Justice! is an investigative documentary on widspread corruption in Ghana’s judiciary. In September 2015, famed undercover journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas made shocking revelations of payoffs among Ghanaian judges and other court officials. Working undercover with a team of reporters for two years, Anas gathered audio-visual evidence of 34 judges and over 100 judicial staff taking bribes to rule cases in favor of the highest bidder. He and his team produced a three-hour documentary, wrote a series of newspaper reports, and petitioned Ghana’s Chief Justice and President to fire the corrupt judges.
