‘Decriminalizing Petty Offences’ special on JoyNews Online. Mina Mensah, Director, CHRI and Samuel Lardy Anyenini, Director of Programmes, IHRDA exchanged with the host of Joy News’ programme ‘The Law’ on how laws on petty offences inherently target the poor and marginalised groups by their very nature. Tracing their colonial history and discriminatory nature of these laws, both called for the decriminalisation and/or reclassification of said laws in Ghana.
