Headlines CromwellGray LLP is my legal rep; I don't know any lawyer Kwame Gyan — Anas refutes Nyantakyis bribery allegations
APR 2, 2024 LISTEN

Renowned Ghanaian investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas and his Tiger Eye PI firm have categorically denied allegations made by former Ghana Football Association (GFA) president Kwesi Nyantakyi that he paid a $100,000 bribe to suppress the explosive Number 12 documentary.

In a statement released on April 2, Tiger Eye PI described Nyantakyi's claims as "preposterous."

It noted that they have "consistently retained the legal representation of CromwellGray LLP, situated in Cantonments, Accra" for all matters relating to Anas' journalistic works, including the Number 12 documentary.

"Neither Tiger Eye P.I. nor Anas Aremeyaw Anas engaged the services of a lawyer named Kwame Gyan from the University of Ghana. At all material times, including before, during, and after the production of the Number12 documentary, Tiger Eye and Anas have exclusively retained the legal representation of CromwellGray LLP," the statement said.

Tiger Eye PI challenged Nyantakyi to provide evidence of his alleged interactions with the supposed lawyer or take legal action.

“Should Mr. Nyantakyi's claims hold substance, we challenge him to pursue legal action against Lawyer Kwame Gyan, including lodging a petition with the General Legal Council, to substantiate his allegations," the statement added.

Anas and Tiger Eye said the idea that such an expensive documentary, advertised extensively on BBC, could be suppressed by a $100,000 bribe was "shocking" and "indicative of naivety."

They noted that Nyantakyi remains banned from football for corruption by FIFA and also faces ongoing criminal trial in Ghana for corruption and fraud.

His claims, according to Tiger Eye PI, is an attempt to restore his credibility as he expresses intention to run for the vacant Ejisu parliamentary seat amid critics citing his corruption past.
