According to statistics, Ghana is noted to be one of the most corrupt countries in the world. The Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) seems to be working hard to turn that narrative around. However, they have registered their displeasure with the attitude of Ghanaians when it comes to reporting instances of corruption.
Central Regional Director of CHRAJ, Mr. Theophelus Tetteh Tuwor in an interview with the Ghana News Agency(GNA) addressed the misconception that no action is taken against perpetrators of justice when such reports are made.
“When reporting on issues of human rights and administrative justice, you need an identifiable complainant but for anti-corruption, you only give us a lead. Unfortunately, that is where the cases are not coming,” he complained.
“Normally, people have this perception that when they report, nothing will happen or they will be victimized,” the Regional Director revealed.
Mr. Tuwor guaranteed Ghanaians that the Whistle Blower’s Act caters for their safety and security. He also promised to ensure accountability on the part of the CHRAJ.
