South Dayi MP, Rockson-Nelson Dafeamekpor, has written to the Chief Justice demanding full disclosure of the outcome of a probe into the unlawful admission of over 200 students into the Ghana School of Law last year.

The MP says it has come to his attention that a fact-finding committee was set up by the General Legal Council (GLC), chaired by the Chief Justice, Kwasi Anin-Yeboah to investigate the matter.

The committee was tasked to probe circumstances leading to the unlawful admission.

Admission into the only school running the professional law programme remains a contentious matter as every year, thousands of students fail the entrance examination. This has resulted in calls for investigations.

This year, only 790 out of more than 2,000 students who wrote the exam gained admission into the Ghana School of Law.

MrDafeamekpor, in the letter to the Council, said some students who took the exam last year and should not have been admitted were nonetheless, admitted.

The MP said he is aware that the outgoing President of the Ghana Bar Association (GBA), Anthony Forson Jnr, chaired the committee tasked to investigate the matter.

The committee is said to have queried and received responses from the Acting Director of the school, the Registrar and the Deputy Registrar.

The MP wants all these documents made available to him, arguing that Ghana’s constitution and the Right to Information law allow him to access these documents.

He wants these documents made available to him in seven days.
