Investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas has said all the necessary documents and evidence he and his Tiger Eye PI team gathered against the former President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Mr Kwesi Nyantakyi, have been submitted to the Attorney General.

His assertion follows claims by the Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Ms Gloria Akuffo that her department has requested for some necessary documentation from Tiger Eye PI and Mr Anas to facilitate the prosecution of Mr Nyatnaky, but to no avail.

Ms Akuffo said her outfit cannot be blamed for any perceived delay in prosecuting Mr Nyantakyi.

“We will see prosecution; we have made that decision. But we need to have the full evidence and that may impact what we have in the draft now. I am surprised that the impression is being given that somewhat, we are not eager to prosecute. That, in fact, is unfair to this office.

“Particularly because we have been dealing directly with Anas and he knows the effort we have been putting in and what we are calling for and the fact that we have indicated what we need to enable us to move on, which he has not supplied to us yet”, she told the BBC in an interview

In a press statement, however, Anas and his team said: “We wish to state that Tiger Eye PI has not delayed in providing all the necessary documentary proof for prosecution,” adding that: “We have submitted all audiovisual and paper evidence in our custody to the office of the AG.

“The AG has always worked with documentary evidence supplied by Tiger Eye and has secured convictions. They always make sure they have all the necessary ingredients both audiovisual and paper works.

“The bigger picture of Je Suis Anas is to ensure that justice is not delayed. It does not mean we have lost trust or confidence in the AG and her office to prosecute these cases. The fact that a petition has been sent out does not mean nothing has happened. Our point is simple, we can be faster then we are,” the statement said.

Mr Nyantakyi has been banned for life from all football-related activity and in addition, will pay 500,000 Swiss Francs (2,613,051.58) for breaching Fifa’s conflict of interest and other corruption rules.

Mr Nyantakyi was caught on tape in an undercover investigation by Anas and his team receiving several wads of dollar bills, which, the journalist and his team claim was a $65,000 bribe.
