Some of the implicated judicial service staff in the bribery scandal have begun watching the video.
They are required to submit their responses to the Chief Justice after watching the video which allegedly captures them taking bribes or acting as middle men.
[contextly_sidebar id=”3rG4OnL00r2Tti1FmXSUPgrslfpf5Rem”]Speaking to Citi News after watching the video, counsel for four of the implicated staff, Egbert Faibille Jnr. also joined the others accused of wrong doing, to abandon plans to premier the video.
Among other reasons, he argued that that the footage contains the images of some minors, which also makes it unethical for its publication.
“At least I saw one child in the video. Are you going to show a child to the world because his or her parent was engaged in some discussions with somebody? We are talking about permanent records and I think that the frenzy should come down.”
Egbert Faibille Jnr said after watching the video, he thinks “it should not be a conclusive basis for finding anybody guilty until people have gone through the due process.”
“From what I have seen, certain considerations ought to be recognized in portions of what took place behind or around them which had been taken off.”
The lawyer argued that there is no “equitable basis” for the video to be shown to the public.
He said they are awaiting to receive certain documentations from the judicial service saying “once we get them, we will furnish them [Judicial Service] with our responses.”
In a related development, the judges who were also captured on the video had an exclusive viewing last week.
