The management of the Ghana School of Law has constituted a committee to investigate alleged financial impropriety within the Student Representative Council (SRC) of the school.

This follows several allegations of conflict of interest, impropriety, and financial mismanagement leveled against the SRC President, Wonder Victor Kutor.

The management in a press release dated April 12, 2022, stated that it would probe the issues rigorously as it does not condone such actions.

The committee comprises three members; namely Mrs. Victoria Barth, Head of Faculty and Lecturer, Advocacy and Legal Ethics Ghana School of Law, Mr. Moses Ansah-Barnor Ankrah Esq, Deputy Director of Finance (Budget) Judicial Service of Ghana, and Mrs. Justice Anthony Aduhene-Benieh (C/Supt RTD).

These members are to conduct thorough investigations into the substantive matter and anything concerning the SRC and submit findings and recommendations to the management for implementation.

Students have however been asked to assist with any information that is imperative to the investigations.

“Students with relevant information and evidence concerning the matters under reference are encouraged to submit the same in writing to the Deputy Registrar. Electronic copies of the hard documents can be submitted to the email depregistar@gslaw.edu.gh not later than 25th April 2022.”

Background

The SRC President of the school has, among other things, been accused of buying a car for the SRC from his company, and another one for his personal use under questionable circumstances.

Mr. Wonder Victor Kutor is also said to be running an SRC-owned Mobile Money business with his company name and diverting proceeds from the business for his own personal use.

The Executive Council of the SRC queried the president but said they are not convinced with his answers, hence has constituted a committee to investigate the matter.

He was on April 17, 2022, interdicted, one which he regards as unconstitutional.

“Management has indicated that they are investigating the matter. The matter is also before the SRC Supreme Court. I was elected by the students of the Ghana School of Law, so how can the Secretary say that they have interdicted the President, which is the highest position of the SRC. It is unconstitutional. It is ridiculous that at the Ghana School of Law, where we studied law, all these trivialities are going on. The constitution is clear on the process of removing the President from office, it is done by the [SRC] Supreme Court.”

He has so far denied the allegations leveled against him.
