To be able to record proceedings in court, you would have to be given authorisation under the court act, according to legal practitioner, Kwame Akuffo.
This comes on the back of the arrest of two journalists Caleb Kudah and Zoe Abu Baidoo by operatives of the National Security.
According to National Security, Caleb was filming at a security zone; the premises of the National Security Ministry.
The question now is which areas are tagged security zones and are there any strict legal regime or acts guiding people recording or taking pictures in security zones, courts, or other restricted areas.
Lawyer Akuffo in an interview educated the media on recording proceedings in court.
According to him, “The courtroom is under the authority of the judge and regulated by the court Act. Under the court act, all recordings in the courtroom are done by the judiciary. Therefore anybody contradicting that position can be in contempt of court. If you’re not permitted you can be held in contempt”.
