Anas petitions EOCO, BoG, AG to probe Nyantakyi over money laundering
Investigative journalist and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Tiger Eye PI, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, has petitioned the Economic and Organized Crime Office (EOCO), The Attorney General’s office, the Bank of Ghana (BoG) and the Financial and Intelligence Centre to investigate Kwesi Nyantakyi, the former Ghana Football Association (GFA) boss for money laundering.
The award-winning journalist, whose latest Number 12 expose has led to the resignation of the GFA boss and planned dissolution of the FA, believes the lawyer has breached the criminal laws of Ghana including offenses as money laundering.
The investigative journalist wants Mr. Nyantakyi to be investigated over some money laundering claims he made in his latest investigative documentary titled #Number12.
The investigative journalist in his bases of complaint said: ‘’we have found Mr Nyantakyi abusing his office, breaching his fiduciary duties, engaging in acts of egregious conflict of interest demanding and receiving gifts and other benefits, and engaging in bribery and corruption, and money laundering.
These were uncovered by way of hard facts, captured on audio/visual recording, electronic mail correspondent, and a memorandum of understanding drafted by Mr Nyantakyi his handwriting, and subsequently type-printed and signed by him.’’
‘’By his conduct, as detailed in paragraph two above and evidenced by the attached documentary evidence, it is our firm belief that Mr Nyantakyi breached the criminal laws of Ghana including offences as money laundering, corruption, bribery, and fraud by false pretenses, by abusing his office.’’
