The Government is under pressure to secure about ¢30 billion for the payment of salary arrears of 711 police personnel who were unconstitutionally retired over a decade ago. The personnel will today, Tuesday, obtain a final judgement from an Accra High Court to force the government to effect the payment with interest.

Another High Court presided over by Justice G. A. Aryettey, has already granted them an interlocutory judgement requesting the Police Administration to pay them.

Today’s judgment is therefore, only going to be in the form of a certificate of claim to be served on the Inspector General of Police compelling him to effect the payment.

The Police Administration retired the personnel at the age of 55 instead of the 60 years mandated by the constitution.
