Minority leader in Parliament, Haruna Idrissu, and two NDC MPs are asking the supreme Court to control the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) from its arranged execution of the Electronic Exchanges Toll on May 1st.
Along with Mahama Ayariga and Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, the MPs have sued the Head legal officer contending that Parliament didn’t have the necessary number of at minimum portion of its individuals present when the disputable expense strategy was supported
Before the not entirely set in stone by the High Court the officials need this break measure set up.
“That since the sacred legitimacy of the entry of the Electronic Exchange Toll Act, 2022(Act 1075) is the gravamen of our case under the steady gaze of the Noteworthy Court, it is appropriate, just, and impartial that the Public authority of Ghana through the GRA or its officials and specialists are controlled from starting with the execution of the Duty until the assurance of the considerable suit under the watchful eye of the Decent Court”, reports recorded in the interest of the three lawmakers say.
Private lawful professional, Godwin Tameklo who recorded the archives in the interest of the MPs, says an inability to limit the GRA would cause what is happening of conceivable hopeless damage to citizens.
“That except if the Ghana Income Authority is limited, hopeless mischief would be occasioned to the Offended parties and furthermore to a huge number of residents of Ghana and any remaining people in Ghana on the premise that assuming the Court invalidates the entry of the Electronic Exchange Duty Act, 2022(Act 1075), the public authority wouldn’t be in any kind of mood to repay all the monies paid in huge numbers of residents of Ghana and any remaining people.
This will prompt the awful circumstance of government unreasonably advancing itself in view of lawlessness to the detriment of the residents of Ghana and any remaining people in Ghana.”
