The Right to Information Commission (RIC), has ordered the Lands Commission to release information on ‘returned’ State lands to pressure group, OccupyGhana.

The commission has also imposed an administrative fine of GH¢100,000 on the Lands Commission for earlier denying OccupyGhana the information.

OccupyGhana had questioned the move by the Lands Commission to declassify parts of the Achimota Forest as a reserve and give it out to the Owoo family, said to be the orginal owners of the land before it was classified as a forest reserve.

OccupyGhana dragged the Lands Commission to the Right to Information Commission after its application of seeking information on returned state lands was turned down.
