Investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas has submitted a list of eleven incorruptible judges to the Chief Justice for commendation.
This was revealed by his former boss Abdul Malik Kweku Baako when he read a copy of his letter on ‘Newsfile’, a news analysis programme on Accra-based Joy FM.
These judges according to him were some of the judges he approached during his investigations but refused to take bribes and even threatened to put of his team behind bars for attempting to interfere with justice.
Among the eleven judges were district and high court judges. They are;
Justice Kwesi Boakye – High Court, Wa
Bright Mensah – High Court, Accra
Constance Hometorwu – High Court, Accra
Georgina Mensah – High Court, Accra
Afia Serwaa Asare Botchway – High Court, Accra
Anthony Oppong – High Court, Accra
Felicia Gandedzi – District Court, Abeka
Charles Kwesi Acheampong – District Court, Dodowa
Samuel Quartey – District Court, Ejisu
Abdul Baki Abdulahi – District Court, Tuobudom
Bright Ajosagi – District Court, Kodie
A total of 34 judges and about 180 workers of the judicial sector have been cited for corruption in the latest exposé on corruption in the judiciary.
The revelation has compelled the Judicial Council to suspend 22 high court judges and put 12 under investigations.
