President Mahama has fired CHRAJ boss Ms Lauretta Lamptey in accordance with Article 146(9) after receiving reccomendations by a committee set up the Chief Justice to investigate the commissioner for allegation of corruption and financial malpractice brought up against her.
One Richard Nyamah convener for pressure group, Progressive Nationalist Forum (PNF) and NPP Member of Parliament for Nsawam Adoagyir Anoh Dompreh petitioned the president to impeach Ms Lamptey from office as commissioner for CHRAJ.
Ms Lamptey was alleged to have spent over 200, 000 dollars as rent at the plush AU Village and another 180, 000 cedis on the renovation of her official apartment as commissioner.
The committee set up by the CJ in their finding established a prima facie case against her and subsequently recommended that she should be fired since she was unfit to hold her office as commissioner for CHRAJ.
Ms Lamptey on the 16th September was accused of spending an amount of $180, 000 as rent at the plush AU Village. The sit6uation led the convener of the Progressive Nationalist Forum to call on her to resign to save the image of the commission.
The President. John Mahama acting on the advice of the judicial council, pursuant to article 146(10) (b) of the 1992 constitution, suspended Ms Lamptey in January 2015.
The suspension was after prima facie was established against Ms. Lamptey by the Chief Justice, and the setting up of a five (5)-member committee to investigate complaints made against her.
