Security analyst, Dr Emmanuel Kwesi Aning is demanding a review of all cases handled by the judges implicated in the recent exposé by ace investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

“It is contingent upon those who have seen the video and her lordship the chief justice and the president to quickly come out with a set of statements about the way forward… Every single case that has passed through the hands of these individuals must be recalled, the state must pay for the cases to be re-examined and for those who feel they need redress for compensation to be paid quickly,” the Head of Research at the Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Center said on

The Judges have been captured on tape in discussion with suspects or assigns of suspects on how to compromise the cases before their respective courts.

Some of the culprits have also been linked to sex scandals in the three-hour edited video emanating from a two-year investigation into corrupt practices in the Judicial Service.

Reports suggest that two of them have in a panic-reaction, tendered their resignation.

One judge has suffered mild stroke and another hospitalized at Nyaho clinic after news of their involvement in a corruption scandal broke.

22 judges implicated in the scandal have been suspended by the Judicial Council while 12 High Court judges under investigation.

Meanwhile, private legal practitioner, Dr Maurice Ampaw is asking the Chief Justice, Georgina Theodora Woode to resign ‘honourably’.

According to him, the office of the Chief Justice has failed in dealing with corruption in the judiciary.
