Private legal practitioner and lawyer for some of the 22 judges who were implicated in the judicial corruption scandal, John Ndebugri, has said that all the people who viewed Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ video at the Accra International Conference Center (AICC) on Tuesday, are in contempt of court.

In the latest investigative piece by Anas Aremeyaw Anas and his Tiger Eye team, 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 shown at the Accra International Conference Centre despite an application of interlocutory injunction served the Ministry of Foreign Affairs' property.

Speaking on Accra-based Citi FM, John Ndebugri said due to media attention and coverage given the case, people who saw the video could not say they were ignorant of the suit against the video premiere, and were therefore in contempt of court.

“The showing of the video is in absolute contempt of the High Court of the republic of Ghana. If I were the lawyers for Justice Dery,I would’ve stationed an equally powerful camera like Anas’ to capture all the people who are going in to the AICC to view. They are all culpable, they are all in contempt of court including the minister and diplomats.”

“I was in court when under some pressure, lawyer for Justice Dery asked on good advice to withdraw his application for an interlocutory injunction against Tigereye PI from airing the video. But my information indicated that there was another application for injunction restraining the AICC from airing the video.My instructions are that that application has been duly served on the management of the AICC.”

He added that the management of the AICC who are aware that there is an application pending against the airing of Anas' video and went ahead to open its doors for people to come and view the video is obviously 'disrespectful of the court and the judicial process'.

 

Thousands of people thronged the AICC to watch the judicial scandal video. Titled Ghana In the Eyes of God: Epic of Injustice, the three-hour edited video, which is the result of a two-year painstaking investigation into the judiciary by ace investigative journalist, Anas also exposed some of the judges in a sex scandal.
