The committee set up by the Chief Justice Georgina Wood is made up of two justices of the Supreme Court, an Appeal Court judge and two other members whose appointment was based on the advice of the Council of State.

President John Dramani Mahama on the advice of the Judicial Council and pursuant to Article 146 (10) (b) of the 1992 Constitution of Ghana, suspended from office, Ms. Lamptey following the establishment of a prima facie case against her.

This was after a member of the New Patriotic Party, Richard Nyamah and Member of Parliament for Nsawam Adoagyir Anoh Dompreh petitioned the President to initiate processes to remove the CHRAJ boss for spending about $180,000 on rent.

In August last year, Ms Lamptey moved into a hotel after her US$5,500 monthly rent for the apartment, including utility bills, at the AU Village expired.

Lamptey, last year was payingUS$456 a day for her hotel accommodation. In total, about GH¢161,302.5 was spent on Lamptey’s stay in the hotel between August and November 2014.

Her official residence, which was previously occupied by her predecessor Justice Francis Emile Short, was at the time being redesigned with several variations at her instance, all at a cost of GH¢182,000.
