“The police are still probing the matter and at the appropriate time, they will surely come out with their findings. The security agencies are still conducting investigations and I believe prosecution will surely be initiated,’’ – he said.
The premiering of the undercover investigative movie, dubbed “When Misconduct and Greed Become the Norm,” lived up to its billing as an explosive piece when it aired on June 6, 2018, in Accra.
It attracted hundreds of patrons who cheered, booed, laughed and screamed at the scenes.
The documentary had to be paused several times to cool the “tempers” of viewers who were visibly shocked at the ease with which the investigative team of Anas Aremeyaw Anas bribed more than 70 referees, match commissioners, officials of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), officials of the National Sports Authority (NSA) and the Ministry of Sports with sums as low as GH¢300 to influence the award of red cards, yellow cards, penalties and visa deals.
Money paid to the officials ranged from GH¢300 to GH¢5,000.
The President of the GFA, Mr Kwasi Nyantakyi, was paid the highest amount of $65,000 for assuring the investors, who later turned out to be Anas’s team members, of his readiness to get them good sponsorship deals and juicy contracts in government.
Majority of the recipients of the bribes showed signs of excitement. One particular referee prayed for the Anas team and blessed them several times.
A former Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, Mrs Marietta Brew Appiah-Opong pronounced earlier that no one could go to court based on the Anas video alone.
