Thirty-four of the suspected culprits are said to be judges at the High, the Circuit and the District courts
Mr. Tsatsu Tsikata, former Chief Executive of the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC), has stated that he don't know much about the expose’ by ace journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas on the massive bribery scandal in the judiciary.
About 180 officials of the Judicial Service have been caught on camera taking bribes and extorting money from litigants in a secret video recorded by Anas.
Thirty-four of the suspected culprits are said to be judges at the High, the Circuit and the District courts.
Some of the culprits have also been linked to sex scandals in a three-hour edited video emanating from a two-year investigation into corrupt practices in the Judicial Service.
Trending Information gathered indicates that Anas is under intense pressure not to air the video as planned.
Those against the airing of the video are of the view that it will embarrass and cripple the judicial system, while those in support hold the position that it would rather weed out the bad lots and serve as a deterrent to anyone who intends to engage in corrupt practices in the service.
But according to the astute lawyer speaking on Starr FM, "I was invited to talk about the oil industry and I don't know too much about the judges scandal."
Meanwhile, the twenty-two magistrate suspended by the judicial council have denied allegations of corruption against them.
At the first sitting of the committee set up by the chief justice the lower court judges requested to see the video recordings Anas claims to have.
They also want Anas Aremeyaw Anas to be present at every sitting so they can cross examine him.
The judges were suspended after a petition by Anas to the Chief Justices requesting that a prima facie case be established against the judges.
