CJA Calls For Establishment Of Financial Tribunals To Check Corruption

The Committee for Joint Action, CJA, has condemned what it calls the imposition of hardship on the people of Ghana last year.

At a News Conference in Accra, a leading member of the group and Managing Editor of the Insight Newspaper, Kwesi Pratt, said despite all the efforts by the CJA for about eight years, the conditions of life of ordinary Ghanaians have not improved.

According to Mr Pratt, the CJA has over the eight years, insisted that public office holders have an obligation to work to make life better for the ordinary citizens, by protesting against high utility tariffs and petroleum price increase.

The Group also bemoaned the lack of efforts to set up the Financial Tribunal in accordance with provisions of the 1992 Constitution.
