Supreme Court Adjourns Case Against Anti-LGBTQI Bill Indefinitely

The Supreme Court has indefinitely adjourned the case against the anti-LGBTQI bill, citing intemperate language in the documents presented by the Speaker of Parliament. The court directed the Speaker’s lawyers to file new documents.

During the hearing, the court dismissed a preliminary objection by the Speaker of Parliament’s lawyer, Thaddeus Sory, regarding the amendment of a relief in the motion for injunction filed by broadcast journalist Richard Sky, who is challenging the bill.

Lawyers for Richard Sky sought to amend one of the reliefs, but Sory objected, stating that he had already indicated his objection in earlier filed documents. However, the court ruled that every party has the right to present their reliefs appropriately, dismissing Sory’s objection.

Chief Justice Gertrude Torkoornoo, chairing the justices, remarked to the Speaker’s lawyers, “You have taken our time and energy for nothing.”

Ghanaian Journalist Richard Dela Sky and Researcher Dr. Amanda Odoi were scheduled to appear before the Supreme Court on Wednesday, May 8, 2024, to move their lawsuits challenging the passage of the anti-LGBTQ+ Bill.
