Some members of the Ghana Music Right Organisation (GHAMRO), have filed a writ at the high court seeking to place an injunction on GHAMRO’s elections.
GHAMRO is set to hold elections for board members in accordance with its constitution on Tuesday, December 7 in some selected ten regional capitals in the country.
The writ was filed at the high court on November 29, 2021.
The plaintiffs, Nana Boahene (Stebo), Rev. Mensah Bonsu, Kingsley Sarpong and Gloria Dzifa Ashinyo are claiming that the guidelines for the conduct of the elections introduced were against GHAMRO constitution.
They have therefore filed an application for an injunction to restrain GHAMRO from organising the said elections until a final determination of the suit.
The defendants are GHAMRO as 1st defendant, Abraham Nuetey Adjatey (2nd defendant) Augustina Addision (3rd), Aziz Haruna (4th), Kwabena Donkor (5th), Eric Afriyie (6th) and Seth Amponsah (7th).
In the plaintiffs statement of claim sighted by BEATWAVES, they are seeking (a) a declaration that the defendants have contravened articles 4.21, 4.8(4),6.6 (1), 6.7, 6.8 and 6.9 of the constitution of GHAMRO, (b) a declaration that the appointment of the interim board and the subsequent appointment of the 3rd,4th,5th, 6th and 7th defendants were in contravention of the GHAMRO constitution, (c) an order setting aside the appointment of the interim board and the appointment of the 3rd to 6th defendants as members of the election committee for being in contravention of the constitution of GHAMRO.
It is also seeking a direction against the defendants to re-instate the plaintiffs as duly elected members of the election committee to continue the performance of their functions as election committee of GHAMRO.
Again “an order directed at the 2nd defendant to properly account for his stewardship and role as chief executive officer of GHAMRO, (f) interlocutory injunction restraining the defendants from conducting elections scheduled for December 7, 2021 as being in contravention of the GHAMRO constitution and (g) perpetual injunction restraining the defendants from interfering the with the performance of the functions of the plaintiffs as appointed members of the election committee.”
