Arise Ghana Demonstration Unlikely To Come Off As Ghana Police Service Releases A Statement

Arise Ghana demonstration which was scheduled to come off on the 28th of June 2022, is has met a huge setback as Ghana Police Service has release a statement that the matter is taken to court.

A release by the Ghana Police Service on Sunday, 26th June reads;

"A group calling itself Arise Ghana, notified the Police of its intention to hold a demonstration in Accra for two continuous days and for its members to also picket in front of the Jubilee House during the night."

According to the Police, they invited the organisers to a meeting to discuss the demonstration. Following a series of meetings, Arise Ghana informed the Police in a letter dated June 8, 2022, that instead of two continuous days, the demonstration will start on the first day at 3 pm and end at 10 pm and resume the next day.

The Police, in a letter dated June 13, 2022, responded and urged that in order to adequately ensure the safety of demonstrators and other members of the public, the demonstration should not travel into the night.

"Therefore, in the interest of public order and safety, we entreated the organisers to reconsider their time frame and start the demonstration early in the day and end before night falls.

On June 22, 2022, the Police received a verbal response from the organisers to the effect that they are unable to change the time of the demonstration." The statement said.

The statement continued that Due to the lack of agreement between the Police and the organisers on the time for the demonstration and location for their planned picketing, the Police have had no option but to submit the process to the court for a determination. This was duly communicated to Arise Ghana in a letter on June 22, 2022.

"The case has since been filed at the court and the hearing is scheduled for tomorrow Monday, June 27, 2022."

Ghana Police Service has assured the organisers in particular and the public in general of our readiness to provide security for the demonstration once the matters are determined by the court.
