About 180 officials of the Judicial Service have been caught on camera taking bribes and extorting money from litigants in a secret video recorded by Anas.

Thirty-four of the suspected culprits are said to be judges at the High, the Circuit and the District courts.

Some of the culprits have also been linked to sex scandals in a three-hour edited video emanating from a two-year investigation into corrupt practices in the Judicial Service.

Trending Information gathered indicates that Anas is under intense pressure not to air the video as planned.

Those against the airing of the video are of the view that it will embarrass and cripple the judicial system, while those in support hold the position that it would rather weed out the bad lots and serve as a deterrent to anyone who intends to engage in corrupt practices in the service.

But according to the astute lawyer speaking on Starr FM, "I was invited to talk about the oil industry and I don't know too much about the judges scandal."

Meanwhile, the twenty-two magistrate suspended by the judicial council have denied allegations of corruption against them.
