Summary: Transparency International & Ors V Republic of Ghana (the Agyapa Case)

how to prepare for a court appearance

On December 20, 2020, Transparency International (TI), Ghana Integrity Initiative (GII), and Ghana Anti-Corruption Coalition (GACC) filed an application at the ECOWAS Court for the enforcement of fundamental human rights under Article 33 of the Rules of the ECOWAS Court, Article 21(1) of the African Charter on Human and Peoples Rights, Article 2(1) and (2), 3(1), 16(1) and 17(3) of the Revised African Convention on the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources.

The plaintiffs argue that the enactment of the Minerals Income Investment Fund (MIIF) Act and the proposed execution of a Relationship Agreement between GoG, MIIF, and Agyapa Royalties Limited amounts to an interference with the rights of the people of Ghana to permanent sovereignty over natural resources as it would lead to a loss of about 75.6% of gold royalties in perpetuity.
