A High Court judge in the Eastern Regional Capital of Koforidua has sent a strong signal to litigants and accused persons not to make any overtures aimed at bribing her.

In a curious notice posted on the notice board of the Koforidua High Court, the judge, Mrs Justice Gifty Dekyem gave the warning on what appears to be directed at a party to a suit, not to even attempt to bribe her.

Mrs Justice Gifty Dekyem presides over the Koforidua High Court 3.

The notice read:

"To whom it may concern.

"Please take note that:

“1. I do not accept bribes and gifts.
