Ghana Election Petition: All Set for Judgment

Courts within the Supreme Court building and the Fast Track High Court area will not sit tomorrow, August 29, 2013, the day set aside for the delivery of judgement in the presidential election petition.

According to the management of the Judicial Service, the decision formed part of security measures instituted to ensure that security on the court premises and inside the courtroom was not compromised in any way.

A statement signed by Mr Justice Poku-Acheampong and issued on August 22, 2013, urged non-accredited members of the public to monitor the judgement from their radio and television sets.

Per the statement, only four groups of persons had been accredited to enter the court premises on judgement day — the parties in the case, lawyers, journalists and representatives of the security agencies.
