The statement from the Chief Justice’s office was released to clarify and dispel rumours and speculations that certain prominent people, including the Chief Justice, knew of the two-year investigation while it was being undertaken.

“The office of the Chief Justice wants to make it unequivocally clear that the Chief Justice had no knowledge before or during the said project or investigations. She had completely no knowledge, no clue whatsoever,” the statement sent to newsfile host Samson Lardy Anyenini on Saturday November 14, said.

“The only time she came into the picture was when, as required by law, she was brought into the picture, particularly when Anas indicated that he intended to screen the video to the whole world,” the Chief Justice’s office added.

The corruption scandal conducted by Anas Aremeyaw Anas and his Tiger Eye PI team uncovered acts of bribery and corruption by officials of the judiciary service.

Twenty-two of the lower court judges implicated in the scandal have been sanctioned while 12 high court judges are facing a five-member disciplinary committee set up by the Chief Justice.
