Lawyers of some of the justices implicated in the latest judicial scandal are pushing for the screening of the video to be halted.

Titled ‘Ghana in the Eyes of God – Epic of Injustice’, the investigative piece is scheduled to be premiered at the Accra International Conference Centre on September 22 and 23, 2015.

Already, one of the indicted judges, Justice Paul Uuter Dery, after suing the producers of the video, Tiger Eye P I, has filed another suit to stop the premiering of the video at the Accra International Conference Centre.

The suit is against the Director of Estates and General Services at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Chief Director of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Manager of the Accra International Conference Centre and the Attorney General.

According to lawyer of four of the accused judges, Egbert Faibille Jnr, screening the video will be prejudicial.

“We went to watch the movie… From what I have seen, certain considerations ought to be recognized in portions of what took place behind or around them which had been taken off. The video should not be a conclusive basis for finding anybody guilty until due process is followed. There are certain sensibilities… At least I saw one child in the video. Are you going to show a child to the world because a parent was engaged in some discussions with somebody? We are talking about permanent records and I think that the frenzy should come down,” he told Starr News.
