A Koforidua based Private Legal Practitioner, Lawyer Isaac Mintah Larbi has called on all Lawyers and well-meaning Ghanaians to stand up in defense of democracy and rule of law which he says have come under serious attack.
He said President Akufo-Addo has ruined democracy and rule of law which continue to worsen by day warning of dire consequences if not checked.
The protest organized by “Democracy Hub” under hashtag #OccupyJulorbiHouse was against mismanagement of the economy and rising corruption.
Considering the ensued disagreement, the Police on 19th September, 2023 filed an application to prohibit the Organisers from holding the planned demonstration at the Jubilee House from 21st September, 2023.
The application which is slated for determination on 26th September, 2023, was successfully served on the lawyers of the Organisers ie: Atuguba & Associate.
Police contended that the Jubilee House which is the seat of government where the protestors intended to march to is a Security Zone therefore a different route must be taken.
