The Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) has released a report it compiled on the declaration of assets by a number of judges, including some Supreme Court judges currently sitting on the presidential election petition.

According to ASEPA, it has received CHRAJ’s Report on its investigations on Asset Declaration Charges brought against 10 Appeals Court Judges.

“Our legal team is still reviewing the Reports on these Judge, 6 reports on the Supreme Court Judges and 10 reports on the Appeals Court Judges,” ASEPA’s Executive Director, Mensa Thompson confirmed.

It adds that a report on over 30 High Court Judges in respect of the declaration of assets is still pending.

“We would put out an official statement on the reports as soon as the reviews are completed by our lawyers,” Mensa Thompson wrote.
