The supreme court has dismissed an application by Jeleel Company Ghana Limited seeking declaration and recovery of possession of a parcel of land lying at Adenta with named boundaries and containing approximately 10.98 acres of land.

The applicants wanted a relief against the defendant (Trassaco) which also included an order directed at the Lands Commission to expunge any recorded transactions affecting the land in dispute. While the high court had earlier entered a final judgement in favour of the applicant the Supreme Court has now overturned the ruling and also dismissed an application for stay of execution to obtain leave before filing the appeal fails.

In the judgement, the Supreme Court stated, …”the application for the Stay of Execution is however dismissed on a more substantive ground of failure to comply with the mandatory requirement provided in order 43 r(3)which is fundamental to substances of the application The application of the stay of execution thus fails.”

Below is the ruling
