LGBTQ+Bill: Supreme Court grants Richard Sky request to file fresh motion

The Supreme Court has ordered lawyers of Richard Sky, the Plaintiff in one of the two cases challenging the passage of LQBTG+Bill to file fresh motion by May 17.

The panel of five chaired by Chief Justice Gertrude Sackey Torkornoo has also directed them to file fresh supporting affidavits and statement of case.

The order of the apex Court was after lawyers of the Plaintiff led by Paa Kwesi Abaidoo filed two separate applications seeking leave to amend one of their reliefs and another to file a supplementary affidavit to their application for interlocutory injunction.

While the Attorney General Godfred Yeboah Dame opposed to the request for leave to file a supplementary affidavit, lawyers of the Speaker of Parliament led by Thaddeus Sory urged that a fresh motion paper rather be filed to clean the processes.

The Plaintiff and his lawyers have up to May 17, 2024 to file, while the matter has been adjourned indefinitely.
