The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Police is set to begin investigations into the bribery scandal in which some judiciary officers and police officers have been allegedly captured on camera taking bribes.
[contextly_sidebar id=”YWm2lTLpUS5ClMz3yQMptu60WZpipBSL”]The CID will today question five Police and judicial officers who have so far been identified in the video and may face interdiction.
The move follows a petition forwarded to the Inspector General of Police (IGP) and the Attorney General by investigative journalist, Anas.
More than 80 judicial officers were captured on the said investigative piece, allegedly taking bribes to influence judgment.
34 lower and high court judges have been indicted for allegedly taking bribes to influence their decicion in a video by Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
A Judicial Committee of inquiry has since been set up to establish the truth by investigating 22 lower court judges. But currently, the committee has suspended its sitting following the court cases in which the implicated judges are seeking that the court describes as unconstitutional the composition and operations of the committee.
Citi News also understands that the High Court Judges who were implicated in the exposé may also report at the CID headquarters for questioning.
