The former president of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwasi Nyantakyi, has revealed that a formal complaint had been made in the United Arab Emirates against investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
He said he had lodged a complaint about the ace journalist over parts of the recordings in the recent 'Number 12' video footage.
Speaking on Net2 TV on Thursday, February 7, 2019, Kwesi Nyantakyi said Anas would have to face the laws in Dubai over the secret filming.
According to Nyantakyi, Anas and his TigerEye PI team broke the laws of the Emirati country by secretly filming him without his consent.
Kwesi Nyantakyi said Anas would face jail in Dubai if he is found guilty over the offence unlike Ghana where he was certain to go scot-free for secretly filming.
“Even in the UAE, it is illegal to record anybody without his permission. It is a criminal offence, it is not like here in Ghana. In Ghana we will say breach of the constitution but over there, you will be taken to court and if you are guilty, you are jailed for recording someone without permission.
As for him Anas, the report we have made against him, he will have to face those things in future and answer why he will be recording people in Dubai without their permission. It is in Ghana that he can do that and go scot free but it is not possible for him to do that in Dubai," Nyantakyi said.
In June 2018, Anas released a jaw-dropping video which shook the foundation of Ghana Football.
In the video, Nyantakyi was seen taking money from potential investors by using the name of President Akufo-Addo.
Following Anas’ expose, Nyantakyi relinquished his post as the GFA boss and also CAF 1st vice president.
