CHRAJ

  • Mr Amidu who is investigating potential acts of corruption on the part of Mr Adjei, said his office was collaborating with the office of the Auditor-General but that collaboration was cut short due to the conduct of his investigators.

    The Special Prosecutor, Mr Martin Amidu, claims his criminal investigations on former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Public Procurement Authority (PPA), Mr Adjenim Boateng Adjei, have been delayed because his investigators have been compromised.

  • CHRAJ similarly wants the President or the Inter-Ministerial Committee on COVID-19 to advise the EC on the potential public health risk and safety associated with the planned Voters' Registration.

    The Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) wants President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to call the National Identification Authority (NIA) to order following its continuance of the mass Ghana Card registration exercise in the Eastern Region in the face of the outbreak of the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Ghana.

  • In respect of the allegation that the Minister has interest in Batabank and Enterprise, CHRAJ found such interest to be significantly present.

    In the previous part of this note, I concluded that CHRAJ could only clear the Minister of the allegations of conflict of interest violations if it finds the following: (1) That the Minister did not breach the BoG rules on issuing such bonds; (2) That the alleged crony-relationship did not exist; or (3) that even if the alleged crony-relationships existed, the Minister has taken refuge at the safe harbour under Article 78(3).

  • The Complainant’s allegations are that the Minister cooked the US$ 2.25 billion bond deal for his cronies.

    We know that CHRAJ has cleared the Minister of the allegation of breach of conflict of interest rules. My claim is that the evidence on record could not allow CHRAJ to come to that conclusion. I’ve been writing this note to show this. In Part 1 of this note, I disclosed some of the challenges that the Deputy A-G faced in defending the Minister at CHRAJ. In Part 2, I attempted a simplified explanation of the concept of conflict of interest. In this Part 3 of the note, I’ll begin to dissect the CHRAJ report. Particularly, I’ll outline the circumstances under which CHRAJ could clear the Minister of the allegations.
