Police withdraw injunction against #DumsorMustStop demo

The Ghana Police Service has withdrawn its injunction application seeking to halt the Yvonne Nelson-led demonstration against erratic power supply, known locally as ‘dumsor.’

This decision comes after the organizers of the protest submitted a revised plan to the police, changing the date and location of the vigil.

Originally scheduled for May 25, 2024, the demonstration will now take place on June 8, 2024, at 2:00pm at the University of Ghana. The change was confirmed in a new letter sent by the organizers to the Accra Regional Police Command, addressing the initial concerns raised by the officers.

The Police had initially filed for an injunction at the High Court to prevent the demonstration, citing security and logistical concerns. They had also suggested that the organizers consider an alternative venue. The revised plan appears to have mitigated these concerns, leading to the withdrawal of the legal action.

The Police, in accordance with the dictates of the Public Order Act, have filed an instant application to halt the demonstration.

The withdrawal of the injunction application case, which was heard on May 24, 2024, means organizers of the protest can go ahead with the demonstration barring any intervention from the Police.
