The office of the President has responded to a petition filed by civil society organization, Alliance for Social Equity and Public Accountability, (ASEPA) for the Chief Justice His Lordship Anin-Yeboah to be investigated over the alleged $5 million bribery allegation.
According to a statement issued by the Office of the President processes to probe the matter had already begun.
The CSO had petitioned the president to invoke provisions of Article 146 to commence impeachment proceedings against the Chief Justice, Kwasi Anin-Yeboah.
But the response to their petition disclosed that processes to remove the CJ from office had already begun.
The bribery allegations were contained in a response of a lawyer, Akwasi Afrifa, in response to a petition filed against him by his client at the disciplinary committee of the General Legal Council (GLC) that he may have been bribed to influence the outcome of a court case.
The CJ has since denied the allegations and officially petitioned the Criminal Investigation Department to probe the matter.
