COURT THROWS OUT APPLICATION IN AFIA POKUA’S APPEAL CASE.
The High Court (Human Rights Division) has this morning struck out an application to halt execution of its judgment given in favour of Afia Pokua and two of her colleagues whose human rights were abused by National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) officers in September 2014.
Court of appeal judge, Justice A.M. Domakyaareh, sitting as an additional High Court Judge held on the 23rd of June 2016 (almost a year after the case was filed) that the rights of the journalists were abused and ordered a written apology to be published in a national dailies within 14 days and to pay GH¢ 7,500.00 to the journalists.
But Lawyers for the NHIA and its officers, Tony Lithur, filed an appeal at the Court of Appeal and proceeded to the Human Rights Court to stay execution of the judgment pending the outcome of the appeal.
The judge this morning said they failed to show up in court to argue their case and did not also give any reasons for their absence in court, and therefore struck out the application awarding cost of GH¢ 500.00 against them.
Lawyer for Afia and co, Samson Lardy Anyenini says it is likely they will refile the application, and that he is ready for whatever they intend doing even though he is certain they are simply delaying issuing the apology and paying the money since they lost the case.
