Jurors in Ghana have been on strike since May 16, 2024, due to unpaid allowances spanning 10 months. This strike is causing major delays in several important trials, including those involving the murder of an 11-year-old boy in Kasoa and the killing of former MP JB Danquah.

The jurors play a critical role in Ghana’s legal system by determining guilt or innocence in serious criminal cases. Their strike has led to repeated adjournments in these trials, frustrating efforts to deliver justice in a timely manner.

Other cases affected include the trial of Gregory Afoko for the murder of NPP regional chairman Adams Mahama, and the Abesim murder case involving the deaths of two children.

The strike is expected to continue until the jurors’ allowances are paid, with trials rescheduled for July 2024 pending resolution of the dispute.
