Court orders GIS to grant Indian businessman visa

An Accra High Court, presided over by Justice Naa Adorley Azu, has ordered the Ghana Immigration Service to grant embattled Indian businessman, Ashok Kumar Sivaram, a temporary visa to enable him stay and defend his case in court.

Mr Sivaram was deported by the Ghana Immigration Service per a deportation order by the Ministry of Interior after it was discovered that he forged a marriage certificate to support his application to have Ghanaian citizenship. That order was later revoked by the Court.


The Indian businessman, who has been in Ghana for almost a decade, has petitioned President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to intervene, as he claims the Ministry and the Service have a hidden agenda to seize his business.



A TV3 investigation last Monday revealed that Mr Sivaram is still married to his Indian wife, Seema Nambiar Ashok, of 30 years, contrary to information provided on his application in 2008.

But for him to still be a legitimate citizen while an application for mandamus has been filed in court, a temporary citizenship has been ordered to be given him.
