Emelia Amoateng and 34 others vs Ghana Australia Goldfields

The Defendants, Ghana Australian Goldfields Ltd. somewhere in 2001 dumped rock waste on the Plaintiffs’ farms and in the process destroyed food and economic crops such as Oil Palm, Cocoa, Coconut, Cassava, Pineanapple, Cocoayam etc. The company offered some form of compensation based on the acreage system to some of the farmers.

Members of the Teberebe Concerned Farmers Association refused the compensation offered and insisted on the head count system of enumerating their crops for compensation which they consider will be fair and adequate compensation for their destroyed crops.

CEPIL on behalf of the Plaintiffs instituted this suit in the High Court, Tarkwa seeking for the payment of adequate compensation and also declarations that the Defendant’s action is in violation of the fundamental human rights of the Plaintiffs under the 1992 Constitution and International Law especially the right to prompt, fair and adequate compensation for property takings.
