Law Society of Ghana defends Judges over auctioned vehicles

The Law Society of Ghana (LSG) has condemned the criticisms on some Judges who benefitted from the auctioning of some state vehicles.

The 2021 Auditor-General’s report revealed that the Judicial Service in 2021 auctioned some 19 official vehicles to some Judges without approval from the Finance ministry.

According to the Auditor-General, examination of records of the Transport Unit for 2021 revealed that “19 official vehicles were auctioned by the Service for GH¢1,023,507.96 without approval from the Minister of Finance.”

This was captured in paragraph 739 of the report which has been submitted to Parliament by the Auditor-General, Mr Johnson Asiedu.

But reacting to the development, the LSG said the said Judges who benefitted from the auction sales did nothing wrong.

A statement signed by the acting General Secretary of LSG, Sam Atukwei Quaye, indicated that the auction  was legitimate .
