Oliver Barker-Vormawor granted GH¢2M bail


FixTheCountry convener, Oliver Mawuse Barker-Vormawor has been granted bail by the High Court in Tema.

The bail conditions are set at GH¢2 million with 2 sureties, one of whom is to deposit documents to his landed property.

Mr Barker-Vormawor’s passport should also remain in the custody of the Republic, and he must report himself once a week to the police command.

Justice Daniel Mensah ruled that the Court cannot disable itself from the grant of bail, having regard to the facts of the case and the legal arguments urged upon him by both counsel for Mr. Vormawor and the Republic.
He disagreed with arguments of the position that Mr. Vormawor did not have a fixed place of abode having regard to the facts of the case; and that he was at flight risk since his passport was already in the custody of the Republic.
