Listen to article

The Disciplinary Committee of the Judicial Council has started interrogating a Supreme Court Judge and two others alleged to have attempted to bribe the Supervising High Court judge of Cape Coast.

The bribe was allegedly offered two months ago for the High Court judge to decide a case in favour of a faction in the Mankessim Chieftaincy dispute.

The Disciplinary Committee has been given two weeks to complete work and submit its report to the Chief Justice for the appropriate action to be taken.

Mr. Justice K.K. Acquaye, the High Court judge, has submitted a hand written report in which he confirmed the alleged bribery by the Supreme Court Judge.

Mr. Emmanuel Owusu Ansah, the judicial Secretary, disclosed this in an interview in Accra.
