Anas to testify in open court against Nyantakyi
The High Court has made a ruling regarding the testimony of Anas Aremeyaw Anas, a renowned investigative journalist, in the case involving the former President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwasi Nyantakyi. According to the court’s decision, Anas will be required to testify openly, providing his account and evidence in front of the court and the public.
However, due to security concerns and the need to protect Anas’ identity, he will be permitted to wear a mask during his testimony.
This measure aims to prevent potential retaliation or harm towards Anas, considering the sensitive nature of the case and his role as an investigative journalist involved in exposing corruption.
In a fair compromise, the court has also granted Nyantakyi the opportunity to view Anas’ face in a private and confidential setting, likely within chambers, before Anas takes the stand. This arrangement ensures that Nyantakyi has the opportunity to recognize and identify Anas, maintaining the integrity of the proceedings while safeguarding Anas’ anonymity in the public realm.
The court’s decision strikes a balance between protecting the safety and well-being of Anas, who plays a crucial role in exposing corruption through his investigative work, and ensuring a fair and transparent legal process for all parties involved in the case.
