High Court again dismisses suit to temporarily admit Rasta student to Achimota school

The Human Rights Division of the High Court has dismissed the second injunction application filed by a Rastafarian student, Tyrone Marhguy, against the Achimota School.

Marhguy was demanding that the school temporarily admits him pending the final determination of the substantive case about him being denied admission for having dreadlocks.

The court Monday, April 12, dismissed a similar application filed by another Rastafarian, Oheneba Kwaku Nkrabea, asking that he should be admitted pending the final determination of the substantive case.

Justice Gifty Addo in her ruling held that the application in its entirety touches on the substance of the substantive suit and would thus be pre-emptive.

She reasoned that the best course of action would be to expedite the trial in the best interest of Tyrone’s education. The case has been adjourned to April 23, 2021, for hearing to commence.
