C & G Aleksa Company Limited, a mining firm operating in the Western Region, has sued Assin Central MP Kennedy Agyapong for GHS20 million as compensation for defamation.

In a writ, C & G Aleksa said Mr. Agyapong on his Net 2 TV, on July 24, 2018 “published various pictures of a land destroyed by mining activities claiming to be the mining concessions of C & G Aleksa.”

“Kennedy Agyapong also spoke and published to the hearing of all viewers the following words, whilst making reference to the pictures being shown to the viewers, which are defamatory to the plaintiff: The way they have destroyed/degraded the land…to destroy our lands like this and we have journalists defending them. The way the mining is carried out in Canada and Russia, let them do it for us to see. If this is how mining is carried out in their country, they should inform us,” the writ added.

C & G Aleksa said the pictures shown on the TV coupled with the outspoken MP’s comments, have “gravely injured” its reputation and business, and, has, therefore, appealed to the court to order Mr. Agyapong to pay “general damages of GHS20 million for slander spoken and published by the defendant.”

In an addition to its request for an apology by the MP, C & G Aleksa wants the court to slap an injunction on the lawmaker “from further publishing or causing to be published the defamatory words complained of”.
