Court dismisses injunction against CJ's committee

An Accra High Court presided over by Justice Gertrude Torkonoo on Tuesday dismissed an injunction application filed by some lower court judges cited in the Anas judicial corruption scandal, against the five-member committee investigating the matter.

The lower court judges in their suit argued that the investigative committee does not have the authority to sanction them, adding that it is only a court of competent jurisdiction that must try them before any sanction from the service.

The committee subsequently suspended its sitting pending the outcome of the suit.

The new ruling now empowers the committee to go ahead with its work.
