1,400 ex-soldiers sue GAF, CDS over wrongful removal

Western_Accord_13_Ghanaian_Soldiers_2013-06-26_B002Over 1,400 ex-military officers who served in the military from 1978 have instituted a court action against the Ghana Armed Forces.

Joined in the suit are the Chief of Defense Staff and the Attorney General over what they describe as improper removal from the Armed forces.The ex-officers are demanding over 20,000.00 compensation each in the writ filed at the Human Rights Court registry moments ago.

The ex-military men were recruited into the Armed Forces between 1977 and 1983.

This is not the first time some ex-military men have sued the Ghana Armed Forces and the Chief of Defense Staff.

In January this year some two hundred and twenty-five retired military officers also sued the Chief of the Defense Staff (CDS) over what they described as under-payment of their gratuities, contrary to what the government approved.

The ex-servicemen who were recruited between 1988 and 1989 had served the country well over 25 years before they commenced their terminal leave in December 2014.

The former military officers are seeking a declaration that deductions made by the CDS on their end-of-service benefits were unlawful.

They also want an order to be directed at the CDS and the AG to be paid the deductions made on their entitlements as approved by the government.

The plaintiffs further want the court to compel the CDS to pay interests on the amounts deducted from their entitlements, as well as other costs, including legal fees.
