The Human Rights Division of the High Court has ordered the Attorney General (AG) and the lawyers for one of the Rastafarian students, Tyron Marhguy, to file their legal submissions on the Achimota School admission saga.
The court, presided over by Lady Gifty Addo, gave the parties up to Wednesday, April 28, 2021, to file their legal arguments to enable the court to sit on Friday, April 30, 2021.
In an affidavit deposed to by Deputy Director of Achimota School in charge of Admissions, Paul Abankwah, the school is urging the court not to grant any of the reliefs being sought by Tyron Marhguy.
Filed at the court registry on Thursday, April 22, the school argues in its 46-paragraph affidavit that Tyron Marhguy has not yet complied with the admission protocols of the school, which is the actual reason he has not been admitted yet.
Mr. Abankwah further said in his affidavit that Tyron Marhguy has, to date, neither completed nor returned to the administration of Achimota school, the Acceptance of Admission Form.
He thus insists, as per paragraph 46 of his affidavit that, should Marhguy decide to complete the admission process and obey all school rules for the duration of his education at the Achimota School, the entire matter will be put to rest.
