- Former GFA president, Kwesi Nyantakyi, has filed another suit against investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas
- This follows an earlier suit filed at a High Court with regard to defamation of character
- In the second suit, he stated that the secret recording violates his fundamental human rights to privacy and confidentiality in my dealings with others
The former president of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi, has filed another suit at the High Court against investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas and Tiger Eye PI.
An initial suit is still pending at the High Court, and was with respect to defamation of character.
In the new suit, Nyantakyi is praying the court to declare that Anas’ secret recording of their conversations as well as publishing same, violates his “fundamental human rights to privacy and confidentiality in my dealings with others.”
Again, he wants the court to declare that the recordings violated his “right to dignity” because he wasn’t consulted before the piece was premiered.
He thus prayed the court to award damages against Anas and his Tigereye PI firm for the said violations.
Anas, in June 2018, premiered a video which exposed corruption at various levels of Ghana football.
The video among other things exposed over 80 referees and match officials receiving monies to fix matches.
With regards to Nyantakyi, he was found in the video supposedly trying to use the name of the President, Akufo-Addo, Vice President Bawumia and some other government officials to seal a business deal.
Anas, in the video, claimed he gave Nyantakyi about $65,000 for “shopping”, which violated FIFA code of ethics.
Kwesi Nyantakyi, has meanwhile also lost his positions at the West African Football Union (WAFU), Confederation of African Football (CAF) and FIFA.
Although he is serving an extension of a 90-day ban from FIFA, Anas wants him banned for life from all football activities.
