Another High Court judge cited in the judicial bribery scandal has filed a writ at the High Court challenging the legality of impeachment proceedings against him.

Justice Mohammed Habib Logoh cited Tiger Eye PI, the Chief Justice Georgina Theodora Wood and the Attorney-General, Marietta Brew Appiah Oppong as defendants in his suit.

Justice Logoh and 11 other High Court judges were captured on video allegedly taking bribes to influence their verdict on cases before them.

Investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas and Tiger Eye PI compiled what they say is evidence of bribery in the judiciary. He subsequently petitioned the President in respect of the 12 High Court judges and the Chief Justice in respect of some 22 lower court judges and about a hundred other judicial service staff.

Impeachment proceedings have been instituted against the High Court judges, two of whom went on retirement after the investigations were completed.

The remaining ten are mounting legal challenges against the proceedings, arguing they have been instituted in breach of the law.

Justice Habib Logoh is demanding a total of ten reliefs from the High Court. He wants:

1. A declaration that the purported audio-visual recordings and transcripts in which the Plaintiff was allegedly captured is unlawMl and the same 
amounts to entrapment;

from public screening of the said illegal audio-visual recordings;
