Chief Justice Kwasi Anin Yeboah seems to still be in the spotlight as the $5 million bribe charge against him continues to make waves.
Several plush properties believed to have been acquired by Justice Anin Yeboah after being appointed Chief Justice have popped up in Kumasi and Cantonments in Accra.
Kevin Ekow Taylor, a Ghana-based journalist in the United States, claims he has discovered documents that reveal that the chief justice owns the said properties.
“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.
