News on Dr. Dominic Ayine has gone viral this week. Many news portals reported of the former deputy Attorney General being in trouble for some comments he made. In a letter dated 25th May, 2021, the Chief Justice reported to the General Legal Council and asked for an enquiry into certain comments made by Dr. Ayine.

Chief Justice Anin Yeboah, Justice Yaw Appau, Justice Dotse, Justice Paul Baffoe Bonnie will represent the Chairman, deputy and 2 senior justices. Others include Godfred Dame, the Attorney General, Alfred Tuah Yeboah, the deputy Attorney General designate, Justin Amenuvor, Raymond Atuguba (Dean of the University of Ghana Law Faculty), Anthony Forson (President of the Ghana Bar Association), Maxwell Opoku Agyemang and Christopher Archer.
