Court orders seizure of 6 GHS cars over 150k judgment debt
A Kumasi High court has ordered the seizure of six vehicles of the Ashanti regional directorate of the Ghana Health Service over its failure to settle a GHC150,000.00 judgment debt.
According to Ultimate FM’s Ashanti regional correspondent Isaac Bediako Justice, armed police officers stormed the premises of the GHS to confiscate the cars after the ruling Monday morning.
The court had ordered the GHS to pay the fine after a mistake on their part during a circumcision exercise left a young boy with serious complications.
But the GHS has failed to honour the judgment prompting the latest order by the court. The court also imposed an additional fine of GHC50.000.00 for the failure of the health service to comply with the directive.
A bailiff with the Kumasi High court Amoanin Joseph told Bediako in an interview that the court will hold on to the vehicles until the debt is settled by the GHS.
