Dismissed Judge Denies Allegation of Misconduct

Allegations of misconduct leading to the dismissal of Jasikan Circuit Court Judge Alfred Kwabena Asiedu have been refuted by the former jurist.

The Judicial Service terminated Justice Asiedu’s position following an investigation into inappropriate conduct during a divorce case he presided over. In response to the claims made by petitioner Singari Diana Sadia, Justice Asiedu vehemently denied any wrongdoing, labelling the accusations as a product of the petitioner’s “illusioned imagination.” 

The Chief Justice, Her Ladyship Justice Gertrude Torkornoo, conveyed the dismissal in a letter, prompting the judge to contest the allegations in a written response to the Judicial Service. Justice Asiedu, in his letter, asserted, “Every material allegation made in the petition is false and clearly made out of the figment of the illusioned imagination of the petitioner.”

He further denied soliciting money from Sadia and alleged that a staff member from the Dambai District Court assisted in formulating the petition against him.

The dismissed judge claimed to have conducted his own investigation, revealing that the petitioner received aid from a Dambai District Court staff member. 

He expressed concern that the Complaint Unit staff played a role in facilitating the petition against him.
