The petition, lodged by former Special Prosecutor Martin Amidu, urges the President to dismiss Agyebeng and is dated April 30, 2024.

It cites procurement irregularities in the acquisition of vehicles for the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) and accuses Agyebeng of misconduct involving judges and the administration of justice.

In a letter dated Thursday, May 16, the Chief Justice requested Agyebeng’s comments to determine if a prima facie case has been established.

“This is to forward to you a copy of the petition dated 30th April 2024 sent to the Office of the President which was forwarded to the Office of the Honourable Lady Chief Justice on 6th May 2024. Kindly provide your comments on the matters raised to enable the Honourable Chief Justice to determine if a prima facie case has been made out.”
