Eleven unemployed teacher trainees to face court today
At least eleven graduate teacher trainees arrested for unlawful picketing at the Ghana Education Service (GES) headquarters will be arraigned latter today.
The teachers, who are mainly 2016, 2017 and 2018 batches of various Colleges of Education, stormed the GES headquarters on Monday to demand postings, but were unlucky to be arrested by the Accra Police for flouting the public order Act.
Police say the protesters had claimed that they were there on the invitation of the GES but this was proven to be false after checks.
“We followed up and we had information that they haven’t sent any information to that effect. So they were advised to vacate the premises since they had not been invited but the leaders said they were not leaving,” she narrated to reporters after their arrest.
