Supreme Court orders release of Ghana-US agreement on 'Gitmo 2'

The Supreme Court has ordered the government of Ghana to release its agreement with the United States government regarding the acceptance of two Guantanamo Bay detainees into the country.

The release of the documents, according to the court, is to be made available only to the lawyers in the matter.

This followed the submission of the verbal agreement otherwise referred to as “Note Verbalizes” in diplomatic circles between the Government of Ghana and its American counterpart, to the court on July 12, 2016, by the Attorney General.

This was because the agreement, according to the AG, was confidential and any disclosure in the public or open court would violate section 1 of the State Secrets ACT, 1962 (Act 101).
