A Circuit Court judge, Benjamin Yaw Osei who was removed from office after an exposé documentary by Investigative Journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas revealed he was involved in corruption, has been acquitted.
Judge Osei was one of 20 lower court judges dismissed from office having gone through a Judicial Service process in the wake of the exposé.
Anas alleged that Judge Osei having received bribe, had facilitated the freeing of an accused individual.
However, the counsel for the judge argued that the said accused individual had actually been convicted and imprisoned and therefore, Anas’ allegation does not hold truth.
The court which was presided over by Justice Senyo Dzamefe on June 22 after hearing the case reversed a previous high court verdict against the defendant. In effect, Judge Benjamin Osei may be reinstated.
Anas’ approach in exposing instances of corruption has come under intense scrutiny as some believe the journalist is employing dubious means in the process. Some public figures and court judges have described his approach as “Investigative terrorism.”
Meanwhile, the ace investigative Journalist has hinted on a new exposé documentary ahead of the country’s 2024 general election.
According to him, this new exposé will shake the foundation of the country.
He disclosed this during a recent interview with DW Africa.
“The work that I am doing now might be the last before we get into the  elections. But already the signs are very clear and I can tell you that the foundation would be shaken once again.”
“There are a couple of international ones that are about to be released. But this one, talking to you as a Ghanaian, I mean the foundation of Ghana would be shaken,” he said.
