The High Court presided over by Justice Adrian Fischer has extended an injunction against the main opposition All Peoples Congress party sought by one of its disgruntled diaspora members living in the United States, Alfred Peter Conteh, some seven days ago.

Consequently, lead counsel for the respondents, Ady Macauley has requested a cost of One Billion Leones (Le1BN) from the appellant, Alfred Peter Conteh, if he loses the injunction hearing since he currently resides outside the country.

He said, because it is costly to put a stop on the activities of an entire political party, the applicant should make an undertaking of Le1Bn in an event his action against the party failed.

He said litigants are using the court as a playground to settle scores by bringing similar action against the party after same has been struck out, which he said, is a complete abuse of the process. But Alfred Conteh’s lawyer, Rashid Santigie Sesay begged the court for a cost of Forty Million Leones (Le40M).

However, Ady Macauley argued as to why the court handed down an Ex-Parte injunction on the party instead of an interim injunction, because according to him, it will give an undue advantage to the other party since the party was in the middle of a by-election.

The injunction was extended to five days, pending the court’s ruling on Wednesday 10th March. The full injunction hearing was heard last Friday, after expiration of the original injunction and both counsels have exhaustively argued their case before Justice Adrian Fischer.

A week-long injunction which expired last Friday was slammed on the APC party including its Chairman and Leader, Ernest Bai Koroma and Secretary General, Osman Foday Yansanneh on Friday 26 February, preventing them from holding any political party activities.

An injunction was imposed on the party after Alfred Peter Conteh brought an action against the party challenging the legitimacy of the current executive.
