Lauretta had been accused August 2014 of expending 4,200 U.S dollars monthly on hotel accommodation while her official residence was under renovation.

She was said to have stayed in the hotel for 33 months until the revelation by state-owned Daily Graphic newspaper.

Following a petition submitted against Lamptey, the committee set up by the Chief Justice concluded that the former CHRAJ boss was no more fit to hold the position of Commissioner for Human Rights and Administrative Justice.

Various local media houses have quoted sources at the presidency confirming the dismissal, adding that the president had dispatched the dismissal letter on Wednesday. Enditem
