- Four High Court judges are reported to have lost their lives
- Some others are also said to be suffering from various ailments
- All such judges were part of the 34 who were suspended as a result of investigations conducted by Anas Aremeyaw Anas
The Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, has revealed that four High Court judges are currently have suffered strokes.
According to a report by MyNewsGH.com, he added that some are also dealing with life-threatening ailments while others have lost their lives.
This, he said, occurred soon after they were implicated in the judicial scandal that occurred in September 2015.
“Four of them have suffered strokes and have been down ever since but you are here supporting the same, Anas. I will expose him for people to know who he is. Anas is not clean,” he disclosed on Accra-based Okay Fm.
This, he said, is because they were unjustifiably exposed for engaging in alleged corrupt acts.
The lawmaker further asserted that some lost their lives as a result of frustration, as they were not fairly treated.
He therefore called on the president, Nana Akufo-Addo and the Chief Justice, Sophia Akuffo, to ensure fairness in their dealings with the affected members of the bench some of who are currently in court challenging their dismissals.
Kennedy Agyapong disclosed that investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas used some people to set up the public official, and as such, that cannot be ferred to as investigations.
“He used one Rahman and Ahmed to set them up and that cannot be called investigations. If you set people up you cannot call that investigation,” he said.
It would be recalled that about 20 Magistrates and Circuit Court judges implicated in the judicial corruption scandal in 2015 were sacked.
The judges, who were part of the 34 implicated in the exposé done by ace investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas, were dismissed for violating provisions of the 1992 Constitution, according to the Committee set up to investigate Anas’ claims.
Some of them were sacked with benefits while others got dismissed without their benefits.
