An Accra High Court has struck out the application for injunction filed by the Ghana Police Service, against the #OccupyJulorbiHouse protestors. This comes after the application was withdrawn by the Ghana Police Service in court on Tuesday, September 26.
According to the police, the injunction was filed and served on the lawyers of Democracy Hub, Atuguba & Associates, on September 19.
But the denial of service by the Democracy Hub, the organizers, resulted in a back-and-forth with the police.
The police viewed everyone gathered at the 37 Lorry Station, the converging point of the three-day protest, as defying their orders and warned them accordingly on the first day.
They were, however, released the same day, Thursday, September 21, only to return on Friday and Saturday to complete the demonstration.
Presiding Judge Edward Twum struck out the application after it was withdrawn by the police, noting, however, that although court processes had been served on the solicitors of the respondent, no proof of service was provided to Benjamin Akuffo Darko, the respondent in the case.
Justice Twum hence indicated that since there was no order from the court and the protest had already taken place, the only other option was for the application to be withdrawn since it had been rendered moot.
