Court case against GNPC's $700m loan adjourned Case against GNPC's $700m loan adjourned

The Commercial Court hearing the case in which some three Members of Parliament are suing the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation over a loan has adjourned the case.

The adjournment was upon the request of counsel for the three MPs.

Nana Asante Bediatuo, according to Joy News' Kwakye Afreh Nuamah, told the court presided over by Justice Janapare Bartels-Kodwo, on Wednesday that he had come upon new and relevant information bordering on the case and would like to amend his documents.

The Plaintiffs were consequently granted leave to amend their statement of case relative to the supplementary affidavit to be filed.

Counsel for Defendants, Tony Lithur, said he was ready to respond to the issues in Court.

The Court adjourned hearing to Thursday, 11 December, 2014.

Samuel Atta Akyea (Abuakwa South), Mathew Opoku Prempeh (Manhyia South) and Dr. Anthony Osei Akoto (Old Tafo), all opposition MPs, are seeking to stop the GNPC from acquiring a $700M loan without Parliamentary approval.

Mr. Atta Akyea said the conduct of the GNPC amounts to a flagrant constitutional violation which must be curbed.

He said the matter is not a simple case of civil litigation, it is a serious constitutional matter.
