Former President, Jerry Rawlings has said he is saddened by revelations that several members of the judiciary have been implicated in a massive bribery scandal. He said this on the back of 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.

Former President Rawlings, in a statement has however urged media and members of the public to be circumspect in handling the scandal.

I feel genuinely sad about it. I guess it shows that many are just as vulnerable as many others. Times are really hard and there is no doubt some would have done it out of greed like some of our politicians, businessmen and so-called men of God, and others to profit from politics by releasing some armed robbers  and criminals back unto our streets”, the statement said.

It is important however, that the relevant institutions and authorities take the necessary steps to investigate fully these revelations and deal appropriately with the guilty culprits. The media and the general public should exercise a lot of circumspection and restraint so we do not end up bringing the reputation of many members of the judiciary who have their integrity intact into disrepute”, the statement added.
