The Chief Justice Georgina Theodora Wood is being challenged by three embattled judges --Justice Paul Uuter Dery, Justice Ayisi Addo and Justice Habib Logoh -- for appointing a private attorney to represent her instead of the attorney general.

The three judges were among some 22 judges who were indicted in the Anas exposé for allegedly taking bribes to tilt justice.

They have cited the Chief Justice for contempt of court after she sanctioned impeachment proceedings against them, claiming they had over suits in court related to their impeachment.

The interdicted judges argue in their writ of summons that it is only the Attorney General…who has a constitutional responsibility to represent the Chief Justice…as lawyer in all civil actions against the Chief Justice in any court in Ghana.”

They are asking the Supreme Court to declare as unconstitutional when the Chief Justice instructed Kizito Beyuo to represent her the suit which is challenging the official act of the Chief Justice.

In addition, the embattled judges are praying the court to declare “the entry of appearance filed by Kizito Beyuo for and on behalf of the Chief Justice as alien to the rules of practice and procedure of this court prescribed in C.I. 16 and as such, same as void.”

“An order nullifying the entry of appearance by Kizito Beyuo, for and on behalf of the Chief Justice, the 1st Defendant herein.”
