Investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas says his style of journalism which the court described as ‘terrorism’ is unfortunate but promised not to change.
He described the judgement by a high court judge in the defamation case against Assin Central MP, Kennedy Agyapong as “inimical to the administration of justice and fairness.”
The court on Wednesday dismissed a GHC25 million defamatory suit by Anas against the lawmaker. In his application, Anas prayed to the court to award aggravated damages to compensate for alleged defamatory material published against him by Agyapong.
Justice Eric Baah held that Anas failed to prove that Agyapong defamed him by airing the documentary Who Watches the Watchman?
However, a statement issued by Tiger Eye P.I – the investigative firm of Anas – described the ruling as a travesty of justice.
“We find the decision of the court an unfortunate travesty of justice and very inimical to the administration of justice and fairness,” the statement said.
“Tiger Eye PI and our CEO Anas Aremeyaw Anas remain resolute in our fight against corruption in the Ghanaian society in service to God and country,” the statement added.
