Chief Justice Proposes Ambulance Case Judge, 4 Others For Nomination To Supreme Court



In a significant judicial development, Chief Justice Gertrude Torkornoo has formally requested President Akufo-Addo to nominate five distinguished judges to the Supreme Court. This move aims to bolster the nation’s highest court with esteemed legal minds, ensuring the continued delivery of justice at the highest level.

Among the nominated judges is Justice Afia Serwaa Asare Botchwey, currently presiding over the high-profile Ato Forson trial. Her inclusion reflects her judicial acumen and experience in handling complex cases.

The additional nominees include:

  • Justice Afia Asare Botwe
  • Justice Cyra Pamela Koranteng
  • Justice Edward Amoako Asante
  • Justice Eric Kyei Baffour
  • Justice Angelina Mensah Homiah

In a detailed letter dated May 30, Chief Justice Torkornoo highlighted Justice Edward Amoako Asante’s notable service. His term at the ECOWAS court concluded on July 31, 2022. Due to the geopolitical changes following the withdrawal of Mali, Guinea, and Burkina Faso from the community, Justice Asante was requested to remain at his post. His current tenure is anticipated to end in 2026 or potentially earlier, at which point he is expected to return to Ghana’s Judiciary.
