9:17 am
but you know there was an op in there why did you say which was that. and i felt embarrassed worse still twelve of the judges the investigators from tiger why i approached turned down the bribes and some of them even threatened to report the journalist to the police for attempted bribery could it be that gone as judges were more honest than rumor suggested. perhaps not and that is team slowly realized what was wrong they needed to spend longer hanging around courts and to their faces became familia sometimes we were just tagging along with relatives and not just saying anything but we had a sit in in the court and we always said at the place that i did this i don't know when you raises his head so as soon as you pull that beautiful visit. the dead looks at your face and think that ok this guy is funny and. inter milan novin

system is corrupt where are we going as a country with the serious problem of the hundreds and if some people would be thinking that this would be for the to democrats in this country get a leading member of the government who's seen the film gives an ass is take makes a clean bill of health and i think there are those who argue on issues of whether this was a sting operation or whether he said people are poor the instigator people are saying that given money that this was bribing them out of the middle class you know of the case that he was doing this what about the. the dutch ambassador also believes in assisting is justified. but it is so devastating and shocking what we saw today. what you. need to see. shortly after this the complex is stormed by thousands of people we want to see the
9:37 am
second showing. in all six thousand people will see these three screens. a master of screen past this the people that saw this queue to watch scandal of the century. convinced. that they looked out of the window in this saw that in a long time their girlfriends and i had not given that it's such a crowd before and it was massive. they just simply threw out their records saying that it was a matter of public interest and that he felt that the public had a right to know. and then to where people have gone on to attack me. thinking that i didn't have any evidence or i didn't have enough evidence after watching it they had always had changed because now they were convinced that there is really an issue. not surprisingly the judges and their
9:38 am
advisors remain unconvinced especially by some of the methods which have been employed where some of the ones i've seen it amount to and topper. when you're walking a guide telling the morning of five thirty when he is not properly dressed and you sneak into his. sitting room and he was stopped and gauging him in some conversation and out of gun yelling hospitality and respect he answers questions and then you put money on his table and you know i we're you going to publicize to know where you got these corrupt. i don't think our library we've got. this except for manasses film shows one of these investigators made in the judge's cool club as a guest house. we came across this quote clam he believed in the power of only one
9:39 am
can see heart and instead sex the investigator known as one of n.s.a. spy scales like to talk to us through what happened to. him he kept on telling me he was going to help me see the cat. he was trying to have i think meet. me on the way. by the family not to do it. again. michel. and i thought that i have. got me. this morning's papers have also picked up on this by scale story sorry sex for justice quarter i busted in and i was with you it's interesting. newspapers as of filtering and feeding on the substantive stories so here was this called black and
9:40 am
one of our spies girls and he demanded that he wanted sex before you could take us to educate. you actually ha ha ha ha ha ha. ha ha. well the details are there they are the facts out there who proposes that if you go to hotel it is that clark himself does that nobody forces anybody or maybe what. the judge in these headlines has been leading the fight back against the nasty. peta dairy a very senior judge was filmed during the trial of a man charged with possessing more than fifty pounds was of cannabis the undercover exposé shines a light on the shadowy world of the court official nearly one hundred fifty of who track in the saga. this is just as there is one of the judges who have really tormented me in this investigation he's
9:41 am
filed a mini mini suit trying to stop me this is a mayor he's a fixer to just bury and we met him and then we had a quick conversations with him about how he wanted to influence us is very an aquatic case. he took a share of the money as you can see and then set up a good meeting between us and just there. he acts for a lot of men and for jess is very large and he said that normally is ten thousand plus when you're dealing with the likes of justin berry because he's a big gedge for me your name takes us to the house of justice day this is just as day and this is me up but yes i'm
9:42 am
a are giving the money to justice there is no there are no quick meeting because mayor didn't want anything to be discussed there was a follow up meeting and a more unconventional bribe and this was the goods that we went in to give him on that fateful day. one of the nurses investigators is doing the deal i'd rather go. he was going to do call me more the crew took down the conversation we first had the judges fix our mayor who had been handling the deal. and. none told. you on your product are going to blow this one thousand are going to go to. the us. with an old. order thank you my lord you saw there he has just realized now that he's been
9:43 am
ripped off by his crack. system and then he put it. on he seems to. be investigated i want to know whether the bribe will get the accused off the group to go into therapy yet although not a little shocking this horse aquatic case. and because of the money you set him free. across central core complex is where the judges and their lawyers get to fully explain their actions most days and less is required to attend to and where you choose your beat which one he's given evidence in disguise even though some of his opponents object. and there's also believes that the media are using the opportunity to work out what he really looks like.
