Veteran Ghanaian journalist, Kweku Baako, has claimed that the Tiger Eye PI team will willingly hand over the raw footage of the latest documentary on illegal mining to the government.
Speaking in an interview on Thursday, February 28, 2019, he explained that giving such footages to the relevant bodies has always been the tradition at Tiger Eye PI.
Citinewsroom.com reports that he said this brings a better perspective to the investigations and helps to bring the perpetrators to book.
He went on to say that, there is nothing strange about a request from the government to examine the raw video.
According to him, this has been the situation on several occasions, examples of which include the documentary about corruption in the judiciary and Number 12, which focused on corruption in football.
The minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, at a press conference on Thursday, February 28, 2019, stated that action would be taken on the video, after investigations are complete.
Confirming a petition by TigerEye PI to the special prosecutor, Martin Amidu, Kweku Baako said Anas has already handed the investigative video to the Office of the Special Prosecutor and will soon send the unedited footages to the same office if a request is placed for it.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the latest investigative piece by the Anas Aremeyaw Anas-led Tiger Eye team had released a documentary focused on illegal mining in Ghana.
A part of the video showed Charles Bissue, the secretary to the Inter Mininsterial Committee on Illegal Mining (IMCIM) allegedly taking monies from illegal miners.
