Treason-felony trial of Barker-Vormawor adjourned to May 20

The treason case against Oliver Barker-Vormawor, organizer of the #FixTheCountry movement, has been postponed until May 20, 2024.

Initially, the court was to decide on jurisdiction following a motion filed by the activist’s lawyers contesting the constitutionality of the charge. Additionally, there was a request for the judge to refer the case to the Supreme Court.

In anticipation of Monday’s proceedings, Barker-Vormawor had urged supporters of the #FixTheCountry movement on his social media platform to attend court in solidarity. However, due to the judge’s participation in a training program, the highly anticipated trial did not occur.

Barker-Vormawor was arrested and charged for a social media post deemed by police investigators as intending to undermine Ghana’s constitution. He was apprehended on Friday, February 11, 2022, at Kotoka International Airport upon returning from the United Kingdom.
