The committee which is set up by the Office of the Chief Justice and will be head by Mr Justice Anin Yeboah, a Justice of the Supreme Court.

The committee will investigate complaints of serious misconduct, inappropriate exercise of office, serious misjudgment, breaches of the law and public trust against the CHRAJ boss.

This follows the establishment of a prima facie case against her.

A petition by Mr Richard Nyamah of the Progressive Nationalists Forum and Mr Annor Dompreh, the MP for Nsawam-Adoagyiri, to the President sought for the removal of the CHRAJ boss, stated that Ms Lauretta Lamptey paid close to $5,000 monthly rent on her AU Village apartment for 33 months while over GHS180, 000 was being spent to renovate her official bungalow and her hotel bills, all at the expense of the state.

 With the position of the Commissioner of CHRAJ being equal to that of a judge of the Court of Appeal, the procedure for Ms Lamptey's removal from office can only start with credible evidence of corruption and abuse of office from the Chief Justice's investigations.

Article 146 (3) of the 1992 Constitution states: “If the President receives a petition for the removal of a Justice of a Superior Court other than the Chief Justice or for the removal of the chairman of a regional tribunal, he shall refer the petition to the Chief Justice, who shall determine whether there is a prima facie case.”

 Other members of the committee are Mr Justice A.A. Benin, a Supreme Court judge; Ms Justice Mariama Owusu, a Court of Appeal judge; Mr Edwin P.D. Barnes, a former Chief Director of the Ministry of the Interior, and Brigadier-General Fuseini Iddrisu.
