Hundreds of international journalists who were hoping to watch investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ latest exposé on judicial corruption were disappointed as he stayed away from the subject.
[contextly_sidebar id=”MwMalN2hYNilgAv39Pkffb7WkGcTynOI”]He is in Norway together with journalists from all over the world at the Global Investigative Journalism Conference.
Anas rather showed them a different investigative piece on theft within the Ghana Health Service and declined to comment on his recent piece about the judiciary, citing the law suits brought against him by some of the implicated judges.
“34 Judges are being investigated, they have been suspended by the President of Ghana because of the investigation I have done. I cannot go further to say because the case is in court.We are talking about 34 Judges and 146 judicial staff. That is all I can say.”
Anas however charged his colleagues in Ghana not to be intimidated but take advantage of the growing “media freedom” to expose the rot in society.
Over 800 journalists from 121 countries are attending this year’s conference.
