Mandatory vaccination: Five Reliefs Sammy Gyamfi Is Seeking From Supreme Court As He Files Motion

Tuesday, 21st December 2021

The National Communications Officer of the National Democratic Congress on Monday sued the Attorney General (AG) and the Ghana Heath Service (GHS) over the mandatory vaccination exercise. This followed an earlier threat by the private legal practitioner to use the court to stop the implementation of the mandatory covid-19 vaccination at the airport.

Mr. Sammy Gyamfi is seeking eight reliefs from the apex court. We publish the first five reliefs below for your perusal.

a. “A declaration that the impugned directives of the Respondents breach or threaten to breach the Applicants’ fundamental human rights as enshrined under Article 21(1)(g) of the 1992 Constitution of Ghana.

b. “A declaration that the impugned directives of the Respondents violated Section 2(1) of the Imposition of Restrictions Act, 2020 (ACT 1012) and Sections 21, 22 and 30 of the Public Health Act, 2012 (ACT 851) and therefore illegal.

c. “A declaration that the impugned directives of the Respondents contravene the guidelines of the Food and Drugs Authority, Ghana on the administration of Emergency Use Authorized medical products and same are unreasonable.

d. “A declaration that the impugned directives of the Respondents contravene the guidelines of the World Health Organization regarding proof of COVID-19 vaccination for international travelers, and that same is unreasonable.

e. “A declaration that the impugned directives of the Respondents contravene medical ethics and best practices that govern COVID-19 vaccine administration.”

Sammy has said he is not personally against vaccination. His position has being that those who want to receive the vaccine should be allowed to receive while those who would not want to receive the vaccine, allow them to refuse it.
