Anas and his Tiger Eye team in a two-year undercover exercise "exposed" 34 judges who were allegedly negotiating with agents including court clerks and police prosecutors to free suspects in robbery and murder cases.

Anas sent the two petitions: one dated 31st August and addressed to the president; the other on 2nd September 2015 to the Chief Justice. The journalist in accordance with Article 146 asked the president to initiate impeachment proceedings against the High Court judges he says took bribes to pervert justice.

Twenty-two of the judges have been suspended so far.

Meanwhile, pressure on Anas to halt the video screening has intensified as one of the indicted judges, Justice Paul Uuter Dery, after suing the producers of the video, has filed another suit to stop the premiering of the video at the Accra International Conference Centre.

Egbert Faibille Jnr, lawyer for four of the indicted justices has said that screening the video will be prejudicial.

“We went to watch the movie… From what I have seen, certain considerations ought to be recognized in portions of what took place behind or around them which had been taken off. The video should not be a conclusive basis for finding anybody guilty until due process is followed. There are certain sensibilities… At least I saw one child in the video. Are you going to show a child to the world because a parent was engaged in some discussions with somebody? We are talking about permanent records and I think that the frenzy should come down,” he told Starr News.

Titled ‘Ghana in the Eyes of God – Epic of Injustice’, the investigative piece is scheduled to be premiered at the Accra International Conference Centre on September 22 and 23, 2015.
