Court orders CHRAJ to investigate Freddy Blay's private residence
An Accra High Court has directed the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) to investigate the private residence of the Chairman of New Patriotic Party (NPP), Freddie Blay and serve him the complaint.
The Chairman of the NPP was expected to appear before the High Court to face committal proceedings for contempt of court.
But addressing the court Friday, Lawyer from CHRAJ, Beta Doku told the Court they have tried several attempts to serve him but all proved futile.
The proceedings concern his failure to respond to several requests from the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ), to provide it with information about the 275 buses he donated to his party’s constituencies ahead of the NPP delegates conference in 2018.
According to the motion, on July 6, 2018, CHRAJ received a complaint from the Coalition of Social Justice, requesting the commission to investigate Mr. Blay for corruption in respect of his role in the purchase of the buses.
The letter showed that Mr. Blay, had received the motion but failed, refused and or neglected to oblige the commission with his comments as requested.
