Number 12: I won’t testify until Supreme Court rescinds decision for me to show my face – Anas Aremeyaw Anas

Written by on April 2, 2024

Investigative firm, Tiger Eye PI says its Chief Executive Officer will not testify for the state in the Republic vs. Nyantakyi case at the Accra High Court until the Supreme Court rescinds its earlier decision.

Presided over by Justice Baffoe-Bonnie on Tuesday, November 8, 2022, the Judge granted an application for certiorari filed by Kwesi Nyantakyi quashing the order of High Court 2, Criminal Division, Accra granting a dispensation to Anas Aremeyaw Anas to testify in camera as a prosecution witness in the criminal case.

But in a statement released on Tuesday, April 2, 2024, in response to allegations by Mr. Nyantakyi that he paid $100,000 to stop the release of the documentary, Tiger Eye PI stressed that the issue is still in court.

“…Additionally, he [Kwesi Nyantakyi] faces ongoing criminal trial for corruption and fraud at the High Court in Accra. Mr Nyantakyi’s desperation attempt to evade accountability could only happen after the murder of the key witness for the state, Ahmed Suale, after his face was shown on national television. A day before his assassination, Mr. Suale was in conference with state prosecutors over the criminal trial of Nyantakyi,” portion of the release stated.

It added that, “Anas Aremeyaw Anas, now a crucial witness for the state, has opted not to testify following a Supreme Court ruling mandating him to show his face to Mr Nyantakyi and his legal team.”

The statement explained that disclosing his identity to the former Ghana FA President and his legal team poses a significant risk to his safety.

“Anas perceives this as a significant risk to his personal safety,” Tiger Eye PI noted.

“However, should the Supreme Court grant permission for his testimony without disclosing his identity, Anas is prepared to cooperate fully as a witness to the state.”