9:44 am
so today he's asking two of his colleagues to dress up in order to deceive them. the hearings have taken another unusual twist their assets have been for you finding an interesting one judge even claimed he'd been dealing not with a nice but with a girl most. just said that when i entered there and i sat with him and i gave him that the money he collected it suddenly i disappeared from the church. and when he walked out he saw a white sheep or goats it's arid across the fence but hey this is africa. some of the judges have not made it to the hearings at all because they've gone off sick judge quest is one of these. and this is running with us will show the full extent of the power that gone as judges have
9:45 am
a coup cases no matter how serious they are or how long they last did. this case resulted from an armed robbery in two thousand and seven at this picture or station the terrifying night time it has never been forgotten by the victim the support of the other second little guy keep he wanted by for. the order this was just the force of the whole i'm going to go. over what i like this little girl after the other things that are common. clearly the one what is the one i select just like this one is pressing my first album. that all the girls are crying for which. is the law crying. it took eight years for the attacker to face justice he came up before judge quest earlier this year. is
9:46 am
a very populated hearing. and he said on many crimean i case is in fact i have been in prison i would be forced me for and that is his crack so he makes a point come imation ten thousand by two know these people. so one limited will for them he said it took or that this quest to come. we have this entered their discussion. all you have almost my life. it's happened since then. it's contract on this one for him to give up the investigator hands over
9:47 am
about a thousand dollars in local currency but it's only at the heart failure of a police. car or a store. or telegraph. so here. we go i guess. good wholesome. right where we seem to. be really whole for a lot of them talking. to us is investigated makes a further meeting but he still hasn't come with the full balance of the upper regard for details so it was going to. get there me now it's. really too much. to judge if he is to be getting increasingly
9:48 am
annoyed because once again he's not getting the full amount. of the smile on my. wanting him. to morrow has come. back and this is chris pratt again. and this is a six thousand cities that were passing to him and he's taking that money he's looking at it and then he will ask how much is it that they were telling him how much it was the final payment was made on the same day that the day. judge freebee accused in fact the deal held down the start of the day's court proceedings court processes usually begin from that it will matter on this day was that into eleven a.m. quest or still not here because we had delayed him was he came to take them back
9:49 am
today is the day he's going to really do the job the bed or two of them to do and lo and behold. he then decided to give that he basically read three four lines and that was it a case that had dragged on for five good years justice quest and even releasing self confessed on robbery what do you think about that just taking a brother as i think it and also that grammar should be realistic it is realistic. every word to the court or the time in which a court order for five times and there are several obvious obvious flaws armor of us came when there were marks. you see there is there only i don't know the. newly qualified graduates are cool to the bar you've gone up this is a joyful occasion but mass is expose a is also cost
9:50 am
a major cloud over the proceedings. the song is not impressed the chief justice. you are graduating at a time in a legal history well more than ever the perception of the public all the process is largely negative. allegations of bribery and corruption in the judiciary and of the legal profession in general at all time high and closer to those possibly at a lot and. the chief justice is firm message to the young lawyers is one that is resonating around the well. when you have had to four judges who are caught on tape. with the primary evidence they may have taken bribes is an indication that there's something
9:51 am
hopelessly wrong with her system. cannot afford to have a tradition in a country like canada that is not reliable that is not dependent that people have no confidence in. the results of this should be that those who have been proved to be corrupt should be dealt with extracted from the system and there should be going forward safeguards put in place and a new mindset which is i'm not going to succumb to such appalling acts of corruption not only because i might be caught but because it's appalling. the legal investigation is not going entirely n.r.c. is why seven of the senior judges were suspended in early october but one lower court judges no longer be an investigator because of issues with some of the evidence their own why the concerns too that unless is expose
9:52 am
