Ghana: Appeals Court Dismisses Sosu’s Motion Against Ban

July 27, 2017

The Court of Appeal has dismissed an application for a stay of execution pending appeal by suspended human rights lawyer, Mr  Francis Xavier Sosu, over his suspension from legal practice by the General Legal Council (GLC).

The General Legal Council is body set out by law to regulate legal education and legal practice throughout the country

Mr Sosu filed the application seeking to put on hold his three-year suspension from the legal practice pending the final determination of his appeal at the courts.

In his ruling the court presided over by Justice Henry Anthony Kwofi said that it was unable to grant the application because it lacks the jurisdiction to do so.

He said the court was of the view that Mr Sosu should have filed the notice of appeal at the GLC registry and not the registry of the Appeals Court.
