The Chief Justice, Justice Kwasi Anin Yeboah, has given the assurance that he would ascertain the facts involved in the allegation that a Justice of the Supreme Court tried to bribe a National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament-Elect (MP) to influence her in the election for a Speaker of Parliament.

A press statement signed by the Judicial Secretary, Justice Cynthia Pamela Addo, said the Chief Justice will seek the assistance of the person who made the allegation, the NDC MP for Asawase, Mr Mohammed Mubarak Muntaka.

“The general public is hereby assured that the Hon Chief Justice considers this allegation of impropriety a matter of grave import to the integrity of the Judiciary.”

“The Hon Chief Justice is therefore taking steps to solicit the assistance of Mohammed Mubarak Muntaka, MP, to establish the facts in order that the matter can be dealt with appropriately. The public will be apprised of any further development in due course,” the statement added.

Allegations

In an interview with Accra based Joy News last Sunday, (Jan 10, 2021), Mr Muntaka, who is also the Chief Whip of the NDC caucus in parliament accused a Justice of the Supreme Court of attempting to induce a colleague NDC MP to vote for Prof Aaron Mike Oquaye as the Speaker.


“Shamefully, a Supreme Court judge called a lady colleague telling her what they will give her, if she votes for Prof Mike Oquaye. He told her that, they will help her take care of her children. She can take fuel from a filling station for free for the next four years.

“So we [NDC] are going to look into it. We will look at the time he made those calls,” he stated.
