The dismissed Chief Executive Officer of the Public Procurement Authority (PPA), Adjenim Boateng Adjei, has sued the Commission for Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) at the Accra High Court.

The suit filed at the Court on November 27, accused CHRAJ of breaching the principle of natural justice by keeping certain key information from him and his lawyers.

He claimed he was not treated fairly in the ‘Contract for Sale’ probe conducted by the institution. Mr. Adjei argued that he was kept in the dark over witnesses whose testimonies CHRAJ relied on to make the judgment.

Among many allegations, Mr. Adjei said his lawyers were not given the chance to cross-examine the witnesses and also he was not made to answer certain findings made by the commission in its work.

He noted that CHRAJ made “several site trips to several locations to gather evidence which it relied on to arrive at its decision.

Mr. Adjei is therefore urging the High Court to quash CHRAJ’s report and expunge it from the records. He also asked the court to revoke President Akufo-Addo’s directive asking him to vacate his post which was premised on a request by CHRAJ.

Meanwhile, the Commission says money accrued in Mr. Adjei accounts since assuming office in 2017 stood at 14.8 million cedis from his Dollar and Euro accounts held at two banks.

According to CHRAJ, Mr. Adjei could not satisfactorily explain the source of the large volumes of excess wealth that passed through his bank accounts between March 2017 and August 2019.

Mr. Adjei, who was earlier suspended in August 2019, was sacked by President Akufo-Addo on October 30, based on recommendations from CHRAJ.
