Justice Yaw Appau and Lawyer Gabriel Pwamang have been cleared by Parliament to the Supreme Court of Ghana
The Appointments Committee of Parliament has unanimously approved Gabriel Pwamang and Justice Yaw Appau to the Supreme Court.
He was approved after a former General Secretary of the People’s National Convention (PNC) at the General Legal Council was withdrawn.
A letter from the General Legal Council to Parliament said: “I have been directed by the Chairperson of the Disciplinary Committee of the General Council to inform you that the said complaint against Mr. Gabriel Pwamang has been withdrawn by the complainant madam Eva Oboshie.”
“There is therefore no petition pending before the Committee against Mr. Gabriel Pwamang,” the letter signed by the Disciplinary Committee’s secretary Bernard Bentil noted.
The Chief Justice Georgina Theodora Wood subsequently formed a Disciplinary Committee to investigate the matter.
It particularly lauded Justice Yaw Appau, an Appeals Court Judge for his courageousness in ruling over the Yaa Na, Sodom and Gomorrah and the Stadium disaster cases.
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 tasked 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.
