The Editor in chief of the Crusading Guide newspaper, Kweku Baako Junior has indicated that he is not worried about legal writs on the latest judicial scandal.

In the investigative piece by Anas Aremeyaw Anas, thirty-four judges at the country’s High Courts, the Circuit and District courts were captured on camera allegedly taking bribes from litigants whose cases come before them.

The exposé was premiered at AICC despite an application of interlocutory injunction served the Ministry of Foreign Affairs' property.

Lawyers of embattled high court judge, Justice Paul Uuter Dery after suing the producers of the video, filed a contempt suit against the management of the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC) for going ahead to show the video.

Justice Dery is reported to have also sued the Managing Director of Global Cinemas, Ernest Boateng, for contempt on the basis that the cinema has advertised its intent to air the judicial corruption exposé at his video center at Weija in Accra.

But speaking on Joy FM’s News File on Saturday, Mr Baako noted that the scare of contempt being used by some of the implicated judges is not enough to reduce the effect of the crimes they are alleged to have committed.

“Contempt phobia can’t stop the momentum that this Anas video has brought on the nation,” he said.

“I am not unduly worried at all about the legal writs, public viewing and all the controversies; they will eventually drive this country to a more qualitative way of resolving problems… The chief justice has initiated the process and I see it in my mind’s eye that a lot more will happen. Justice Derry and his friends are in court, it’s legitimate; they should be patient. The process maybe slow but we must be patient about it” he added.

Mr Baako stated that he foresees some of the indicted judges going to jail.

“And those who have been cited for contempt; assuming without admitting that there is a legitimate basis, and some of us end up in jail, I can see some of those judges joining them there,” he said.
