An Accra High Court has dismissed an application filed by the Attorney General (AG) against Indian businessman, Ashok Kumar Sivaram.

The presiding judge, Justice Naa Adoley Azu, dismissed the Attorney General’s argument that the non-granting of the stay application will amount to interference of the work of the Ghana Immigration Service.

This was after his counsel, Gary Nimako, accused the Ghana Immigration Service of dragging their feet in complying with an earlier order.

The AG was seeking a stay of execution of an earlier judgment by the court which last week ordered the immigration service to restore the work and residence permit of Mr Sivaram within seven days, after months of failing to do so.

Ashok Kumar Sivaram was deported on the orders of the Interior Minister, Ambrose Dery on June 1, 2017, after he determined on his own that the businessman had engaged in fraud.

Lawyers for the businessman proceeded to court to challenge the deportation and won a judgment on August 1. The court said the Minister exceeded his jurisdiction when he accused and deported the businessman.
