Think-tank Alliance for Social Equity and Public Accountability (ASEPA) has petitioned the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) to investigate Chief Justice Kwasi Anin Yeboah in the recent bribery talks about him.
Renowned legal practitioner Kwesi Afrifa, responding to a petition filed against him by Nana Ogyeedom Obranu Kwesi Atta II at the General Legal Council (GLC), cited the Chief Justice as demanding a bribe of $5 million from the latter.
“ASEPA treats these allegations very seriously and contends that the conduct of the Chief Justice if found to be true is in serious violation of Chapter 24 (Code of Conduct for Public Officers) and several other provisions of our laws,” the petition said.
“It is therefore important that CHRAJ investigates this matter in accordance with the law and recommend appropriate sanctions in respect of the outcome of the investigations to restore the battered image of the judiciary and any other injury this allegation might have cause.”
The Commission swiftly responded to the petition by assuring that “your complaint is receiving the necessary attention and we will revert to you in due course”.
