Justice Paul Dery, one of the High Court judges in the Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ corruption expose’ has petitioned the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) to withdraw the Best Journalist Award given to him over his investigative documentary into Judicial corruption in Ghana.

In a twelve-page petition Dery argued that because he is contesting Anas’ petition to get him out of office, it is not right for the GJA to award him based on a documentary which is still in contention.

“I am therefore by this letter drawing your attention to the consequences of the Award GJA gave to Anas Aremeyaw Anas whilst I give you and your Honourable Association the opportunity to rectify a blatant wrong that has been inflicted on the whole of the Ghanaian public by the conferment of the said award.”

Dery in his petition threatened to head to court if the GJA does not act immediately on what he described as a “blatant wrong.”

 

“Your response to my letter will determine my next line of action since I am determined to use all lawful and legal means at my disposal to ensure that the provisions of the 1992 Constitution are upheld and complied with by all persons.”
