Fresh Trouble for Kwesi Nyantakyi
-As Anas Hands Video To CID
The Police Criminal Investigation Department (CID) is set to commence full investigation into the controversial Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ investigative piece detailing corruption claims against former Football Association president, Kwesi Nyantakyi.
This is because Anas, has submitted to the CID evidence backing what he describes as endemic corruption at the Association.
The latest development is to aid ongoing investigations of allegations of defrauding by false pretenses against Mr. Nyantakyi weeks after the President Nana Akufo-Addo had ordered his arrest after he watched excerpts of an undercover documentary in which Mr. Nyantakyi is captured engaging in some influence peddling using the name of the president.
Mr. Nyantakyi attempted to use the name of the president and vice president to induce potential investors who unknown to him, were agents of Anas’ Tiger Eye PI, to part with various sums of money.
The police ahead of its investigation on June 8 declared the GFA office a crime scene and subsequently closed it to allow investigations.
“As a result, the premises and offices of the GFA have been sealed off and remain inaccessible to the staff of GFA and the public until further notice,” the statement from the police said.
However, sharing his views on the issue over the weekend, Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide newspaper, Abdul Malik Kweku Baaku Jnr. was sure the evidence given to the police last Thursday, is to assist the police to continue investigations into the case reported against Nyantakyi by the President.
The other leg he noted, involves the petitions to FIFA and the Attorney-General to probe the deposed GFA Boss for violating several irregularities including conflict of interest, corruption, passive corruption, bribery, demanding and receiving gifts, among many others.
“What is before the Attorney-General goes beyond what the police is investigating. Now we’ve moved from the stage of talking; now it’s a stage of investigation…,” Baako disclosed.
