Pressure group Alliance for Social Equity and Public Accountability (ASEPA) has petitioned the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) to investigate some Supreme Court judges for failing to declare their assets in contravention of the 1992 Constitution.

ASEPA cited Article 286 of the Constitution of Ghana, which states that: “A person who holds a public office mentioned in Clause 5 of the article shall submit to the Auditor-General a written declaration of all properties or assets owned by or liabilities owed by him whether directly or indirectly’ within three months after the coming into force of this Constitution and at the end of every four years”, to buttress its case.

Also, ASEPA quoted that: “Failure to declare or knowingly making false declaration shall be a contravention of this Constitution and shall be dealt with in accordance with Article 287 of this Constitution”.

ASEPA is there invoking “the jurisdiction of CHRAJ to commence investigations into the allegation of non-disclosure of assets and liabilities” against the Supreme Court judges who failed to act in accordance with the Constitution.
