Judges deserve fair investigation and trial - Prez Mahama

According to President Mahama, the judges who have been implicated in the scandal must be given fair trial

 

President John Mahama has indicated that the indicted judges implicated in the Anas Aremeyaw Anas' expose must be given a fair investigation and trial.

According to him, "Such persons should be subjected to what they, perhaps, denied others: a fair investigation and a fair trial. Sometimes the principles are to be re-learned the hard way, because justice should always be served."

The President, in a Facebook post stated that, "We must also understand that this is a problem of some people who may or may not be guilty: it’s for the investigators and the judges to decide. However, this is not a problem of our judicial system as a whole."

Below is the statement posted by President John Mahama:

However, this is not a problem of our judicial system as a whole. This is not something to make us lose our faith in the judicial system. On the contrary, the investigations that began these days prove beyond doubt that our justice system is intact and working, served by many people with integrity and determination."
