Rawlings: Let’s be circumspect in judges scandal

Former President, Flt Lt Jerry John Rawlings says he is saddened by the revelations that several members of the judiciary have been implicated in a bribery scandal.

He has however called for circumspection and tact in dealing with the matter, especially by the media and members of the public.

President Rawlings said in a statement that:

“I feel genuinely sad about it. I guess it shows some are just as vulnerable as most others. Times are really hard and there is no doubt some would have done it out of greed like some of our politicians, businessmen and so called men of God. And others to profit from politics by releasing armed robbers and other criminals back onto our streets.

“It is important, however, that the relevant institutions and authorities take the necessary steps to investigate fully these revelations and deal appropriately with the guilty culprits.

“The media and members of the general public should exercise a lot of circumspection and restraint so we do not end up bringing the reputation of many members of the judiciary – who have their integrity intact – into disrepute,” President Rawlings said.
