Some where in June 2005, the Ghana Railway Corporation issued a notice of eviction to the applicants saying that the Government of Ghana want to concession the railway system to a private concessioner to rehabilitate and ran the existing railway system in Ghana. The Corporation intended to carryout this action without provision for alternative settlements.
CEPIL is seeking an order from the court to restrain Ghana Railway Corporation from evicting them along the railway lines without alternative settlement. The Center sees the action as a violation of the applicants’ fundamental human rights and their right to housing and livelihoods.
The case is still pending in Accra High Court.
