“The Anti-Corruption Mandates of the Commission on Human Right and Administrative Justice and the Serious Fraud Office: A Duplication of Functions?”

"In recognition of corruption as a major obstacle to development, Ghana has over the past 18 years of the current constitutional dispensation initiated some useful institutional reforms and created a number of new constitutional and statutory watchdog agencies with anti-corruption mandates. These agencies include the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice and the Serious Fraud Office (now transformed into the Economic and Organised Crime Office). The purpose of this paper is to examine the extent to which the anti-corruption mandates of these two institutions duplicate each other."
