‘Corruption is an indictment on our profession’ – AG

Miss Gloria Afua Akuffo, the Attorney General and Minister of Justice, has expressed deep regret about the increasing perception of corruption in the legal profession.

“Corruption is an indictment on our profession'” she said and called on the GBA to act swiftly in addressing the menace which had become the bane of national development.

She was speaking at the the opening session of the Annual General Conference of the Ghana Bar Association (GBA), underway in Sunyani under the theme: “Saving the Future Generation from the Scourge of Corruption and Environmental Degradation – The Role of the Legal Profession”.

Describing corruption as the most organised form of crime in the country, Miss Akuffo said the fight against the menace required collective approach among all stakeholders.

She said it was against this background that the government was pursuing the 10-year Anti-Corruption Campaign and asked the GBA to support the course.

Miss Akuffo underscored the importance for the GBA to strengthen its internal security control mechanisms to reduce the opportunities for corruption.

She called on the media, civil society organisations, law enforcement and security agencies to also support the fight against the practice.
