Anas Aremeyaw Anas has been summoned to appear in open court to provide evidence in the case against Kwasi Nyantakyi by a five-member panel of the Supreme Court presided over by Justice Paul Baffoe-Bonnie.
Kwasi Nyantakyi, the former president of the Ghana Football Association, lost his job as a result of the investigative journalist’s exposé of several flaws in Ghana football in his documentary Number 12.
This led to his subsequent FIFA ban.
Nyantakyi has also been charged with fraud by agents together with another person.
However, they have both pleaded not guilty and are currently on trial.
The Criminal Division of the Accra High Court, presided over by Justice Elfreda Dankyi, ordered that Anas, who would be testifying in the case for the prosecution, testify in camera during the Case Management Conference.
Lawyers for Kwasi Nyantakyi petitioned the Supreme Court for a writ of certiorari on May 29, 2022, seeking to have the High Court’s orders that Anas testify in camera quashed.
On Tuesday, November 8, 2022, the Supreme Court overturned the High Court’s decision and ordered that Anas appear in court unmasked.
The trial will begin on November 28, 2022.
Nevertheless, the Supreme Court’s most recent ruling will be taken into consideration.
