Supreme Court Dismisses Minority Injunction Application Against E-levy

The Supreme Court has thrown out the injunction application filed against the e-levy.

The apex court also directed the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) to keep all records of deductions following the implementation of the electronic transaction levy.

In a unanimous ruling, Presiding Judge Nene Amegatcher reading the judgment noted that the nature of the relief sought by the minority is null and void.

Three Members of Parliament; Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu; Mahama Ayariga(Bawku Central) and Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa(North Tongu) are seeking the Supreme Court to restrain the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) from implementing the E-Levy until the final determination of an earlier substantive suit challenging the constitutionality of the bill by Parliament.

Lead counsel for minority, Godwin Edudzi Tamaklo argued that greater parties will suffer, adding he 5u4 e-levy did not seek the interest of the public.
