An Accra High Court has adjourned the case questioning the approval of the Human Sexual Rights and Family Values Bill, popularly known as the anti-LGBTQ+ bill to July 29, 2024.

Lawyers for the petitioner, Paul Boama-Sefa, were asked to file their written submissions in four weeks, likewise awaiting a response from the Speaker of Parliament who is the defendant in the suit.

The Judiciary Service on Monday permitted live media coverage of cases related to the anti-LGBT+ bill.

Prior to this, the Chief Justice had allowed media houses to livestream the hearing of Richard Sky’s injunction application on the passage of the anti-LGBTQ+ bill at the Supreme Court.

But the Judicial Service has now opened the doors to all cases related to the anti-LGBTQ+ bill.

So far, four cases have been filed at various levels of the court system bordering on the anti-LGBTQ+ bill. Two are to be heard at the High Court and the other two at the Supreme Court.
