CHRAJ Roars Over M&J Bribery Scandal

The Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) has vowed to resist efforts aimed at blocking its investigations into rulings by a London Court that some officials in the Atta Mills-led Government had received bribes amounting to £470,000 from Mabey & Johnson; a bridge-constructing firm in the UK, so the company could win contracts in Ghana.

CHRAJ has called the bluff of the said officials and threatened to drag them to court if they continue to snub requests from the Commission that they should submit written responses to the bribery allegations leveled against them.

DAILY GUIDE gathered that CHRAJ, in its quest to get to the bottom of the matter, is not finding it easy with the Ministry of Justice and the Attorney-General’s Department  and has therefore written to the London Serious Fraud Office as well as the UK office of Mabey & Johnson, requesting for further information on the matter.

According to Emile Short, Commissioner of CHRAJ, his outfit had written to the named government officials and given them a two-week ultimatum within which they are to present their written responses to the Commission.
