Legal practitioner and Deputy General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Obiri Boahene, says he is finding it very difficult to understand why the Attorney-General has granted ace investigate journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, immunity from prosecution and any civil action for his latest corruption exposé of the Judiciary.
In his opinion, the leader of the Tiger Eye Investigative Team has done no wrong to be granted immunity.
“Has Anas done any wrong? No, the Attorney-General don’t need to give Anas immunity,” he said in an interview with Kwaku Owusu Agyei on Si Me So on Kasapa 102.3 FM Wednesday.
Following Anas’ exposé on the Judiciary, there are reports that some people are planning to go after his life. Others, Kasapafmonline.com understands are planning to sue him for defamation of character.
But Boahene says should anyone dare to go after the investigative journalist, that person must first overcome the wrath of the majority who are in support of his works.
“If anyone decides to fight against Anas, they must first fight and kill some of us before going ahead with plans.”
“People should not dare make attempt to sue Anas. In fact, don’t let us go there because he has done no wrong.”
The Attorney General has granted immunity to Anas, Accra-based Lawyer Ace Ankomah revealed Wednesday.
The action of the A-G, according to Ankomah, was based on Section 19 of the Whistleblowers’ Act (Act 720).
A number of 34 judges have so far been mentioned as characters in an upcoming video that captures them taking bribes in their line of duty.
Of the number, some have voluntarily returned their official vehicles while others have instantly become sick due to the shame and public mockery.
The investigative piece by Anas Aremeyaw Anas, is seeking to threaten the very sacrosanct nature of the judicial service.
In what is yet, the biggest and most revealing piece of work by the Journalist, the judges, some of whom are seasoned and well respected, are seen accepting bribes to trade off their ethos.
The Chief Justice has since taken over the matter.
