FULL TEXT: Sex, cattle, arrest – The 2-page petition that led to dismissal of judge


The Chief Justice, Gertrude Sackey Torkornoo, through a letter dated November 13, 2023, announced the dismissal of His Honour Alfred Kwabena Asiedu, as a Circuit Court judge for Jasikan.

The CJ stated that the dismissal was based on a Judicial Council decision after a petition against the judge run its full course.

A disciplinary committee report, the letter noted, had established allegations of abuse of power, malicious prosecution and impropriety against the judge. “I write with reference to the petition of abuse of power, sexual exploitation, malicious prosecution and impropriety against you, received from one Singari Diana Sadia, dated 16th January 2023.

“In line with the Disciplinary Procedures of the Service, you were invited to appear before the Disciplinary Committee of the Judicial Council, which had been mandated to investigate the allegations against you,” the letter read in part. A copy of the original petition as filed by the petitioner has since been published by Accra-based Citi FM.

It contained among other allegations, the judge having had sex with the petitioner, contracted her to buy cattle on his behalf, their relationship going sour at a point and in the process of retrieving his cattle, the judge causing her arrest along with another person.
