4:10 am
the amount of money needed to tim seen in a judge's light this is no small a nurse says that this judge wanted around three thousand dollars more than a month's salary for a high court justice who spoke to him where the kids were given their narration and they who demanded that their money be given to him so that's what you can see here is the man that has been given to give it up and give us an add on to an eight thousand c.d.'s and it over but the judge wants to make sure he gets a further amount he offers to meet the defendant in person to sort out the paperwork. after the money is finally handed over the lucky gift. olds frayne is three whole accuse will get long sentences as the oil companies state owned it's the people of
4:11 am
ghana we've just lost out is this kind of corruption which provides ferd's how ground for campaigning journalist like crazy pratt the award winning newspaper editor crossing our facts with your list of the facts everything first of all enormous resources are being taken out of the state coffers in the last resources are being taken out of private coffers and so all of that ended up with it ought not to be in this corruption in the award of call tries it means that the contractors are going to do a shoulder job you know if there is corruption you know in the admission of studios in is that the quality of students who are going to end up wasn't in years and so on would be defective. with huge natural resources including oil gone as should be one of africa's powerhouse economies but it's not. a point not lost on ghana's
4:12 am
most influential citizen corruption that's not on the distraught. development it deprives the poor of services. and not only does it deprive the poor of services when the corrupt get away with it and there are no sanctions you are creating this is i take it a kabir groton to the court. after two years under cover and nasa needs tiger i investigative team went public in september the decision would provoke huge controversy death threats and they sometimes uncomfortable spotlight on their own methods. among the first to hear what had been going on was gone as president john muhammad mr president. has a problem on our hands. what is the problem the judiciary. then he bowed down has
4:13 am
had. a deep thank. wow so how many. thirty four. a nurse also briefed gone as most senior judge the chief justice to gino would say as how long is this meeting when the well finish talking about maybe twenty minutes. were there for twelve hours. just a few days later the chief justice suspended twenty two junior judges and began impeachment proceedings against twelve more senior ones and as was told by the president his evidence would be vital but he was warned he'd be in for a tough time in x. to me and i prepared to sept at myself and that's quitting and that says that because it's not going to be awful i said mr president. i can't put my life on the
4:14 am
evidence i have. no consent for the end. as an undercover journalist and this has been laying his life on the line for nearly twenty years i am going undercover to find out who is behind this illegal business and how do i get in the way with it. initially a newspaper journalist is on the cover techniques made him a television natural what's needed is government regulation and then force me to protect our children environment and our future. he didn't face the gay corruption of calling no subject was off limits. and this was singled out for his campaigning journalism by the us president when he came to donna in two thousand and nine today i'll focus on four areas that are critical to the future of africa and the entire developing more democracy
4:15 am
opportunity health and the peaceful resolution of conflict we see that spirit and courageous journalists. well i got us i remember i doubt risked his life for the truth and if you do stories that often invest in port and attention like. vesta kitty rex placing to human trafficking the chinese mafia sex fame dealing with kate's exploits and kate's i mean if you do the kind of story that has international impact i'm most surprised a u.s. president will record my start. unless home these forensic techniques fervor by qualifying as a lawyer it was was study in the law and he began to focus on the hidden problem of judicial corruption if you look at records look at the gun and dignity initiative of or to look at the u.s.
