Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, is pleading with President Akufo Addo to immediately reinstate judges who were fired or interdicted or are being prosecuted of the works of investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas and Tiger Eye PI.
According to Mr Agyapong, the investigative methods used by Anas are ‘evil’ and unlawful.
The MP who was speaking on Adom TV’s Morning Show, “Badwam” Tuesday, is therefore calling for the undercover journalist to be prevented from premiering his latest expose.

Thirty-four judges were exposed in the bribery scandal in 2016 including 22 magistrates and 12 High Court judges.
So far, about 20 of such judges have been sacked in connection with the exposé but Mr Agyapong is egging the president to reinstate them all.
The judges have previously used legal means in an attempt to clear their names rather unsuccessfully.
Mr Agyapong asserts that Anas used his position to set the judges up and therefore President Akufo Addo with the help of the current Chief Justice must reinstate the judges who fell to his ploy.
“I call on President Akufo-Addo to reinstate all the judges because the guy [Anas] enticed them. He used two boys, Ahmed and Rahman, to set the judges up. If you set people up, it is not investigative journalism … and I’ll prove to the whole Ghana that the boy is so corrupt and wicked, evil from the things he has done, bringing institutions that have been built over the years, down for him to be rich.”
“From what I’ve seen and what I know, I’m going to show the pictures… Anas is a thief because if he can set people up in Dubai, take their money and buy tablets, ship them to Ghana and refuse to pay taxes on them, for the wife to sell, you think we are stupid in this country?” he quizzed.
“They should call the Chief Justice then and ask how she contracted Anas to do what he did and look into it and ask them if what they did was fair to the judges,” he said.
