Aspiring Parliamentary candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for the Ewutu Senya West Constituency, George Andah, says the eleven Judges who refused to be bribed by investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas while working on his latest piece, are worth celebrating.
Some 34 judges have so far been mentioned as characters in an upcoming video that captures them taking bribes in their line of duty.
Of the number, some have voluntarily returned their official vehicles while others have instantly become sick due to the shame and public mockery.
The investigative piece by Anas Aremeyaw Anas, is seeking to threaten the very sacrosanct nature of the judicial service.
In what is yet, the biggest and most revealing piece of work by the Journalist, the Judges, some of whom are seasoned and well respected, are seen accepting bribes to trade off their ethos.
The Chief Justice and Judicial Council have since taken over the matter and suspended 22 Circuit Judges and Magistrates until the final determination of the case by a five-member Disciplinary Committee.
Twelve High Court Judges are also being investigated.
Andah, in an interview with Fiifi Banson on Kasapa 102.3 FM Tuesday said:
“We need to celebrate the Judges who turned down or refuse to take bribes in their line of duty. Their good will and dedication to duty clearly demonstrates that all is not lost in this country. There is hope.”
