Oliver declares hunger strike as Police fail to process his bail granted by the court
FixTheCountry convener Oliver Barker-Vormawor has once again declared a hunger strike till the Police release him.
The Movement has alleged that the Police has refused him bail after the Tema High Court granted bail t6o the tune of Ghc2 million.
The lawyer who had for weeks fought for his bail says he wants to be on hunger strike for as long as the Police refuse to comply with bail.
Mr. Barker-Vormawor was granted bail by the Tema High Court in the sum of GHC2M with two sureties.
The court presided over by Justice Daniel Mensah said one of the sureties should deposit documents of landed property within the jurisdiction.
But the Movement has alleged that the Police has refused to process his bail.
“We have just been informed by the Police that they have no intention of releasing our Convener, Oliver Barker-Vormawor today. They say that they are awaiting further instructions from the Inspector-General of Police.
“According to the Commander, there is a likelihood that they will re-arrest and charge Oliver on a different offence,” the #Fixthecountry Movement wrote on Facebook.
“We deplore the intentional abuse of power and the growing disregard for the rule of law in this country. The growing practice of blatant disregard by the Police for the authority of the Courts undermines our democracy and makes a mockery of commitment to abide by the Constitution,” they added.
