- Court of Appeal dismisses claim over some 88 National security operatives in Ghana.
- The former operatives are demanding end of service benefits for unlawful termination of contract.
- The court dismissed their claim, hence the operatives are angry.
A court of appeal in Accra has dismissed an application by 88 former national security operatives who are demanding end of service benefits for unlawful termination of contract by the state.
The 88 former national security operatives claim that they had worked for the state between 2001 and 2009 by providing services to foreign high commissioners who were posted to Ghana. They further added that their appointments were terminated on 20th July, 2009 after being appointed on 13 August, 2001.
The security operatives claim that they were only paid for three months and were not given any benefits for what they describe as unlawful termination of their contract.
Giving his ruling, the court of Appeal presided over by Judge, Justice Dennis Adjei noted that, the three months’ salary paid them is enough especially when the Labour Law and the National Security Act, does not entitle them to any end of service benefit in view of the fact that they did not retire from the service.
Judge Justice Dennis Adjei dismissed their application.
