Investigative Journalist with Tiger Eye PI, Anas Aremeyaw Anas has sued the Despite Group of Companies together with two employees with its subsidiary, Okay FM, for defamation.
This comes after he sued the Multimedia Group Limited as well as three of its workers for the same reason.
The employees of Okay FM are identified as Kwame Nkrumah and Kwame Amoh.
The suit claimed that the comments, which were made on March 7, 2019, during the show, tarnished the image of Anas.
Anas argued that Despite broadcasted and published and or caused to be broadcasted on Okay FM defamatory comments against him and his associates during a discussion on investigative documentaries on their programme entitled Ade Akye Abia.
“…the plaintiff claims against the defendants, jointly and severally, for damages for libel contained in the publication endorsed on the writ of summons by way of an attachment and particularized costs, including lawyer fees”, the suit stated.
The suit stated that Anas was described as having promoted “lawlessness” and was “an evil and odious person who is a nation wrecker.”
Anas was also accused of “extorting money from the President of Ghana, extorting GHc500,000 from an identifiable person, extorting money from persons through threats of libel and slander, extorting money from persons through blackmail as well as engaging in bribery and corruption.”
But Anas insists in his suit that “the words complained of were utterly false” and were broadcasted “to create disaffection for him and to bring him into odium in the eyes of right thinking members of the Republic and the global community.”
