A private legal practitioner, Nana Asante Bediatuo has said the judicial committee set up to investigate the judges implicated in the judicial corruption scandal cannot restrict the movements of the judges.

His comment follows revelations by investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, who claimed that one of the implicated judges, Justice Ajet Nasam has left the country.

Anas in an interview had stated that “I have my intelligence where he [Ajet [Nasam] is currently at …and I believe we will get there. I think that he outsmarted us and left but it’s not the end of the road yet.”

Ajet Nasam has been invited on several occasions by the judicial committee to appear before it but he is yet to do so.

However, legal practitioner, Nana Asante Bediatuo has told Accra-based Citi Fm, the committee is only an administrative one established to investigate the judges.

He said the Attorney General can only repatriate Mr. Nasam only when he is formally charged with a crime.

“The AG would have to first bring a formal charge against him and then because he is out of the jurisdiction, find out where he is. If it is a kind of crime they can use Interpol and their extradition treaties with other government perhaps to secure his repatriation, yes, but they have to formally charge him on criminal bases,” he added.

Ajet Nasam is among over 30 judges who were caught on video by Anas for allegedly accepting bribes to influence judgments.
