The Supreme Court, chaired by Chief Justice Getrude Torkonoo, is hearing a case on the Human Sexual Rights and Family Values bill, known as the anti-gay bill.

Counsel for the applicant, Dr. Ernest Ackon, argued that the bill, if approved, imposes a direct charge on public funds, violating Article 108. He also pointed out the lack of a fiscal impact analysis before the bill was sent to the President.

The Attorney-General Godfred Yeboah Dame, the second respondent, argued that the Speaker’s discretion is not unconstrained by the constitution hence warranting the apex court’s decision on the injunction application

Plaintiff Dr. Amanda Odoi seeks an injunction to stop the Speaker from transmitting the bill to the President. Another case involving lawyer Richard Dela Sky is yet to be heard.
