Commenting on the latest bribery scandal that has hit Ghana’s judiciary, the member of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) stated that although uncovers by ace investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas lead to a reform in institutions caught in the act of corruption, the fear of being caught again is missing as the journalist moves to another institution. In effect, the canker still engulfs the institution.

“My focus really is on ‘what next?’ because, we don’t have an established system. So Anas goes to CEPS, he does what he wants to do, some people may get fired and then he moves to another place. You know that once Anas leaves, he is not likely to come back to that same institution. So can you tell me that CEPS has changed? The thing that Anas exposed is not happening anymore? It is the same with the cocoa sector and wherever he has being to. To me, that really is the difficulty. We know that our institutions are bad, there will be reforms, but the deterrent factor should be that you know you could be caught at any time,” he said on Citi FM’s The Big Issue.

“I don’t mean to sound political; but when Akufo Addo said that he wants to establish the Anas principle, what he meant was to let us have a body that does that. If I’m working at a government institution and I know that one or two people are going round trapping people and all that, it sends fear when you are approached,” he added.

An investigative piece by Anas Aremeyaw Anas has established complicity of some 180 officials of the Judicial Service caught on camera taking bribes and extorting money from litigants. Thirty-four (34) of the suspected culprits are said to be judges at the High, the Circuit and the District courts.

Prior to this, Anas and his team, after living in an orphanage with more than 100 children, at Awutu Bawjiase in the Central Region for six months, uncovered that it has been turned into a business venture by its Founder, Mrs Emma Boafo Yeboah, affectionately referred to as Auntie Emma or Mummy in the home.
