An Accra High Court has dismissed a complaint filed against ace undercover investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas, by the former Director-General of the National Sports Authority Robert Sarfo-Mensah.
After the premiering of the Number 12 exposé which caught several football officials in a web of corruption, Sarfo-Mensah, then boss of the NSA hauled Anas and his Tiger Eye PI before the High Court, Accra.
He alleged that Anas had defamed and violated his human rights. The said writ was filed on 10th October, 2018.
However in the judgment read by Gifty Agyei Addo last Friday upheld the legal arguments advanced by lawyer Agyebeng and accordingly struck out the case against Anas and his Tiger Eye PI.
The judge again ordered Sarfo-Mensah to pay GHC 1, 000. 00 to the defendants.
Anas in June 2018, premiered a video which exposed corruption at various levels of Ghana football. The video among other things exposed over 80 referees and match officials receiving monies to fix matches.
