On one hand, many Ghanaians are excited (although sad at heart) and can’t wait to watch an upcoming documentary from the secret investigator, Anas Aremeyaw Anas. After many secret investigation documentaries, such as one made about Ghana’s DVLA, Anas is once more coming out with another breathtaking investigation.
Flip over the coin, and the story isn’t encouraging at all. The documentary, which throws one of the largest diameter spot lights onto the Judiciary system in Ghana is attractive many oppositions, perhaps more than anticipated. The premiere is slated for the later this month (22nd of September). Until then, some of the practitioners of the law, especially those directly involved in reveals of the documentary, are raising up their voices in an attempt to prevent the show of the over-2-years-in-the-making video by a well-renowned secretive journalist, whose works have been featured on Al Jazeera and other big media outlets around the world.
As insane as it might sound, about 22 Judges are requesting the video is tagged illegal. According to GhanaWeb, these judges “will be praying the court make it illegal for anyone to show the video on all broadcast platforms, including TV stations, the internet and on social media, such as YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and Whatsapp.”
Fortunately (and unfortunately for others), “Tiger Eye PI, holders of the copyright to the video, titled “Ghana in the Eyes of God – Epic of Injustice”, say they will go ahead with plans to broadcast the exposé.”
