One of the High Court judges cited in the judicial bribery scandal has fired the first salvo demanding a litany of reliefs.
Justice Paul Uuter Dery is one of 12 High Court captured on video allegedly receiving bribes from undercover journalists posing as family and friends of suspects and litigants.
The conduct of the judges has become the subject of an inquiry by the Judicial Council with impeachment lurking around the corner.
But they are not going down without a fight.
In a writ filed at the Fast Track division of the High Court, Justice Dery is seeking a total of 17 reliefs, topmost being “A declaration that the 1st Defendant (Tiger Eye PI) obtained the contents of the audio-visual recording unlawfully.”
