- The Supreme Court has birthed a special court to deal with defaulters of TV license fee
- State broadcaster (GBC) has been complaining about the low compliance of TV license payment
A special court has now been established to deal with Ghanaians who fail to pay their TV license.
This development follows an earlier request by the management of GBC for the Chief Justice to establish the special court.
“The Courts located in the Regions are to sit every Thursday with effect from 4th January 2018 until otherwise directed. The time for the Court sitting is 8:30 am to 4 pm,” the memo indicated further.
What this means is that dealers in television sets will pay GH¢5 per month, while commercial license users will pay GH¢3 per month for a television set. The payment will double based on the number of devices.
Attempts to charge Ghanaians for owning television sets have not been successful, but the creation of the special court will bolster such efforts in the future.
YEN.com.gh is building a platform where Ghanaians can share local news and own experiences with each other.
