Ghana has suspended seven of 12 High Court judges implicated in allegations of bribery stemming from a documentary made by an investigative journalist.

According to BBC News, the Journalist says he has nearly 500 hours of video evidence on tape, showing judges alleging asking for bribes and demanding sex.

The seven are the most senior judges to be suspended so far in what is the biggest corruption scandal to hit Ghana’s judiciary. Twenty-two lower court judges have also been suspended.

An inquiry would now be held to determine whether or not they are guilty. They could be sacked if they are found guilty.
