A Special Appeal’s Court will begin hearing of all cases relating to the recent judicial corruption scandal today, September 25.
The court was set up by the Chief Justice after several agitations from some judges indicted in the scandal.
These judges had petitioned the court challenging the legality of a committee probing their alleged corrupt acts. They considered as wrong the procedure adopted by the Chief Justice to probe them.
This special court will be presided over by appeals court judge Justice Gertrude Torkonu.
