Mon, 8 Jun 2020 Source: 3 News

The Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice has found the Electoral Commission chairperson, Jean Mensa guilty of failing to declare her assets when she assumed office as required by law.

The Alliance for Social Equity and Accountability (ASEPA) petitioned the Commission to investigate Jean Mensa for not disclosing her assets in accordance with Article 286 of the Constitution.

CHRAJ’s findings established that “At the end of the preliminary investigations, the Commission finds as a fact that as at the date the complaint was received by the Commission, the Respondent had not submitted her Assets Declaration Forms to the Auditor-General as required by law.”

It, however, noted that the EC boss later declared her assets and liabilities to the Auditor-General on the 17th of February 2020.

“We further find that having taken steps to declare her assets and liabilities to the Auditor-General on 17 February 2020 in the course of this investigation, the Respondent has now complied with Article 286 of the Constitution.”
