ALJAZEERA - Justice! is an explosive Al Jazeera English documentary about Anas Aremeyaw Anas’s undercover crusade to rid Ghana of judicial corruption once and for all.

 

Over a period of two years, the award-winning investigative journalist secretly filmed 12 Ghanaian High Court judges, 22 other judges, and 140 court officials accepting bribes. While exposing their corruption, his actions also led to the release of alleged murderers and rapists.

In early September this year, after behind-the-scenes negotiations with the President of Ghana and the country’s Attorney General, Anas released his findings to the people of Ghana, unleashing a constitutional and political crisis of a kind not seen since in the country for decades.

As Kofi Annan, former UN secretary-general and one of Ghana's most famous sons, says in the film, "Sometimes it takes a spark, just a spark, and I think Anas has provided that spark for the whole edifice to blow up.”
