Information gathered indicated that the Judicial of Council of Ghana is locked in a crunch meeting over the investigative work done by ace investigative Journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas that is said to have exposed massive rot in the judicial sector.
Sources say the meeting is being convened to strategize on how the Council will deal with the damning outcome of the investigative piece when the content is made available to the public in the coming days.
The judiciary has over the years been perceived to be one of the most corrupt bodies and has come under public attack and condemnation for the high level of corruption in the judicial system.
The piece when done, will sum up the Journalist?s frustration over the past two years, persons familiar with it say.
?In the history of this country, we?ve never had such a big story before because it?s going to shake the very foundation of Ghana?s democracy. I?m very disappointed but it?s a story that ought to be told,? Anas disclosed to Citi fm.
Anas uncovers 34 Judges in corruption scandal Thirty-four Ghanaian judges face impeachment in the coming weeks as an expos? about to hit Ghana entangles them in a damning corruption scandal.
According to the information the high profile judges including, Justice John Ajet-Nassam, a High Court Judge, who freed Alfred Agbesi Woyome in the controversial GHC51 million judgment debt scandal, have been videotaped and audio
recorded in separate conversations with suspects or persons acting as agents of suspects before them to compromise big cases.
The over six months? painstaking investigations by ace investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas in collaboration with StarrFMonline.com will be released in full in the coming weeks, ahead of a premiere at the Accra International
In what has already been described as the ?biggest scandal ever to hit Ghana?s judicial service,? Anas has served notice the video and other hardcore evidence will shake the ?democratic foundation of Ghana.?
A video which will be released on starrFMonline.com this week, and on 22nd September at the International Conference Centre shows money changing hands as one could hear the judges including, a Human Rights Court judge Kofi Essel Mensah, Charles Quist (a High Court Judge) allegedly making demands to throw away cases which
include robbery,murder and corruption among others.
?What if I release him (armed robbery suspect) on Friday and I don?tnsee you again?? Quist was heard on tape allegedly quizzing someone. ?Oh I will get him off. I will get him off the hook on Friday but everything will depend on you,? he stressed in the conversation. Did Justices Mensah, Quist, Ajet-Nassam and the 31 other judges eventually succumb to the inducement to free their suspects?
The public is in high expectation for the release of the video.
