A law lecturer, Dr. Maurice Ampa, has explained that the teachers who were sacked by the Ghana Education Service (GES) for sexual misconduct or immoral act with their students can fight their dismissal in court.
The teachers, about 10 in number, who were dismissed for various misconducts are:
Mr. Vincent Nii Amah Otoo of St. Francis SHTS, Akim Oda,
Mr. Lester Ansah Djan, Benkum SHS, Larteh – Akuapem,
Mr. Adjetey Anum James, Okumaning Ugars Basic, Okumaning Eastern Region, among others.
Ampaw has dared the affected teachers who feel they’ve been hard done by the GES and their rights trampled upon to proceed to court to seek redress.
The law teacheris quoted by kasapafmonline as saying: “Which of the teacher can dare go to court to challenge his dismissal? None of them can say he’s been treated unfairly, administratively.
No lawyer worth his salt who knows the law, respects him or herself and is disciplined will ever tolerate such nonsense suit. We say he who comes to equity must come with clean hands."
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the Service has sacked 10 teachers under their watch for various offenses including sexual misconduct and stealing in their respective schools.
Six of the teachers were found guilty of sexual misconduct while four others were found guilty of stealing and one other, found guilty of defilement by an investigative committee set up by the Education Service and convicted by a court.
