    Section - 117 - Copies of Charges to be Kept by Company

    (1) Every company shall cause a copy of every instrument creating any charge of which particulars require to be registered under sections 107 to 110 of this Code to be kept at the registered office of the company and at any other office in Ghana at which its register of debenture holders is kept:

    Provided that in the case of a series of uniform debentures, a copy of one debenture of the series shall be sufficient.

    (2) Such copies shall be open to inspection during usual business hours, subject to such reasonable restrictions as the company in general meeting may impose but so that not less than two hours in each day, other than Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays shall be allowed for inspection, by any member or creditor of the company without fee and by any other person on payment of such fee, not exceeding one shilling for each inspection, as the company may prescribe.

    (3) If the company shall make default in complying with subsection (1) of this section or if inspection of the said copies is refused, the company and every officer of the company who is in default shall be liable to a fine not exceeding one hundred pounds, and in the event of any such refusal the Court may by order compel an immediate inspection of the copies.
