Conveners of the #FixTheCountry Movement have hinted at taking legal action against the Ghana Revenue Authority, GRA should it implement the E-levy despite the Minority’s pending injunction against the rollout.
The Conveners argue that any attempt by the GRA to enforce the levy on May 1, will amount to contempt of court.
In a letter written to the Commissioner-General of the GRA, the Movement demanded that the Authority be “stopped from implementing the E-levy until a competent Court declares otherwise.
Some members of the Minority Caucus have gone to the Supreme Court to fight the passage of the E-levy.
They subsequently filed an injunction on the implementation of the E-levy pending the final determination of the case. However, the GRA has given notification that the tax measure is coming into full force in May, a position the Fix the Country Conveners find problematic. They have thus vowed to use available legal means to stop the GRA.
The Apex Court has scheduled the hearing of the case for May 4, 2022, three days after the planned date for the implementation of the levy.
