Ghanaian Parliament Passes Data Protection Bill


After reports last July that the Data Protection Bill had been withdrawn from Ghana’s Parliament for adjustments, the bill was re-introduced and Parliament has passed the bill on February 10.  The Act, said to be awaiting presidential assent to be fully operational, is modeled upon European precedents and will set out the rights and responsibilities of data controllers, data processors and data subjects in relation to personal data, under the supervisory authority of a Data Protection Commission.  Ghana swore in a new President, John Atta Mills, a 64-year-old law professor, on January 8.
