2. Tiger Eye PI dismisses all accusations together with extortion and blackmail in opposition to Anas Aremeyaw Anas. These accusations are imagined and fabricated, with no foundation in actuality. Tiger Eye PI factors out that these are antics by the perpetrators of corruption and their collaborators, to distract from the details of our latest publicity. It additionally begs the query: why do such accusations solely come up when there may be an publicity?

3. In mentioned video Mr. Kwesi Nyantakyi’s spouse is seen and heard, someday in 2018 on Metro TV, claiming that some individuals had contacted her husband to pay an amount of cash ($100,000) as a way to remove grievance #12. When this accusation was first made, Anas Aremeyaw Anas challenged Mr. Nyantakyi and his spouse to sue him or whoever did what they allege, or report him to the police for extortion in the event that they consider his outdated accusation is true (https :/ /cell.ghanaweb.com/GhanaHomePage/NewsArchive/Sue-me-for-extortion-blackmail-if-I-asked-for-100k-bribe-Anas-dares-Nyantakyi-s-wife-703414). Nonetheless, you will need to be aware that she, in addition to the trumpeters of the mentioned accusation, don’t point out anybody.
Identify. As we communicate, Mr. Nyantakyi is on trial for fraud and corruption. If this accusation had been true, it will be absurd for him to make no effort to convey the bribery calls for to justice, particularly when by way of Tiger Eye’s anti-corruption operations, he has misplaced his job.

4. You will need to be aware that the champion of those spurious accusations, Mr. Kennedy Agyepong (additionally seen within the video), who posted the images of the late Ahmed Suale on his NET 2 TV previous to his assassination, is within the minimize with Anas. Aremeyaw Anas in a defamation lawsuit. When he questioned Anas’s skilled integrity as a lawyer on the Basic Authorized Council, he was dealt a defeat. Once more, he has already misplaced the primary spherical of defamation swimsuit in opposition to him by Mr. Abdul Malik Kweku Baako, the place the court docket discovered his accusations to be baseless and empty.

5. Within the video, components present false claims by Mr. Charles Problem. Tiger Eye extensively refuted his false claims lately. (https://www.myjoyonline.com/full-text-anas-vs-charles-bissue-on-galamsey-deals/). We reiterate that these claims of calls for for bribes to drop the Galamsey fraud publicity are false and with out advantage.

6. It’s attention-grabbing that at any time when these claims are made, the complainants don’t title particular names or current proof to help their claims. In addition they don’t take daring steps to report such issues to regulation enforcement businesses to be handled by regulation. This could alert all observers that these claims are gratuitous and must be handled as such.

7. Within the video, a person with pigtails, who one other claimed to be Anas, was being accused of land grabbing. For humanitarian causes, we want to reiterate that the circulation of movies of individuals and their labeling as ANAS may put harmless individuals in danger, as they might be trapped and attacked in case of mistaken identification. As well as, we want to placed on file that Anas Aremeyaw Anas, CEO of Tiger Eye, has NEVER forcibly or illegally disadvantaged anybody of his land and has not been concerned in an altercation as claimed. No court docket has discovered him responsible of unlawful land expropriation.
Tiger Eye is absolutely conscious that this specific accusation is being defended by one Kweku Annan who was fired from NET 2 for skilled misconduct. Suffice to say that Kweku Annan was uncovered by Tiger Eye demanding bribes to inform lies about Anas Aremeyaw Anas (https://www.adomonline.com/fallout-from-12-radio-broadcaster-admits-take-money-accuses-anas -in-bad-faith/). Tiger Eye subsequently took him to the Nationwide Media Fee (NMC) to redress his allegations (https://www.graphic.com.gh/sports activities/sports-news/video-anas-petitions-nmc-to-investigate- hot-fm-presenter-for-unethical-media-practice.html), the place he was unable to substantiate a single declare, resulting in the issuance of a restraining order in opposition to him by the NMC. We as soon as once more problem anybody with proof of wrongdoing within the nature of unlawful land taking to proceed to the suitable state company for additional motion.

8. To reiterate unequivocally, Tiger Eye PI has NEVER, both by way of its brokers or third events, demanded cash from individuals detained by Tiger Eye PI in reference to our work, together with complaints by Quantity 12 and Galamsey Fraud for that the tales are fallen. Per inside working procedures and integrity mechanisms inside Tiger Eye, it’s IMPOSSIBLE for any of our brokers to demand bribes to publish a narrative. The sheer frivolity and inconsistency of those allegations have been uncovered numerous instances by Tiger Eye PI.

9. Tiger Eye PI has, all through its investigations, taken further steps to help the related state authorities in investigating the outcomes of our investigations. Anas Aremeyaw Anas has testified in court docket, has been cross-examined and has been the topic of a number of trials for his works. None of those lawsuits, from greater than 20 years of service devoted to uncovering crimes, have been profitable.

10. We problem anybody who has proof of the crime in opposition to Anas Aremeyaw Anas, to make it accessible to the corresponding state authorities with out hesitation.

11. Tiger Eye PI stays steadfast in its dedication to struggle corruption and crime utilizing covert operations (Anas Precept), and completely nothing, be it threats or baggage of spurious allegations, will cease us from holding obligation bearers accountable within the curiosity of God and Nation.
