain from taking part in a “illegal” rally.
The organization has stated that the demonstration would go as scheduled despite the injunction.
From September 21 to September 23, 2023, there will be picketing to provide people a chance to voice their opposition to the projected military involvement in Niger as well as any other government policy choices or actions.
The organization claims that choosing Nkrumah Memorial Day is essential to getting through their message because it honors “the spirit of resilience and resistance that led the struggle against oppression and dispossession.”
