A 44-paged report of investigations into the bribery scandal that hit the Appointments Committee of Parliament will be laid before the House today.

Director of Public Affairs at Ghana’s Parliament Kate Addo told Kasapa FM that the report is ready and would be laid by the Joe Ghartey committee before parliament for consideration.

“The full report would be read by the Chairman of the Committee, Joe Ghartey and various media Houses that wish to make a live coverage have the liberty to do so. This is at the instance of the Chairman of the committee. Once the report has been laid then the regular processes in parliament will take it course, because there would be recommendations in the report.” she told sit-in host Kwaku Owusu Adjei on Anopa Kasapa on Kasapa 102.5 FM Wednesday.

The chairman of the committee, Joe Ghartey, gave an indication last Friday the committee will lay its report on Wednesday and “it was contained in the business statement that was read on the floor on Friday [March 24, 2017].”
