The Attorney General has suffered another major defeat at the nation’s law courts.

The latest trouncing of the Attorney General was over the case in which two former top officials of the Ministry of Youth and Sports went to court to challenge their interdiction by the Civil Service for their alleged roles in the infamous Muntaka corruption scandal.

The Civil Service’s action was on grounds that Mr. Albert Ampong, a former Chief Director of the Sports Ministry, and Mr. Adim Odoom, former Chief Accountant of the same Ministry were interfering in ongoing investigations into allegations of financial impropriety against them.

But, in a landmark ruling delivered by the Human Rights Court this morning, trial Judge, Justice Paul Derry, quashed the interdiction of the two men and ordered the Civil Service to immediately reinstate them to their respective positions.

Since the scandal, Mr Ampong and Mr Odoom have been transferred from the Sports Ministry to the office of the head of Civil Service. Mr Dame told CitiNews he intends to immediately serve the notice of entry of judgment on the Attorney General to advice the Civil Service Council to take the necessary steps to reinstate his clients. Mr Dame told CitiNews he has not yet gotten any indication that the Attorney General intends to appeal today’s court ruling.
