AG’s application against Indian businessman dismissed again
The Court of Appeal has dismissed an application
of a stay of execution by the Attorney General in
the case where the residence and work permits of
an Indian Businessman, Ashok Sivaram are under

According to the court made up of three justices,
the application and argument by the AG were
unmeritorious, hence their decision to dismiss it.
The decision by judges brings to four, the number
of times the state has lost in its bid to have the
businessman thrown out of the country.

Wednesday’s ruling follows a new application filed
by the Attorney General represented by a state
attorney, Jasmine Armah, after it withdrew a
similar one last week without any reasons.

The state has been seeking a stay of execution
after it was ordered by the High Court to within
seven days restore the work and residence permit
of the Indian Businessman.


The court on July 31, 2017, quashed
the deportation of Mr. Sivaram by the Interior
Minister, Ambrose Derry.

According to the court, the Interior
Minister exceeded his jurisdiction by determining
fraud against the Indian businessman without
recourse to the court.

The High Court in September ordered the
Immigration service to restore the work and
residence permit of Mr. Sivaram within seven days,
after months of failing to do so, despite a
decision quashing his deportation due to its
illegal nature.

But Mr. Sivaram, since his return to the country,
has not been given a visa despite a court order.

The Indian businessman has also petitioned
President Nana Akufo-Addo to call the Minister of
Interior and the Comptroller of the Ghana
Immigration Service to order over what he termed
as harassment by the two.

Mr. Sivaram said he was constantly being harassed
by officials of the Ghana Immigration Service, and
he believes his frustrations are part of a grand
scheme to transfer interests in his company, Jai
Mai Communications Limited, to his business

The Comptroller-General of the Ghana Immigration
Service, Kwame Asuah Takyi, has however rejected
accusations that he is conniving with the Interior
Minister to frustrate the Indian businessman.
