Lawyer Egbert Faibille Jnr has stated that he did not receive cash in 2009 on behalf of investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas to kill a case.
Maverick politician and New Patriotic Party (NPP) MP for Assin Central Kennedy Agyapong has alleged Mr. Faibille Jnr took a whopping sum to drop a case.
But, in a Facebook post, he said those allegations are without merit.
“A few weeks ago, Hon. Ken Agyapong gave an audio recording of Anas interviewing an arrested fraudster sometime in 2009 to one of the radio stations in the Multimedia stable; in respect of a multi-million gold scam during interrogation, Anas was heard mentioning my name in words to that effect as he was speaking, the scammed company had engaged me as a lawyer and that I was at the bank tracking the 419 money that they obtained.
“I took the pain to issue a statement here on Facebook on the issue. Last Friday, Hon Ken Agyapong called me on phone and asked that I meet him to watch the video he was going to show today.
I declined on the basis that the video he was going to show is only a pictorial rendition of the part of the video where Anas mentioned my name to show to the scammers that the duped company was tracking who received the money.
“Indeed, my work as a lawyer led to the prosecution of Hafiz, the lead scammer and his accomplices at an Accra High Court. I did not receive any payment from the scammers for and on behalf of Anas to kill the case as Hon. Agyapong is dubiously trying to portray and I challenge him and the scammers to provide any proof of any lodgment into my account from them for Anas,” the National Petroleum Commission boss posited.
