Deputy Attorney General, Godfred Dame, opposed the application by suggesting that the rules of procedure request the applicants to amend their statement of case rather than seeking to add to same.
Lawyer for the Applicant, Tony Lithur, however argued that the Supreme Court has the power to accept the procedure they have adopted by way of seeking to add to their Statement of case instead of Amending it.
The Presiding Judge ruled that the rule of procedure are clear and they cannot be bend just to please the applicants. He subsequently dismissed the application.
The substantive case entitled “Dominic Ayine verses the Attorney General and Martin Amidu” is yet to be heard by the full bench of the Supreme Court.
