Suspended Courts of Appeal in the Country to Resume

Western North appeals were to be heard by the Court of Appeal in Kumasi because of nearness, while the Central and Western Court of Appeal would be re-opened in Sekondi and not Cape Coast.

Courts of Appeals suspended during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 are to resume sitting this month (April). 

Chief Justice Gertrude Sackey Torkornoo  made this known when she addressed the Judicial Press Corps on April 4, 2024.

Chief Justice Torkornoo disclosed that she will make known her vision for effective justice delivery in the country on April 8, 2024.
