Full list of dismissed lower court judges

Georgina-woodeTwenty (20) out of the 21 lower court judges indicted in the recent judicial corruption scandal, exposed by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas, have been removed from office.

Some of the judges were removed with their end of service paid, but others were not given.

But one of them was left off the hook, since according to the Judicial Council he was mistakenly added to the list.
