$5m bribe: Akufo-Addo starts ‘appropriate processes’ on ASEPA’s ‘remove CJ’ petition

President Akufo-Addo has set in motion processes geared at determining whether or not Chief Justice, Kwasi Anin-Yeboah should be removed from office. This follows a petition by pressure group Alliance for Social Equity and Public Accountability (ASEPA) demanding the removal of the Chief Justice.

The Chief Justice (CJ) has been in the news in recent weeks following allegations by a private legal practitioner, Akwasi Afrifa that he had asked for a $5 million bribe to deliver a favourable judgment in a case involving his client.

Justice Anin-Yeboah has since denied the allegations and asked the Police CID to probe the matter.

ASEPA contends the CJ is unfit to hold office and wants him removed.

A letter written to the Executive Director of ASEPA by Secretary to the President Nana Bediatuo Asante indicates that the President has commenced the appropriate processes.
