Commissioner of Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ), Joseph Whittal has been explaining his calls to Parliament to pass the Public Officers Conduct Bill.

On GBC’s current affairs programme, ‘Behind the News’, Mr. Whittal said that the several cases of conflict of interest that have come up recently, particularly that of the Chief Executive of the Public Procurement Authority, could have been prevented, if  such a law exists.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo suspended the Chief Executive Officer of the Public Procurement Authority, Mr Agyenim Boateng Adjei, over the ‘Contracts for Sale’ documentary.

This follows the broadcast of the allegations made against Mr Adjei in an investigative documentary conducted by Manasseh Azure Awuni, titled “Contracts for Sale”.

A statement signed and issued by the Director of Communications at the Presidency, Mr Eugene Arhin on Thursday – August 22, 2019 – said “President Akufo-Addo has, subsequently, referred the allegations involving conflict of interest to the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ), and those relating to potential acts of corruption to the Office of Special Prosecutor, for their prompt action.”
