Kwesi Nyantakyi, a former president of the Ghana Football Association has said that he has been vindicated after a High Court rule in favor of Honorable Kennedy Agyapong in a defamation suit brought against him by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
Aremeyaw Anas sued the lawyer maker for defamation in a video documentary titled “Who Watches the Watchman” which was a rebuttal of the journalist’s work “Number 12”.
The Number 12 investigative piece led to the ousting of then-GFA president Kwesi Nyantakyi.
The court dismissed the suit and slapped the journalist with a GHC50,000,00 fine.
Kwesi Nyantakyi spoke to Oman FM in reaction to the court’s ruling and said the High Court’s decision has brought the truth to light and everyone has seen that Anas Aremeyaw Anas is not truthful.
He added that in the words of the judge, Anas Aremeyaw a blackmailer and an extortionist.
The former FA chief revealed that when his case came, Anas made someone come and see him. That individual he disclosed is called Kwame Gyan, a lecturer at Legon and it was Kwame Gyan Anas sent to come and see him; he doesn’t know Kwame Gyan anywhere, and he never met him.
Nyantakyie further disclosed that the extortionist the judge referred to is exactly the modus operandi of Anas and that those who pay money to him get their videos cancelled.
And because he refused to pay Anas and his team money, his video was released.
