Ace investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, has arrived in court for a cross-examination exercise.
He will face the five-member body hearing impeachment petition he filed against 34 judges in Ghana.
Anas and his Tiger Eye team in a two-year undercover exercise exposed 34 judges who were allegedly negotiating with agents including court clerks and police prosecutors to free suspects in robbery and murder cases.
Lawyers of the accused judges will cross-examine Anas having watched the incriminatory video with their clients.
Twenty-two of the indicted judges have been suspended so far.
Meanwhile, pressure on Anas to halt the video screening has intensified as one of the indicted judges, Justice Paul Uuter Dery, after suing the producers of the video, has filed another suit to stop the premiering of the video at the Accra International Conference Centre.
Egbert Faibille Jnr, lawyer for four of the indicted justices has said that screening the video will be prejudicial.
“We went to watch the movie… 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 video should not be a conclusive basis for finding anybody guilty until due process is followed. There are certain sensibilities… At least I saw one child in the video. Are you going to show a child to the world because a parent was engaged in some discussions with somebody? We are talking about permanent records and I think that the frenzy should come down,” he told Starr News.
Titled ‘Ghana in the Eyes of God – Epic of Injustice’, the investigative piece is scheduled to be premiered at the Accra International Conference Centre on September 22 and 23, 2015.
Revealed: Why UK freed Nayele Ametefe after serving 3 years of her 8-year jail time
Drug Queen Nayele Ametefe has been released from jail having served only three years out of her 8 and a half years sentence for narcotics peddling and trafficking.
We learnt she was released days ago on parole for showing extraordinarily good behaviour throughout her 3 years in prison, even though she has 5 and a half years to go.
Parole is a temporary release of a prisoner who agrees to certain conditions before the completion of the maximum sentence period, originating from the French ‘parole’.
The Ghanaian who also hold an Austrian passport pleaded guilty to carrying 12 kilos of cocaine to the United Kingdom was been sentenced to eight years, eight months’ imprisonment.
Nayele Ametefe was sentenced on her own plea by the Isleworth Crown Court in London. The sentence was discounted because of her early guilty plea. Nayele appeared in court well dressed and looked indifferent when the sentence was handed down on her head.
The prosecutors told the court Nayele had $23,000 and an additional 6,000 Pounds in her handbag when she was arrested. The money was payment for her courier services.
According to the prosecutors, Nayele Ametefe was carting the cocaine to South America. Her travel itinerary, the court was told indicated that she was leaving the United Kingdom two days after her arrival, for the Dominican Republic.
The 12 kilograms of cocaine was, therefore, not meant to be consumed in the UK.
In his submission for mitigation, lawyer for Nayele told the court she came from an underprivileged home and married a spare parts dealer at Ghana’s famous spare-parts market, Abossey Okai.
She has three children, the first being 16 years old. Her marriage broke down and she has been a single mother.
According to the lawyer, Nayele came into contact with powerful people in 2004 and her life changed dramatically. She travelled extensively with influential people as their companion.
The lawyer said Nayele has remained connected to powerful people in authority who are currently in power in Ghana.
She was forced by circumstances to engage in transporting drugs to support her newly attained high-class lifestyle and to take care of her three children, the lawyer said.
