The Human Rights Division of the High Court is expected to hear another motion for an interlocutory injunction against Achimota school over the school’s authorities to deny two Rastafarian students admission into the prestigious institution.
The case is reportedly set to be moved by lawyers of Tyrone Marghuy, one of the two student first-year Rastafarian students who was denied admission during the early weeks of last month because of their dreadlocks.
Evidently, the tug of war between the two students and Achimota School is far from over although the court as of yesterday dismissed a mandatory injunction to have Achimota School temporarily admit the first-year Rastafarian students.
Filing his application, the plaintiff [Tyrone Marhguy] filed his lawsuit on March 31 through his father Tereo Kwame Marhguy. He argued that his basic rights to access to education had been violated by the school considering the school’s refusal to admit him over his dreadlocks.
His lawyers then followed up his application with an interlocutory injunction application asking the court to compel the school to admit him while the case is being heard. They further urged the court to stop the school from interfering with his right to education, and for the school to stop discriminating against him.
The Court is thus expected to hear and rule on this application today.
