180 officials of the Judicial Service have been caught on camera taking bribes and extorting money from litigants.

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.

Speaking on Morning Starr on Starr FM on Wednesday morning, spokesperson of the Ghana Bar Association, Tony Forson described the scandal as shocking. He however indicated that the Association will take a decision after seeing the video.

“Unfortunately, not all of us have seen this video, we have just seen snippets… as an association, the decision we have taken is that the constitution makes provisions for the removal of superior court judges in Article 146 so as a body, we have decided that we will wait and allow the constitutional provisions run its course in order not to prejudice any person’s interest because this is a very serious matter,” he said.
