Bridget Otoo sues IGP and AG for the tearing of her blouse by the police during #OccuppyJulorbiHouseDemo

As a result of being assaulted by several police officers during the #OccupyJulorbiHouse demonstration last year, Bridget Otoo, an activist and broadcast journalist, together with two other people, have filed lawsuits against the Attorney General and the Inspector General of Police.

In order to request the enforcement of essential human rights (as guaranteed by Articles 24 (1), 162 (5), 21 (1) (A), 162 (4), 21 (1) (D), 15 (1) and (2), 14 (1), and 18 (2) of the constitution), the three applicants—Bridget Otoo, Vanessa Edotom Boateng, and George Agyening Anyang—have prayed to the court.

According to the writ, this lawsuit appears to have been filed before the Democracy Hub, the people behind the #OccuppyJulorbiHouseDemo, who have also filed a lawsuit alleging that the police violated their human rights.

A video that went viral on social media in September of last year captured the exact moment that Bridget was attacked.

In the midst of protests by other demonstrators demanding the release of their detained colleagues, two unidentified men emerged from the Accra Regional Police Command of the Ghana Police Service at Tudu and charged at her, pushing her with great force in an attempt to drag her into the building’s gated yard.

After being released go, it appeared that Bridget Otoo said the police had physically attacked her and other participants, tearing off a portion of her top.
