LISTEN JUL 27, 2006

An Accra Fast Track High Court will resume sitting in the case in which Miss Ghana 2005, Ms Lamisi Mbillah is seeking to stop this year's Miss Ghana Pageant from coming off this weekend until the organisers, Sparrow Productions Limited fulfilled their obligations to her.

The Court had fixed July 31, 2006 for hearing, but Sparrows Productions Limited pleaded for the case to be brought forward so that the Pageant will come off this weekend.

Lamisi last Monday, filed a writ at the Court seeking an order of interim injunction to restrain Sparrow Productions from organising the event.

The writ filed by Dr Raymond Atuguba has Ms Shirley Frimpong Manso, Chief Executive Officer of Sparrow Productions Limited; Ms Jayne Awoornor-Williams, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of Sparrow Productions Limited and Sparrow Productions Limited, all of Accra, as Defendants.

In an affidavit in support of her application, Ms Mbillah said when she won the Miss Ghana crown in July 2005, she was promised a number of things as her prize by Sparrow Productions Limited.

It included a car; 10,000 dollars; travel tickets and monthly allowances.

Relieves being sought by Ms Mbillah include a declaration that the prize car for Miss Ghana 2005, a Kia Rio saloon car with registration number GT 3282 W, is her property; an order compelling Sparrow Production Limited to transfer title of car to her.

Lawyers of Sparrow Productions Limited, said Ms Mbillah refused to sign a contract as was required by the organisers.

The contract spells out the obligations, as well as the rights of Miss Ghana. Counsel for Sparrow Productions, Kwame Akuffo is optimistic about the outcome of today's hearings
