The Vetting Committee of Parliament, chaired by Mr Edward Doe Adjaho, First Deputy Speaker, yesterday vetted two new nominees appointed by President John Evans Atta Mills, for various deputy ministerial positions.
They are Mr Anthony Gyambiby, Deputy Minister designate for Attorney General and Minister for Justice and Mr Kwadwo Owusu-Agyemang, deputy Minister designate for the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources.
Mr Anthony Gyambibi, who was the first to appear before the committee promised to work assiduously to end the government’s losing streak of high profile cases in court, adding that the recent losing streak of high profile cases could not be attributed to incompetence since there were enough experienced hands at the department.
He told the committee that when given the nod, he will focus on improving conditions within the AG’s department to attract experienced prosecutors, pointing out that due to the unattractive conditions of service at the department, lawyers were to forced to look elsewhere for attractive conditions.
The deputy Attorney General designate was also questioned by the committee on some high-profile cases he handled in 1989.
Mr Kwadwo Owusu-Agyemang, deputy Minister designate, on his part promised to work with his substantive minister to deal with the issue of illegal mining.
He also responded to some questions concerning his CV.
