The Judicial Council has removed from office three more magistrates indicted in the recent corruption scandal.

A statement signed by the Judicial Secretary, Alex B. Poku-Acheampong said the three “have been removed from office without benefits following a resolution at its Emergency Meeting on Monday, December 7, 2015 on ground of stated misbehaviour under article 151(1) of the 1992 Constitution.”

Twenty out of the twenty one magistrates shown in the Anas exposé on bribery in the judiciary were last week removed from office.

The three more magistrates removed are: His Worship Kaakyire Atta Owusu, His Worship Isaac Amoah and His Worship Stephen Azuure.

The statement said the names of the three were left out "because letters informing them of the Judicial Council’s resolution to remove them from office had not reached them at the time the announcement was made.”

Mr. Kofi Kyere, who is a High Court Registrar has also been removed from office without benefit for also being indicted in the corruption scandal.

Meanwhile, disciplinary action has been taken against the under listed junior staff for their involvement in the scandal.

1. Peace Abuadzi – Circuit Court Registrar

2. Daniel Dzata – District Court Registrar

3. Elias Nkansah – Assistant Registrar

4. Eric Ayensu – Messenger

The Disciplinary Committee, however, did not establish any act of misconduct against Benjamin Agyepong, a driver of the service, who was also cited in the petition by Tiger Eye PI. His interdiction, according to the statement, has, therefore, been lifted with immediate effect.
