$5 million bribe: Alleged multi-million properties of Chief Justice pops up. 46

 

 

It appears the buzz surrounding the $5 million bribe allegation against the Chief Justice Kwasi Anin Yeboah is not going away anytime soon.

Some plush properties believed to have been acquired by Justice Anin Yeboah after he was appointed Chief Justice pops up in Kumasi and Cantonments in Accra.

According to US-based Ghanaian journalist, Kevin Ekow Taylor, he has come across documents which suggest that the said properties are owned by the Chief Justice.

“The documents are here. We know these houses belong to the Chief Justice. Nobody can twist anything. These houses were purchased when he became Chief Justice” he said.

Also in his expose, Kevin Taylor implied that some millions of dollars in bribes may have exchanged hands between some justices of the Supreme Court and Ghana Telecom and that a well-known lawyer, Yaw Oppong had moved some US$200,000 for Justice Baffoe Bonnie and Justice Anin Yeboah at the National Investment Bank.

The bribery scandal against Justice Anin Yeboah broke a few weeks ago when Kwasi Afrifa, a lawyer from the O&A Legal Consult who has been accused of professional misconduct had claimed that his client, one Chief Oyeedom Obrani Kwesi Atta VI had bribed the Chief Justice with a staggering US$ 5 million.
