Premiere judges’ bribery video now – AFAG demands

The Alliance for Accountable Governance (AFAG) has challenged investigate journalist, Anas Aremyaw Anas and his team, to make public, the video involving the bribery scandal in the judiciary. AFAG maintains that, failure to show the video would be an indictment on the credibility of Anas and his team.

“…It is an indictment on the Tiger Eye team if all except one of their painstaking investigations is not made available to the public.”

The pressure group in a statement also called for a “public enquiry other than in camera hearing,” on the matter.

“The Tiger team must know that, their integrity is at stake especially where along the line a judge or group of judges try to undermine the authenticity of their finding through their lawyers. Besides, the Tiger team may be feeding into the general perception of some politicians trying to manipulate them to prevent the premiere of the videos, and possibly, insulate some of the judges from the consequences of their actions.”

AFAG suggested that making the video public will allow for informed discussions to be made on the scandal.
“AFAG has been unable to speak critically about this scandal because of the lack of hard facts. This notwithstanding, we are happy to commend if true, the judges who refused to be bribed but on what basis.”
The Judicial Council, following an exposé by Anas suspended 22 out of 34 judges caught on camera taking bribes and also tasked a five-member committee to investigate the matter.
Anas Aremeyaw has set September 22nd and 23rd to premiere the video at the Accra International Conference Centre.
