The Ghana Police and MP for Madina, Francis-Xavier Sosu, have locked horns in a legal battle that could drag on for months.
Following an injunction filed by the MP, police have also filed an injunction against the MP’s injunction.
Chief State Attorney, Clarence Kuwornu, who represented the Inspector-General of Police, Dr George Akuffo Dampare, in court on Monday has filed a preliminary injunction to the injunction filed by the MP.
Meanwhile, the high court in Accra has adjourned the case in which Francis-Xavier Sosu is praying the court to halt police from infringing on his rights to December 20, 2021.
The MP wants the Human Rights Court 1 to enforce his human rights, order for the enforcement of his right to free movement, protest, demonstration, and personal liberty among others under Article 14(1), 21(1), and 33 of the 1992 constitution.
He further asked for a stay of all criminal investigations and proceedings by the Ghana Police Service and the Inspector General of Police against him.
This follows several attempts by the Ghana Police Service to arrest him for some excesses in a demonstration he led in his constituency against deplorable roads.
A bench warrant issued for his arrest was later withdrawn by the Kaneshie District Court.
