4 Persons charged for violating COVID-19 protocols at Christ Embassy's 'Pneumatical Night'

Four persons have been charged for breaching COVID-19 protocols on public gatherings and organizing Christ Embassy's 'Pneumatica Night' last Friday at the Fantasy Dome facility, Trade Fair Centre.

The event saw over 10,000 people in attendance who were not wearing noise masks and there was no social distancing as attendees sat or stood close to one another during the service.

Three of the persons charged are members of the Christ Embassy Church and the fourth person works at the Trade Fair Centre, Graphic Online reports.

The four persons were reportedly charged with failure to comply with restrictions imposed contrary to Regulation 4 of the Imposition of Restrictions (coronavirus disease (Covid-19) pandemic) (No. 16) instrument, 2020 Executive Instrument (E.I.) 395 and Section 6 of the imposition of the restriction Act, 2020 (Act 1012).

This was after the police invited leaders of the church and management of Trade Fair Centre for questioning over the organization of the event which sparked uproar on social media.

Meanwhile, the police have temporarily closed down the Fantasy Dome facility for further investigations.

Earlier, the Ghana Medical Association (GMA) had urged the police and the Attorney General to prosecute organizers of the event for breaching COVID-19 protocols.

The GMA viewed the event as a “super spreader” of COVID-19 as some countries across the world are experiencing a second wave.
