Some 15 of the #fixthecountry movement members, including Efia Odo, who messed up at the entrance of the Law Court Complex, have been arrested.

The reason behind the arrest was not yet known to youths4success.

The protesters were at the High Court to support lawyers of the group in a suit that has been brought against them.

EIB Network’s Court reports that before the arrest, the protesters were seen taking pictures with Efia Odo, one of the conveners.

According to some of the conveners, a police officer on duty at the Court instructed the suspects to leave the premises and later called for backup.
The Director of Operations at the Accra Regional Police Command led the team to initiate the arrest.

Meanwhile, the Criminal Division of the Accra High Court presided over by Justice Ruby Aryeetey has dismissed preliminary objections that challenged the Attorney General’s capacity in the matter.
The police have applied to the Court to restrain the #FixtheCountry protest from their intended protest.

Lawyers of the conveners (Respondents) on Monday, June 21, raised three preliminary objections, including one that challenges the capacity of the Attorney General to be in the matter.

The courting in its ruling said the AG is the principal legal head of the state, and the matter before the Court is being brought in the Republic’s name.

EIB Network’s Court Correspondent Murtala Inusah reports that following the dismissal of the objections, the Court is now proceeding to hear the substantive matter.

Before the Objections were raised, Attorney General Godfred Yeboah Dame said, the application before the Court sought an order directed at the organizer and conveners of an intended demonstration dubbed #FixtheCountry protest match.

The AG said it is to restrain the Associate officers, agents, assigns, and workmen on the grounds of public safety, public security, and public health till the restrictions imposed on large public gatherings are lifted by law or by the law.
But, the lawyers of the respondents raised objections to the application before the Court.

Opposing to the application, Mr. Dame contended that the application’s Objection violates Article 491 is a “totally absurd proposition.”
The application he said is appropriately before the Court, and the Objection is wholly misconceived.
He prayed the Court to overrule it.
