The bail application of #FixTheCountry convener Oliver Mawuse Barker-Vormawor has been postponed by the Tema High Court until Wednesday, March 16, 2022.
A social media post by Barker-Vormawor stated that he wanted to organize a revolution over the contentious 1.75 percent E-levy. He is now facing a treason criminal accusation.
Since his arrest at Kotoka International Airport on February 11, 2022, he has been in police detention.
Prior to last Thursday, March 10, 2022, a hearing on the bail application was scheduled.
It became hard for his attorneys to free him when the Attorney General’s Office filed a late resistance to the bail application.
At issue was whether Oliver had an established residence and if he cooperated with the police in their investigations. The AG’s department asserted both in its objection.
After being charged with treason felony according to section 182 (b) of the Criminal Offences Act, 1960 Act 29, he was originally refused bail by the Ashaiman District Court.
A motion by his attorneys to claim the Supreme Court’s original jurisdiction and its supervisory authority to intervene in Barker-ongoing Vormewor’s imprisonment was likewise thrown out as withdrawn.
However, Barker-Vormawor pled not guilty to treason charges.
Since his initial appearance at Ashaiman District Court on February 14 and 28, 2022, he has remained on remand.
On March 15, 2022, he is scheduled to appear before Ashaiman District Court.
