The application for interlocutory injunction by the JCR President of Commonwealth Hall, Kofi Adutwum, has been granted by a member of the Judicial Board.
An interlocutory injunction is a court order to compel or prevent a party from doing certain acts pending the final determination of the case. It is an order made at an interim stage during the trial, and is usually issued to maintain the status quo until judgment can be made.
“Having listened to Counsel for the Plaintiff applicant for an order of interlocutory injunction as set out in his accompanying affidavit and statement of case, it is hereby ordered that the Chief Justice of Commonwealth Hall, his assigns, privies or agents, are hereby restrained from conducting any Special JCR Meeting or whatsoever set out in the petition dated the 22nd day of October, 2015 for the removal of the plaintiffs Kwasi Adutwum and Akwasi Hammond Tanoh until the substantive matter is heard”, Justice Offei stated.
The substantive matter has been adjourned to Monday, the 26th day of October 2015.
The impeachement sought to remove JCR President Kofi Adutwum and Electoral Commissioner, Hammond Tannoh from Office.
