Nana Addo Suspends Judges Accused of Corruption
The President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has suspended four high court judges on account of ataped video by Anas Aremeyaw Anas who documented the alleged acts of corruption and bribery by the judges.
According to a statement signed by the Director of Communication for the Jubilee House, Eugene Arhin, the judges are Mr. Justice Uuter Paul Dery, Mr. Justice Mustapha Logoh, Mr. Justice Gilbert Ayisi Addo and Mr. Justice Charles Quist.
“The suspension follows the establishment of a prima facie case against the four Justices, by the Committee set up by the Chief Justice to investigate alleged acts of bribery and corruption against certain persons, including the four Justices, as contained in the 29th August, 2015 petition of Mr. Anas Aremeyaw Anas,” the statement said.
The President who was adviced by the judicial council has informed the four about the decision by letter dated Tuesday, 8th May, 2018.
The accused are in court challenging the decision to step aside over the allegations.
Investigative journalist Anas captured 32 persons including judges and judicial service staff in a bribery syndicate to throw away cases.
The documentary titled “Ghana in the Eyes of God” exposed the corruption in the judicial system and 24 judges have since been sacked.
