Court Adjourns Dafeamkepor’s Case on Anti-LGBTQI Bill to April 29

An Accra High Court has postponed the case involving a judicial review of the anti-LGBTQ Bill’s presentation for presidential assent.

This delay allows lawyers representing MP Rockson-Nelson Dafeamekpor of South Dayi constituency to respond to the Attorney General’s (AG) documents opposing the application.

During the court session on Thursday, April 18, attorneys representing the AG informed the court of their need for more time to address additional documents submitted by the South Dayi MP’s legal team.

Lead counsel for the MP, Nii Kpakpo Samoa Addo, requested additional time to address the concerns raised by the AG in their opposing documents. Consequently, Justice Ellen Mireku, presiding over the case, adjourned it to April 29.
