Fourteen out of 22 of the lower court judges in Ghana accused of asking for bribes in the country’s biggest-ever judicial scandal, have challenged the ongoing investigation as well as their suspension.
All 22 judges implicated by a Ghanaian investigative journalist have been suspended pending the outcome of the investigations.
The judges say the judicial council does not have the power to investigate them and that the procedure being used is wrong.
The judges are challenging their suspensions on the grounds that they have not been found guilty of any offence.
