President John Mahama has appointed the Sole Commissioner, Justice Yaw Apau and a Lawyer at Centre for Public Interest Law (CEPIL), Gabriel Pwamang for seats on Ghana’s Supreme Court.

The nomination of Justices has been presented to members of parliament.

The two nominations came to Parliament on Tuesday and were read to members of Parliament by the Speaker, Edward Doe Adjaho.

The nominations are in line with the provisions of Article 144(2) of the 1992 Constitution. According to the President’s communication to the House, he made the nominations after consultations with both the Judicial Council and the Council State.

The Speaker of parliament, Doe Adjaho has however referred the nomination of the justices to the appointment committee of parliament.

The Committee will in the next few days meet to draw a programme for their vetting.

President Mahama on October 8, 2012 swore in Justice Appau to thoroughly investigate the judgment debts, procedures for negotiations, contracts, execution, monitoring and resolve disputes as well.

He was expected to make recommendations to prevent unnecessary  judgement debt payments to individuals and companies which has cost the country millions of Ghana Cedis.

His appointment came on the back of a series of payments to some individuals and institutions including businessman Alfred Woyome, Waterville Holdings and Isofotun SA.

Meanwhile, some government officials were also implicated in these payments.
