To ensure peace and order, a High Court in Ghana has restrained organizers of a proposed armed demonstration in the West African country.
The court also restrained the organizer’s agents from carrying out the demonstration.
A statement issued by the Head, Public Affairs Unit, Accra Regional Public Affairs, Ghana Police Service, Superintendent Juliana Obeng, and made available to Security Watch Africa (SWA), reads “On June 1, 2022, the Police filed a Motion on Notice at the High Court to restrain or prohibit the organisers of their intended armed demonstration.
“The organisers, represented by Benjamin Darko, were duly served with the Motion on Notice which application was heard today, June 3, 2022, at the Criminal High Court “4.”
“After hearing of the application, the Court granted an Order to restrain the Organisers, their agents, assigns and whoever is claiming through them from embarking on the armed demonstration as had been intended.
“We would like to assure the public that the Police Service will not be an impediment in the way of any individuals or groups in the exercise of their right to demonstrate, as long as it is within the limits of the laws of the country.
“We will continue to enforce the law and ensure the safety and security of all persons in the country,” it stated.
