Nyantakyi’s Trial Case Put On Hold As Anas Aremeyaw Anas Refuses To Testify

Source The Ghana Report

The prosecution of former Ghana Football Association (GFA) President Kwasi Nyantakyi has been put on hold as ace investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas has refused to testify in the case in court.

It will be recalled that Anas in May 2023 was ordered by the High Court to appear before the court without his mask to testify in the case between Nyantakyi.

Kwasi Nyantakyi is facing charges of fraud and corruption.

These charges stem from offenses captured in the Number 12 documentary exposé by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas in 2018. The documentary allegedly shows Nyantakyi collecting cash and gifts and engaging in influence-peddling.

The High Court in Accra had previously granted an application by the state for Anas to testify in chambers.

Lawyers of Kwesi Nyantakyi however filed a certiorari application at the Supreme Court to quash the decision of the High Court insisting that the defendant appears in court unmasked.

On Wednesday, May 17, 2023, the court granted Nyantakyi’s wish by ordering Anas to testify in the prosecution case without his mask.

The High Court presided by  Justice Marie Louise Simmons in another ruling allied with Anas not to disclose his identity to the public but was ordered to reveal his identity to the plaintiff, Nyantakyi.

Anas, however, rejected the second alternative as well as he vowed to conceal his identity from the former GFA boss.
