Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Information available to YEN.com.gh shows that the Bank of Ghana (BoG) has been slapped with a GHc2,000 cost by the Court of Appeal.
This comes after the court dismissed its case against HODA Holdings after uniCredit Savings and Loans’ licence had been revoked.
HODA Holdings, the parent company of uniCredit Savings and Loans, then took the BoG to court to challenge the revocation of the licence.
Before the substantive case was heard, the Bank of Ghana filed an application asking the court to trash the case.
Per a report by classfmonline.com, it explained that uniCredit failed to properly invoke the jurisdiction of the court.
The BoG further argued that the applicant ought to have first begun an arbitration process.
According to the court, the bank failed to make a convincing case, hence it's ruling.
The judges who determined the case were Justice Welbourne, Justice Eric Kyei-Baffour, and Justice N. C. A. Agbevor.
Justice Gifty Agyei Addo of the Human Rights Division of the Accra High Court earlier dismissed an application by the bank. The application was intended to halt proceedings initiated against the Central Bank by HODA Holdings.

According to the institute, it had no hand in the collapse of banks owned by Dr Kwabena Duffuor or Dr Paa Kwesi Nduom.
Until the collapse of their banks, the two men owned uniBank Ghana Limited and GN Bank.
