The 2021 Auditor-General’s report has uncovered a missing vehicle at the Koforidua branch of the Commission for Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ).

The report asked the Commissioner of CHRAJ, Mr. Joseph Whittal, to ensure that the Eastern Regional Director, Mr. Stephen Okpoti Mensah pays for the cost of the vehicle.

“The matter had since been reported to the Police. We recommended that the Commissioner of CHRAJ should ensure that the Regional Director (Mr. Stephen Okpoti Mensah) pay for the cost of the vehicle.”
