Anas to unmask for Nyantakyi before he testifies in court

Estimated read time 2 min read

An Accra High Court has ruled that Tiger Eye PI investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas should always unmask to be identified by Kwesi Nyantakyi before he testifies in court.

The former GFA and FIFA Council member lost his positions in 2018 following the release of the investigative video titled “Number 12: When Greed and Corruption Become the Norm” by Anas and his team. Kwesi Nyantakyi who is standing trial for fraud and corruption will have the opportunity to always identify Anas anytime the journalist comes to testify in court.

Kwesi Nyantakyi was caught on camera allegedly receiving cash and other gifts in a bid to manipulate some football interest in the country.

Ahmed Suale, a colleague of Anas was the key witness in the case but following his demise, Anas volunteered to mount the witness box and testify against Nyantakyi.

Per the High Court decision based on the recognition of Anas as a key witness against the defendant, it said it was necessary for Anas to be identified by Nyantakyi in chambers before he mounts the witness box.

“Investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas will testify against former GFA President Kwasi Nyantakyi in open court but disguised in a mask. Mr Nyantakyi will, however, have the opportunity to see his face in chambers before such testimony.”
