- Government's attempt to secure a stay of execution of a court order has been thrown out of the Court of Appeals
- The three man judge panel found that government's case was without merit
- It is the latest development in the saga between government and it's attempt to deport an Indian businessman
The Attorney-General's office has been unsuccessful yet again at securing a favorable verdict at the Court of Appeals with regards to government's bid to seek a stay of execution of a previous court order directing Immigration Services to restore an Indian businessman his resident and work permit.
According to the Court of Appeals decision, which was made up of three judges, government's application via the AG's department was without merit, and therefore ruled against government.
This ruling, which occurred on Wednesday, November 8th, brings the amount of times government has lost to the Indian businessman to 4, in it's continuous endeavors to have Mr. Sivaram deported from Ghana.
This ruling was directly preceded by one which the AG's office withdrew last week with out providing any reason for the withdrawal.

The entire debacle began when the Interior Minister "determined fraud" and sought to deport Mr. Sivaram from Ghana, an order the India businessman contested by taking the Interior Minister to court. Mr. Sivaram's deportation order was later quashed on July 31st, 2017 by a High Court decision.
Another court decision in September ordered Immigration Services to restore the Indian businessman's resident and work permit, something the service has failed to do up till present.
Mr. Sivaram is of the opinion that what he sees as harassment from the Interior Ministry and the Immigration Service is motivated by an attempt to transfer his interests to his business partner, something the Immigration Comptroller-General completely denies.
