Ace Investigative Journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas has described maverick politician Kennedy Agyapong as a talkative without substance.
According to Anas, attempts by the Assin Central Member of Parliament to denigrate his reputation will fail miserably.
The renowned journalist stated that he is not fazed by the threats and intimidation by the NPP member adding that he is focused on his job and will not waiver in his attempts to expose corruption and rot in the country.
“The threats and intimidation are there but we cannot be moved. We are doing our work.”
Anas speaking to Morning Starr host Francis Abban also challenged those with incriminating evidence against him to face him in court.
Anas, who recently exposed corruption in the Ghana Football Association leading to the dissolution of the football governing body and the resignation of the FA head Kwesi Nyantakyi also dismissed claims he takes bribes from people to kill stories.
“I know myself and I believe in myself. I know I’ve never taken bribe from anywhere. You can premiere 30 times nothing will come out of it,” Anas stated in an apparent response to Ken Agyapong’s “Who Watches the Watchman” documentary.
The New Patriotic Party (NPP) lawmaker Mr. Agyapong has also accused Anas of paying lawyer Egbert Faibille to drop a criminal case.
Lawyer Faibille Jnr has clarified he did not receive cash in 2009 on behalf of the undercover journalist to kill a case.
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 which interrogation, Anas was heard mentioning my name in words to the effect that 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 as 419.
“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.
