The Ghana Police Service has said they will prosecute culprits involved in the latest revelations in which several members of the judiciary have been implicated in a massive bribery scandal. In a letter signed by the Director-General in-charge of the Public Affairs Department of the Ghana Police Service, DCOP David Ampah-Bennin, the police administration "has taken note of recent developments in the judicial service of the allegation of corruption against some judges and some judicial staff, and is in touch with the Attorney General's office on the matter".

The statement follows the latest expose' on judiciary which will soon be released by investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas. Thirty judges and about a 100 court officials have been captured in a yet-to-be released video receiving bribes or engaged in corrupt activities to influence justice.

Director of Public Relations of the Ghana Police Service, Superintendent Cephas Arthur has said police intervention into the scandal is very crucial.

"We have everything to do with this. If anything adverse is found against persons that have been named, definitely it will also border on criminality because it is an allegation of corruption and corruption is a matter of criminality and so the police must definitely come in", he said on Accra-based Citi FM.

Meanwhile, 22 judges who were cited in the judicial corruption scandal have since been suspended by the Judicial Council. However, 14 judges have filed a suit at the Fast Track High Court challenging their suspension by the Judicial Council.

Three judges have been acquitted and discharged on the basis of mistaken identity in the ongoing judicial corruption scandal revelation by Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

The plaintiffs contend that the processes leading to their suspension were unfair.
