Judge to rule on Anas’ suit against Kennedy Agyapong on October 11

- The judge of the defamation suit filed by Anas Aremeyaw Anas against Kennedy Agyapong has revealed the new date to determine the case

- According to him, the matter will be decided on October 11, 2018

- The change of date was as a result of concerns raised by the defendant's legal team

An Accra High Court, presided over by His Lordship Justice Daniel Mensah, has finally released the date to rule on the matter between journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas and lawmaker, Kennedy Agyapong.

According to a report by MyNewsGH.com, the suit, at its last hearing, was adjourned to July 31, 2018, but its ruling had to be postponed again because of concerns raised by the defendant’s legal team.

Lawyers for the Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central argued that they had not been previously served with a supplementary affidavit.

They went ahead to say that for that reason, they needed more time to study the said affidavit.

The trial judge, Justice Daniel Mensah subsequently granted their request, and set October 11, 2018, as the new date to rule on the case.

Anas Aremeyaw Anas filed a GHC25,000,000 suit in court against Kennedy Agyapong, arguing that the defendant defamed him.

This, he stated, occurred in the course of several weeks of media attacks by the MP, in a bid to prevent the journalist from premiering Number 12, his latest investigative work.
