Justice again! Sues police for trying to investigate him

Beleaguered High Court judge, Justice Paul U. Dery, has brought a suit against the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the police.

He is trying to stop the police from investigating and possibly prosecuting him for his alleged involvement in trading justice for pecuniary and other material benefits.

Justice Dery is one of 12 High Court judges accused of collecting bribes to pervert justice.

Seven of his colleagues have been suspended and are going through disciplinary procedures to establish their guilt or otherwise.

In spite of this process, the police have started their own investigations into the scandal uncovered by journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

A number of judges have appeared before the police in respect of the case but Justice Dery is determined to fight the police inquiry.

In a suit filed Tuesday, November 10, 2015, the judge said, “his lawyers received a telephone call on the 9th of November, 2015 from the office of the [Director-General of the CID] inviting him to the Criminal Investigation Department to assist the police in the investigation of the allegations made by” Anas’ Tiger Eye PI.

He said the police investigations would amount to an interference with the suits he has brought before the High Court and Supreme Court chellenging the legality of evidence produced against him by Anas and the disciplinary procedures instituted against him by the Chief Justice’s committee.

More soon.
