A 5 member panel put together by the Chief Justice and headed by a Supreme Court judge to look into the matter, started its sitting on Thursday September 10, 2015. The video was shown to the accused judges after which they were given the opportunity to respond. They have already been asked to submit written responses about the accusation leveled against them and some have consulted their lawyers to help them write the appropriate response. Upon watching the video, the judges some of whom appeared shocked said they would go to the High Court for an injunction to be placed on the public viewing of the 3 hour video scheduled to be shown on September 22, 2015. Whereas some appeared unperturbed by the video, others were in total shock with facial expressions showing deep ‘remorse’. Ace investigative journalist, Anas has been granted immunity from prosecution or civil action by the Chief Justice, should any of the accused persons attempt to take him on legally.
