The Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice, CHRAJ, has dismissed as unsubstantiated a complaint filed by civil society group, Alliance for Social Equity and Public Accountability, ASEPA against a Supreme Court Judge, Gabriel Pwamang.

The group alleged that the judge failed to declare his assets and liabilities as enshrined in the 1992 constitution. The complained was filed in June 2020 requesting an investigation of a number of judges of the Supreme Courts, including Justice Pwamang for breaches of Article 287 of the Constitution and Public Office Holders Act, 1998, Act 550’’.

In the case of Pwamang, CHRAJ indicated that it carried out investigations into the complaint in line with its processes and procedures, and it established that upon his appointment to the Supreme Court on 30th June 2015,he made his first declaration of assets and liabilities on 18th November, 2015 and then a second declaration was made after four years, as required by the constitution and Act 550’’.

According to CHRAJ, the investigations however revealed that the Office of the Auditor–General, in March 2020 suspended the collection of Assets Declaration Forms from public servants on account of the COVID-19 pandemic and this affected the time of the filling of the second declaration.
