SERAP urges CJN to review composition of Justice Salami committee on corruption

Human rights group, Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project, SERAP, wants a review of the membership of the committee set up to monitor high-profile corruption cases in Nigerian courts.

The 15-member committee was set up by Nigeria’s Chief Justice, headed by a retired President of the Court of Appeal, and has state chief judges and private lawyers as members.

SERAP says the inclusion of some of the lawyers puts a question mark on their independence, since they are defence counsel in some of the cases the committee will be monitoring.

The committee was set up as part of measures to address the delay in the trial of high-profile corruption cases.
