The 22 lower court judges who have been implicated in the Anas’ corruption exposé have come out strongly to deny the accusations. This was when some of them appeared before the investigative committee set up by the Chief Justice, Georgina Theodora Wood to investigate the matter. Some of the judges who were suspended after they were captured in the video taking bribes to influence judgements have challenged the evidence and have asked the investigative committee to cross-examine Anas.

Meanwhile, some critics have accused Anas of using unfair tactics to trap people in his investigative pieces. The judicial council had earlier on rejected the letters of some indicted judges who tried to tender in their resignation and hand over official vehicles in a bid to avoid embarrassment.

Pressure is also mounting on Anas not to make the video public. According to a former president of the Ghana Bar Association, Sam Okudzeto, making the videos public will be unfair as investigations into the case have not been completed yet. Former CHRAJ Boss, Justice Emile Short has also asked the public to be circumspect in making any hasty generalisation about the judicial scandal.

The judges will however, later have a view of their acts on camera.
