Chief Justice Mrs. Georgina Theodora Wood says in the wake of the massive corruption scandal that has hit the Judiciary, its fidelity to the rule of law remains intact.

According to her, the judiciary in Ghana is “shock-resistant and certainly resilient”, adding that the scandal is an opportunity to cleanse the institution.

The past week has witnessed public attacks on the Judiciary after Ace investigative Journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas in an exposé established that some 34 Judges were neck deep in corrupt practices in the discharge of their work.

Consequently the Judicial Council has instituted investigations into the scandal.

In an address at the ongoing Ghana Bar Association conference in the Ashante Regional capital, Kumasi Her Lordship Theodora Woode, promised to “swiftly and decisively apply appropriate sanctions” if judges implicated in a bribery scandal are found guilty.

She further noted that the allegations against the judges have left a “heavy dark shadow on the legal community” and “deepened long held suspicions” about the public’s view of corruption in the judiciary.

The C.J noted that her administration remained committed to ruthlessly dealing with corruption in the judiciary to consolidate the efforts of the keen on protecting the integrity of the judiciary.

The implicated judges will “face the wrath of the law and bear the full force of blind justice that knows no favouritism” Georgina Wood insisted.
