Another high court judge sues Anas, CJ

Another high court judge is seeking reliefs from the Accra Fast Track High Court to have, among others, the immunity for investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas nullified.

Justice Mustapha Habib Logoh filed a writ at the court on Tuesday, roping in the Chief Justice and the Attorney General as well as defendants.

Justice Logoh is among 12 high court judges implicated in an investigative piece, which exposed their underhand dealings said to have brought the judicial arm of government into disrepute.

He is the second after Justice Uuter Paul Dery to have taken legal action against Tiger Eye PI and the Chief Justice over the scandal.

Chief Executive Officer of Tiger Eye PI Anas had petitioned President John Dramani Mahama over the 12 high court judges while the Chief Justice, Georgina Theodora Wood, was petitioned to take punitive measures against 22 circuit court judges.

But Justice Logoh in his writ said the audio-visual evidence submitted by Tiger Eye PI for impeachment proceedings to be taken against them is “unlawful” and an “entrapment”.

He also wants the Court to slap a “perpetual injunction restraining the 2nd and 3rd Defendants from relying on the said audio-visual recordings and transcripts in any proceedings howsoever described.”

Justice Logoh also considers as a breach of his rights the “continuous leakage” of the contents of the audio-visual recordings and transcripts by the defendants to media houses and social platforms.
