Defence Ministry Cannot🙅‍♂ Be a👉 Defendant - 🔊Supreme Court

  |   Ghana News

The Supreme Court has struck out as a defendant the Ministry of Defense in a suit against the government over the US military base agreement.

The seven-member panel presided over by Justice Sophia Adinyira directed the Attorney-General represented by Mr Godfrey Dame, the Deputy Attorney General to re-file its defence to reflect that it represented both the Attorney General and Ministry of Defense.

The court gave plaintiffs and defendants 14 days to file their memorandum of issues and adjourned the case sine die.

The plaintiff, Mr Yaw Brogya Genfi, who is the Ashanti Regional Youth Organiser of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in March 2018, filed a suit against the government over a defence cooperation agreement with the United States of America.

He is praying the Court to “set aside” the agreement on the grounds that it is unconstitutional and against the national interest.
