Metro Ghana Sacks 20 Judges Suspended Over Bribery Allegation



Twenty judges and magistrates of the Circuit Court previously suspended by the Ghana Judicial Council, for allegedly taking bribe to subvert justice have been dismissed.

Their dismissal followed the recommendation by the committee constituted by the Chief Justice, Justice Georgina Theodora Wood, to investigate the bribery allegation brought against them.

The Chief Justice, who announced the dismissal at a press conference, explained that they violated the constitution of the Republic of Ghana, just as she vowed to uphold the integrity of the judiciary.

Some of the affected judges and magistrates were dismissed without benefits, while some will be entitled to benefits.
