High Court Throws Out Rastafarian Student’s Injunction Against Achimota School

The Rastafarian student, Tyrone Marghuy who was denied admission by the Achimota senior high school for his hairstyle, has had his injunction against the school dismissed by the Human Rights Division of the Accra High Court.

The court, presided over by Justice Gifty Agyei Addo said the applicant failed procedurally on both interim injunctions which were to last for 10 days or interlocutory injunction which was to last throughout the hearing of the case.

The injunction sought the court to order Achimota School to admit the applicant for him to attend classes pending the final determination of the substantive matter.

However, the court noted that it cannot grant the injunction because such a decision will prejudice the outcome of the case because the respondents have not been put on notice.
