The Ahmadiyya Muslim Lawyers Association of Ghana (AMLAG) has freed six inmates from the Navrongo prison in the Upper East Region. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Lawyers Association is an ancillary organization of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community whose members are Ahmadi Muslim legal professionals dedicated to the human and civil rights of persecuted people worldwide.

The six inmates were selected by the prison service for AMLAG to pay their fines in order to be released. These six selected inmates were convicted for various offenses earlier this year, compelling them to either pay a fine or serve a number of years in prison, depending on their offenses.

In a brief speech before the freeing of these six young men to reunite with their families, the national President of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Lawyers Association, Dr. Kamal-Deen Ali, noted that the association operates worldwide with the aim of representing the less privileged in society.


However, AMLAG deemed it necessary to expand its responsibilities beyond legal representation, hence the initiative adopted by the association, dubbed the “Prison Pilot Project,” leading to the release of the six inmates from the Navrongo prison by the association, led by its global leader.

“As Lawyers of Ahmadiyya Muslim Lawyers Association of Ghana, we provide legal representation for our members, and we also represent other vulnerable individuals, which is service to the community and service to humanity. But beyond just legal representation, we find other means of reaching out to the vulnerable or people that we can serve, so one of which we have identified is this maiden prison pilot project. In essence, it is for us to see how we can intervene within prison facilities to contribute to either improving conditions or specifically ensuring the freedom and liberty of people who can be free,” Dr. Kamal-Deen stated.

He believes that the six people will be reformed as they reunite with their family members.

Assistant Director of the prison in the Upper East region, ADP Yakubu Ibrahim Abugrago, expresses happiness about the move taken by AMLAG. ADP Abugrago uses the opportunity to urge inmates to be disciplined and devoid of bad practices in the prison.

Parents of the inmates express heartfelt gratitude to the Ahmadiyya Muslim Lawyers Association of Ghana for the intervention. They describe it as a big relief to the family and pledge to help them reform back at home. The six inmates, who could not hide their excitement, thank AMLAG and promise to reform beyond reasonable doubt in their various communities.
