Many Ghanaians have supported Anas’
modus operandi and encouraged him to do
more, but the demands of the judges will mean
he will be exposed to the whole world and this
could compromise his other works and put him
in danger. However, the lead counsel for the 22 accused
judges and magistrates, John Ndebugri does
not care about that and according to him, he
needs to cross examine Anas without his
mask. “You can’t see his face and the rules don’t
allow that. The demeanour of the witness is
very important,” he argued in an interview with Citi News. “… Where you have come and concealed
yourself behind all sorts of things, I cannot see
your demeanour and those who are the ones
investigating cannot see his demeanour…. I
will not cross examine a person who is
hooded,” he insisted. However, the sitting judge could also accept a
plea from Anas’ lawyers to hold those cross
examination sessions in camera, without
exposing Anas.
