A Supreme Court judge, William Atuguba has lashed out at members of the Ghana Bar Association (GBA), describing them as partisan.

He said decades ago the “GBA was more politically colourless” but today’s lawyers seem to have lost what he described as “a very bold and courageous” stance “even under military governments.

“They spoke with closed ranks and I didn’t see any division and had a united and courageous front and they succeeded,” the no-nonsense judge opined at the 42nd week celebration of the University of Ghana Law School, Monday.

“At a certain stage the GBA went to the point of saying they would not comment on national issues and that was very negative and why should that be the case, but now they are beginning to speak again,” Atuguba said, adding they seem to be favouring one political party to another.

According to him, that was the “perception” he got form the media about the GBA and it seems to be a general concern.

“Look at the horizon of their expression on important national issues and see whether there have been uniformity or consistence,” Atuguba, who was the president of the 2012 election petition case, opined.
