Court throws out Paul Afoko's case against NPP

A Human Rights Court in Accra has "thrown out" Paul Afoko's case against the New Patriotic Party.

According to a report on StarrFMOnline.com, the court dismissed the case saying the plaintiff had "no case."

Mr Afoko had hauled the NPP leadership to court after what the claimant described as "an unlawful suspension" from the party last year.

His lawsuit demanded that the court overturns his suspension.

The court on Monday, 15th August 2016, ruled that Mr. Afoko has no case and thus his suspension remains legitimate.

Afoko's suit also challenged the legitimacy of two members of the disciplinary committee, Madam Gifty Kusi and Alhaji Short, who voted to suspend him on the grounds that his actions and inactions were inimical to the political fortunes of the NPP.
