The Accra High Court has placed an injunction on the intended demonstration by Coalition of Aggrieved Customers of Menzgold to commemorate exactly two years when the Securities and Exchange Commission, (SEC) ordered for the shutdown of the gold-trading company.
The filed order from the Inspector General of Police, Mr. James Oppong-Boanuah was seeking the prevent the customers from going with the demonstration.
in the order of public gathering, the court said “It is hereby ordered that the respondents, the Coalition of Aggrieved Customers of Menzgold Ghana, Isaac Nyarko and Fred Forson are hereby restrained from the intended demonstration to commemorate two years of collapse of Menzgold Company.”
As part of the protest which was suppose to happen today, Saturday 12 September, 2020, the Coalition of Aggrieved Customers were to hold a wreath-laying ceremony in memory of over 64 customers who lost their lives because of the shutting down of the company.
The SEC issued a series of warning to the public not to trade with gold-trading company in 2018 but unfortunately some members of the public did not heed to the warning and later the company was shutdown.
