On November 24, the High Court will render a decision in the case challenging the Finance Act 2023.
On November 24, a decision will also be made in the case against the director-general of the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA), who is accused of disobeying the court’s order by enforcing the law.
This comes after the pertinent parties in the law-obstruction lawsuit on Wednesday made their arguments.
Senator Okiya Omtatah of Busia brought the contempt lawsuit against the EPRA director.
When EPRA raised the VAT on petrol from 8% to 16% on June 30, he is accused of acting in violation of a court decision that temporarily halted the implementation of the Finance Act 2023.
