Speaking on Adom FM’s Kaseibo Is Tasty, Lawyer Maurice Ampaw remarked that the office of the Chief Justice has failed in dealing with corruption in the judiciary.

“In advanced countries, when there is so much scandal in your institution, what you do is to honourably resign, hence the Chief Justice must do the honourable thing and resign. The judges are under her and she therefore takes responsibilities for their actions and inactions, so she must take blame for this as well,” he said.
