Police Drags Arise Ghana Movement to Court

2 Min Read

The police service says it has instituted a court action ostensibly to stop the planned demonstration by the arise Ghana movement slated for Monday and Tuesday.

A statement signed by the director of police public affairs directorate, chief superintendent grace Ansah-Akrofi, Sunday afternoon, noted that they resorted to court after talks with the pressure group to get them to drop the night picketing broke down.

The demonstration is to be held on the first day Monday, June 27 between 3 pm and 10 pm and resume the next day.

The police say in order to adequately ensure the safety of demonstrators and other members of the public, they urged that the demonstration should not travel into the night.

However, the group declined their suggestion for them to alter the time set for the demonstration.

The police say due to the lack of agreement and choice of location for their planned picketing, they have no option but to submit the process to the court for a determination.

The statement said the court action was duly communicated to arise Ghana movement in a letter on June 22, with the hearing set for Monday, June 27.

The police wish to assure the organizers and the public of their readiness to provide security for the demonstration once the matters are determined by the court.

The full statement attached.
