Investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas today has today returned to face the judicial committee looking into allegations of bribery and corruption leveled against some seven suspended High Court justices.

Anas Aremeyaw Anas is expected to come face to face with the judges and their lawyers as cross examination of the evidence brought by him would begin today after some weeks of adjournment of sittings by the committee.

The Chief Justice, her Ladyship Georgina Theodora Wood has set up a five -member committee chaired by Justice Sophia Akuffo of the Superior court to investigate the allegations.

Other members of the committee include Justice Samuel Marful-Sai, Justice Agnes Dodzie all of the appeal, Nii Otu Nartey and Kojo Osei Sarfo who are nominees of the council of state.

This would be the second committee set up by the Chief Justice after the Anas expose against the judges. Already, 22 judges of the circuit and magistrate courts are serving a suspension for similar acts.

A five member committee set up to look into the case of the 22 justices is on a one month break.

The Vice President, Paa Kwesi Amissah Arthur, acting in his capacity as the president of the republic and upon the advice of the Judicial Council, suspended 7 High Court justices after a prima facie case was established against them by the corruption video from Anas.
