A five-member Supreme Court Panel chaired by Justice Julius Ansah has by a unanimous decision dismissed Justice Paul Dery’s suit which sought to declare as null and void proceedings instituted by the Chief Justice to remove him and several other judges who are alleged to have taken bribes.
The Supreme Court held that even though Tiger Eye PI did violate article 146 clause 8 of the 1992 constitution, it does not mean that the constitutional process to inquire into the petition should be declared null and void.
The embattled High court judge and several other judges were captured in a video allegedly taking monies to decide on cases before them by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas and his Tiger Eye firm.
So far, 20 of the Magistrate and Circuit Court judges implicated in the scandal have been sacked from office.
Meanwhile, two High Court judges John Ajet-Nasam and Ernest Obimpeh have also been dismissed from the judicial service following their involvement in the judicial scandal.