4:16 am
department of state report for better or meet our report. always say that. they could dish out. as having issues and telling these off or option. i felt embarrassed as an undercover and an artist that. we only left it at the realm of speculation and that flash substyles produce issue. and they spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on a network of undercover agents i mean to bribe judges includes officials in every region of gone on cases they would target included family disputes fraud armed robbery and a great in fact any case up to and including murder. and first the judges seem to resist the chance of extra funds for their fair sex and it was selfish there was no results coming and nothing and nobody was taking that on i was i spoke
4:17 am
to my team it was almost like i recall one team member. there was not in there why did you see which was that. and i felt embarrassed worse still twelve of the judges the investigators from tiger roy approached turned down the bribes and some of them even threatened to report the journalists to the police for attempted bribery could it be that gone as judges were more honest in bruma suggested. perhaps not and this is a team slowly realized what was wrong they needed to spend longer hanging around cool and to their faces became familiar something we were just tagging along with relatives and now they're saying anything about where does any of that court and we always said that a place that i did this i knew when he raises his head so as soon as you do that beautiful visit the dead looks at your face and think that ok this guy is funny and
4:18 am
i caught. him turmel a northern gone out an ass is investigators went to see if they could influence the outcome of a rape case it was an appeal here in the twenty nine year old defendant wanted to reverse a conviction for raping an under-aged girl and last his team went to plead for the young man. this is the job for the city always will work respect that high court judge and come at it and not their original soul but rather than lead us to his house that morning and met and as you can see that's how. the defendant is appealing because he claims the girl was actually sixteen at the time and judge and so dear boys shouldn't be meeting like this but he appears willing to listen and he suggests that the girl's father should come to court to
4:19 am
say she wasn't really under-aged there. oh yeah i went. in my. right that i've. been going to be. they judge as helping us so that they guy can walk free. so we took the money. and then we handed it over to the judge is anxious nobody should know that he accepted the cash i think. and he said oh. ok so. there's as well and that has his claque course not part of the incident. this was the day of
4:20 am
judgment and he would look very good that day and he indeed he freed this guy it was after we had been two thousand then as it is to him when therefore decided to go back to him. and this is team take a traditional gift bags of yams and more cash i think and see here is he collecting the money that we were giving him. the convicted rapist was freed from a ten year sentence with hard labor to return home to the gills neighborhood as a result of the nasa is intervention. not everybody agrees with the nazis methods not even some from his ungentle estate community journalists are not supposed. to be acting. intelligent agents no not really substantially different from
4:21 am
undercover cia some other couple m i five agents and so on we've investigated but i metals also different you know. not a whole unless a real anonymous dune sold there which is local where the search has been this an interest group and sought but the men thought a lot journalistic burnous is unashamed about his methods and believes the ends justify the means by journalism is a product of a society rock have swung an america and you do a story we have a chance is strong citizens who would get up and ensure that they follow up and put those bad guys behind bass. here in the philippines it is also. in the first week of september news of an ass is sting operation against the nation's judges has begun leaking out the justice suspect twenty two judges and

4:38 am
makes it clean bill of health and i think that those who argue on issues of whether this was a sting operation or whether he said people are. used to get ten people last year saying that given money to get this was bribing them out of the committee of the bureau of the case that he was doing this but to go up. the dutch ambassador also believes iness sting is just define. this devastating and shocking what we saw today. what you. mean obviously it's. shortly after this the complex is stormed by thousands of people we want to see the second showing. in all six thousand people will see these three screens. a mass to scream eat past this the people that so did skew towards the scandal of
4:39 am
this century. convinced. that they looked out of the window and this saw that in the wrong them to call friends and i had not given that it's such a crowd before and it was massive. they just simply threw out their records saying that it was a matter of public interests and that he felt that the public had a right to know. and then there were people who had gone on to attack me. thinking that i didn't have any evidence or i didn't have enough evidence after watching it always had changed because now they were convinced that there's really an issue. not surprisingly the judges and their advisors remain unconvinced especially by some of the methods which have been employed were some of the ones obscene amount or improper. when rob walker elling the morning of five
4:40 am
thirty when he's not properly dressed and you sneak into his. sitting room and you start engaging him in some conversation and out of garnering hospitality and respect he answers questions and then you put money on his table and you go our way are you going to publicize to know where you got these coral. i don't think i will agree with got. to his favorite this excerpt from an ass is film shows one of these investigators meets in a judge's cool club at a guesthouse. he came across this quote clam he believed in the power of only one caring seeing heart and instant sex the investigator known as one of the last is by scales later to toss free water happened to they can tell he kept on

4:42 am
the details are there the app. fax who proposes that if you go to who it is that. nobody forces enabled you omitted. the judging these headlines has been leading the fight back against the nasty. peta dairy a very senior judge was filmed during the trial of a man charged with possessing more than fifty parcels of kind of b.s. the undercover expose a shines a light on the shadowy world of the court official nearly one hundred fifty of the top in the saga. this is just as there is one of the judges who have really tormented me in this investigation is a mini mini suit trying to stop me this is a mail he's affixed to just as barry and we met him and then we had
4:43 am
