The member of Parliament for Assin Central Kennedy Ohene Agyapong says investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas should be arrested for engaging in “corrupt practices.”
According to Mr Agyapong, the “Who Watches The Watchmen” video he premiered yesterday at the forecourt of Ken City Media at Madina in Accra, shows clearly that Anas is corrupt; he took money to kill a case he investigated.
Speaking on Okay FM on Thursday morning, the MP said: “For bribing a police officer $75, 000, for bribing a prosecutor $5, 000 and taking a bribe of $100, 000, Anas should be arrested.”
“I want Anas to come out and put up a challenge that, that was not him in the video.”
According to the Mr Agyapong he wanted to establish with the video that Anas took bribe to kill a case and that he is the most corrupt person you can ever think of.
He said, Anas extort and blackmail people for money and then destroy evidence he has about corrupt activities of some individuals.
Mr Agyapong cited the case involving one Hafiz and said; that case was dismissed out of court because the prosecutor after taking $5, 000 bribe from Anas failed to turn up in court on a number of occasions.
“Therefore, I have been able to establish that he [Anas] is extortionist, blackmailer, evil and corrupt.” Mr Agyapong stated.
In the said video, a man (believed to be Anas) is seen speaking with a prosecutor negotiating on how to kill the case involving Hafiz in court.
