The investigative journalist will therefore have to unmask himself in private for the Former GFA President to see his face before testifying in court after an application by Mr Nyantakyi’s lawyers

Investigative Journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas would have to unmask himself when he testifies against former Ghana Football Association (GFA) President, Kwesi Nyantakyi in court.

This follows an order by the High Court in Accra.

The investigative journalist will therefore have to unmask himself in private for the Former GFA President to see his face before testifying in court after an application by Mr Nyantakyi’s lawyers.

The Supreme Court had quashed an earlier decision by a lower court granting permission for the investigative journalist to testify in private.

The investigative journalist volunteered to testify when Ahmed Suale, who was the key witness in the case was murdered.

The former president of the GFA, has been charged with fraud and corruption over his involvement in the Number 12 exposé.

This is in addition to the charge of conspiracy to commit fraud, which has been levelled against him.

The former GFA boss was secretly recorded by undercover private investigation firm Tiger Eye P.I. led by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas in a documentary titled Number 12.

The names of President Nana Akufo-Addo and some officials at the presidency came up during the investigative report, which led the President to refer the matter to the Criminal Investigation Department of the Ghana Police Service.

 

However, the legal processes toward Mr Nyantakyi’s prosecution, according to the Attorney General, stalled after the murder of a key member of that undercover team, Ahmed Hussein-Suale.
