Justices of Sierra Leone’s Supreme Court today read out their rulings on the injunction request submitted by deposed Vice President Sam Sumana. On March 23 Sam Sumana filed a brief in the Supreme Court against Victor Foh and asked the Supreme Court “for an injunction restraining the said Victor Bockarie Foh from acting in the Office of the Vice-President of Sierra Leone, pending the hearing and determination of this action.

The justices unanimously ruled that it would be “prudent and just for the injunction to be denied”. The other matters of the brief which asked for the Supreme Court to decide on the constitutionality of the Sam Sumana’s removal from office will go to trial on May 12.