a quick conversations with him about how he wanted to influence this is there not quality case. he took a share of the money as you can see and then set up a good meeting between us and just there in the next for a lot of money for just as there is only said that normally is ten thousand plus when you're dealing with the likes of this is there because he's a big judge sotomayor and then takes us to the house of justice. this is just as dairy and this is me. but. yes me or given the money to just is there it was a very quick meeting because mayor did you want anything to be discussed there was a follow up meeting and the more unconventional bribe and this was the goods that
4:44 am
we went to give him on that fateful day. one of his investigate is it doing the deal i'd rather go. he was going to do the car meanwhile the printer down the conversation we first had the judges fix our mayor who has been handling the deal yet and. i think the nine thousand. new under fact are implies there's one thousand. one hundred out of it and there you go you get the real. order thank you my lord you saw that he has us from hell and now that he's been ripped off by his crack to . a man and then he put it. on has to be investigated i want to know whether the bribe will get the accused off
4:45 am
but this is going to therapy you know bit. of a shock in this one aquatic case. and because of the money you set him free. across central cool complex is where the judges and their lawyers get to fully explain their actions most days unless is required to attend to and where you choose your beat which one he's giving evidence in disguise even though some of his opponents object. and there's also believes that the media are using the opportunity to work out what he really looks like. so today he's asking two of his colleagues to dress up in order to deceive them. to hearings of taken another unusual twist their assets have been freely finding an
4:46 am
interesting one judge even plaintiff in dealing not with the nice but with the girl most. just said that while i entered there and i sat with him and i gave him the money he collected it suddenly i disappeared from his chair. and while he walked out he saw a white sheep all ords etc because the fence but hey this is africa. some of the judges have not made it to the hearings it's because they've gone off sick judge quest is one of these. and this is running with show the full extent of the power that go on as judges of a coup cases no matter how serious they are or how long they last did. this case resulted from an armed robbery in two thousand and seven at this picture or stations that are a finite time it has never been forgotten by the victim or favors for the other
4:47 am
second when the little guy could want to buy for. an attack and push through the border distrust look i would be pissed at the fossil record and quality goes. overboard in light of this little girl after the other things that are common that the government got so clearly the one who put this one as lets just let this police press in my first dump. all the girls start crying which one is stuck with almost awkward or coldness of it all crying. it took eight years for the attacker to face justice he came up before judge quest earlier this year. it's a very popular hearing. and he said on many criminal cases in fact i have been in prison i would been before christ before and that is crack so the mix of point
4:48 am
term imation ten thousand by two no these people. are one of the inmates in ilford in the said it took or they dish on this quest because. we have this and that they discuss. you have almost. lost. its astronauts and what's happened since then it's contract these men. to keep up the investigated and so brag about a thousand dollars in local currency but it's only at twenty million dollars i published. a large
4:49 am
resource. for telegraph. so. i'll get you. a good wholesome. prize in every film to. see your whole face off of them. and this is investigated makes them eighteen but he still hasn't come with the full balance the upper regard for him he will live on it's. given me now it's. really too much. to judge if he is to be get an increase in the annoying because once again he's not getting the full amount. of the smile not.
4:50 am
the small on him. with more has come. back and this is chris pratt again. and this is a six thousand feet away pass into him and he's taking that minute he's looking at it and then he will ask how much is it now with. how much it for. the final payment was made on the same day that the judge freebee accused in fact the deal held up the start of the day's cold proceedings court process is usually begin from that it will matter on this day horse get into eleven am quest or still not here because we had delayed him while he came to take them back today is the day he's going to really do the job the bed or two of them to do and lo and behold . he then decided to give that he basically read three four lang's
4:51 am
and that was it a case that had dragged on for five would be is justice quest and even releasing it as self confessed and moreover what do you think about that just taking a brother as i think grammar should be realistic british realistic i will work to the court order to be worth a quarter or for five pounds and there are several other service was our of us when they were mark's. busy because they're lonely i don't know the. newly qualified graduates are cool to the bar and gone this is a joyful occasion but masses exposé as also cost a major cloud over the proceedings. the saga is not impressed the chief justice. you are graduating at
4:52 am
a turnover in the legal history well more than ever the perception of the public on the process is largely negative. allegations of bribery and corruption in the judiciary and of the legal profession in general at all time high and closer to those possibly at all time and. the chief justice is firm message to the young lawyers is one that is resonate in around the well. when you have had to for charges who are caught on tape. with the evidence they may have taken bribes is an indication that there's something hopelessly wrong with her system. you
4:53 am
cannot afford to have a tradition in a country like canada at to start reliable that has car dependent that people have no confidence in. the results of this should be that those who have been proved to be corrupt should be dealt with extracted from the system and there should be going forward safeguards put in place and a new mindset which is i'm not going to succumb to such appalling acts of corruption not only because i might be caught but because it's appalling not only because i might be caught but because it's appalling. the legal investigation is not going entirely nic is why seven of the senior judges were suspended in early october but one lower court judges no longer be an investigator because of issues with some of the evidence there are a wide of concerns too that unless is exposé has backfired on the criminal justice system the real disaster of this investigation is the damage to
