Judicial Service breaks silence on residence of Justice Samuel Marful-Sau 

Story: News Desk 

The Judicial Service of Ghana has denied reports of selling government property that was previously occupied by Supreme Court judge, Justice Samuel Marful-Sau.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, January 16, the Judicial Service insisted that the allegations are baseless and should not be tolerated.

The Service clarified that it received a letter from the Ministry of Works and Housing on December 28, 2022, expressing a desire to implement a Government Redevelopment Scheme in Roman Ridge.

According to the statement, two properties, previously occupied by the late Justice Samuel Marful-Sau and His Lordship Justice Victor Ofoe, were affected by the redevelopment.

The Judicial Service said these properties were allocated to them by the Ministry of Works and Housing.

It further explained that four housing units were designated for use by Superior Court Judges after the completion of the redevelopment project.

“The Judicial Service accepted the offer, recognising the serious accommodation deficit faced by the Judiciary, whilst taking into consideration the security and safety requirements of Judges, and also convinced that the project will be beneficial to the Judicial Service.”

“Following a series of meetings between representatives of the Government, Judicial Service and the Ministry of Works and Housing regarding the two (2) properties mentioned above, an agreement dated 17th February 2023 was entered into between the Judicial Service and the Ministry of Works and Housing to proceed with the project. Developments on the said land are therefore covered by an agreement concluded between the Judicial Service and the Ministry of Works and Housing,” an excerpt of the release stated.

This comes in response to allegations suggesting that the Judicial Service of Ghana had been involved in the sale of the late Justice Marful-Sau’s residence.
