Speaking at the celebration of Eid-ul-Adha on Thursday, September 24, Maulvi bin Salih noted that the revelations about the “well trusted” judges could have an effect on public confidence in the judiciary.
“Revelations about such honourable people, who were well trusted by the citizenry as the last resort that each one of us could run to in the pursuit of justice, only for us to learn from this [investigative] film that such personalities allegedly disdainfully and callously thrown the blood brain barrier of the conscience of the Ghanaian to the winds.”
The acts of the accused judges were uncovered by investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, in what he describes as the most expensive piece of work.
The documentary was shown free of charge to the public on Tuesday and Wednesday at the Accra International Conference Center despite an injunction on the venue.
The head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission in Ghana called on leaders of the country to emulate the sacrifice Ibrahim was prepared to make in his son for Allah, a gesture that underlies the celebration of Eid-ul-Adha.
“It behoves the traditional leadership of this country, in like manner the religious leadership as well as the political leadership of this country that we must reflect that spirit of sacrifice.”
