Assin Central Member of Parliament (MP), Kennedy Ohene Agyapong says he is preparing to drag ace investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, to the Supreme Court.According to the maverick politician, he is going to seek interpretation as to why someone who claimed pictures shown on Television were not his images will claim he has been defamed.
“I am going to Supreme Court first to let the court determine the defamation in the case since Anas claims the pictures I showed were not him…I am not in for Kwesi Nyantakyi but the principle the guy used and continue to use…,” he said n Accra-based Oman FM as monitored by GhanaNewsPage.Com
The Investigative journalist has sued the MP for defamation.
He is demanding GH¢25m in damages from the vociferous Member of Parliament who recently launched a fierce campaign against Anas’ work and his person.
Kennedy Agyapong in series of media interviews ahead of the premiering of Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ exposé on corruption in local football dubbed “Number12” accused Anas of entrapping persons captured in the investigative film. He described Anas as very corrupt and alleged that he was fond of taking bribes to exempt some persons he captures in his investigative films.
After releasing photos he purports to be Anas via Net 2 TV which he owns, and putting out a supposed leaked tape to back his claims that Anas is corrupt, Kennedy Agyapong called for the lynching of Anas for his nefarious acts.
But Ken insist, he will go to the Supreme Court to seek interpretation on that.
