The Chief Justice Kwasi Anin-Yeboah has gone into self isolation for 14 days “upon the advice of his doctors in compliance with Covid-19 protocols”.
A press statement issued in Accra and signed by the Judicial Secretary, Cynthia Pamela Addo, said, “His Lordship will be working from the Chief Justice’s official residence at Cantonment.”
This comes hours after the Supreme Court adjourned all cases scheduled for hearing this week over fears of the Coronavirus disease.
It is unclear the scale of the spread of the virus within the Judiciary but Citi News’ checks show that the Supreme Court has adjourned all cases which were scheduled to be heard this week.
All nine cases listed to be heard by the Judges from Tuesday, July 7, 2020, have been rescheduled to yet-to-be-announced dates.
Some courts have also been closed with some members of the judicial services confirmed to have tested positive for the virus.
The adjournment of the cases, therefore, comes as a measure to reduce the number of infections at the law courts.
