‘Galamsey Economy Exposé’: AICC’s prevented showing – Anas informs public of venue change

General News
A ticket for Anas and Tiger Eye P.I.'s latest investigative work: ‘Galamsey Economy Exposé’

Investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas has informed the public that the advertised venue for the showing of his latest work titled ‘Galamsey Economy Exposé’ has moved to stop him and his team, Tiger Eye P.I., from screening the film at their auditorium.

Anas said this via a series of tweets, Sunday, 13 November 2022. 

On a brighter note, he indicated that the showing will happen but at a different venue.

“Management of AICC [Accra International Conference Centre] informed Tiger Eye through our agent on Saturday, 12 November 2022, that the venue is no longer available for use on the said dates,” he tweeted.

The film was supposed to be shown tomorrow, Monday, 14 November, and Tuesday, 15 November, at the popular events venue on the Castle Road, Accra.  

“Tiger Eye has already fulfilled every requirement of AICC to use the place including payment for the venue despite last minute change in cost by about per cent (30%),” Anas again said. 

Noting he and his team are “saddened that barely 48 hours to the public screenings… we have had to look for a new venue,” he apologised “to the public for the inconvenience in change of venue,” and assured that: “Our agent is securing another auditorium and we will update the public soon on the new venue."

“All tickets already out are valid for the new venue,” the Tiger P.I. statement concluded.
