President John Mahama has sworn in five new justices to the Court of Appeal, with a call on them to dispense justice fairly.
“As justices of the Superior Court you are required to be sober, in terms of temperaments and delivery of justice. Your first obligation is to dispense justice fairly to all persons,” the President said.
“Ghana has become a leading destination for investment. One of the attractions for this said to be the quality of our judicial system. While confidence in our judiciary is high, there are few instances where foreign investors or business people have complained of a manipulation of our security and justice system by locals who either have defrauded them or have litigation with them.
“It is my hope that we will pay attention to these in order that we continue to maintain Ghana as an attractive investment destination,” he added.
The justices sworn in are: Justice Lawrence Mensah, Justice Henry Kwofie, Justice Angelina Domakyaareh, Justice Mabel Agyemang and Justice Gbiel Suurbaareh.
