Akufo-Addo Fires Justice Dery, Two Other Judges Over Anas Exposé

Justice Dery

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has removed the last three high court judges in connection with the Anas Aremeyaw Anas investigations from office on the grounds of bribery and corruption.

They are Mr. Ayisi Addo, Mr. Uuter Paul Dery, and Mr. Mustapha Habib Logoh.

In 2015, ace investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas released a video from more than a two-year project on judicial corruption which exposed some justices of the High Court, Circuit Court, District Court and Judicial Service staff taking bribes to compromise their decisions.

The Anas investigations caught more than 100 members of staff of the Judicial Service on video either extorting money, receiving bribe or engaging in sex scandals.

The video, which detailed the forms the corruption took, showed how 34 of the culprits, judges at the High [12], the Circuit and the District courts [22], took bribes, including goats and foodstuffs.
