Appear in court and testify without a mask – Supreme Court orders Anas

In a ruling today, the Supreme Court quashed order of the High Court 2, Criminal Division which granted permission to Anas Aremeyaw Anas to testify on camera in the case against Kwesi Nyantakyi.

But on appeal by lawyers of Nyantakyi, the Supreme Court ruled in favour of the former football chief and asked Anas to appear in flesh to be cross-examined in open court by Nyantakyi.

By this decision of the Supreme Court Anas Amereyaw Anas must give evidence in open court.

Nyantakyi, who was rising to the very top of global football administration, had to step aside from his roles with Caf including as 1st vice-president, the most senior figure at the confederation after its former president, Ahmad.

Nyantakyi and other football officials from around the continent were secretly filmed by undercover reporters receiving cash gifts as part of a documentary by controversial Ghanaian investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

Nyantakyi is fighting his case against the controversial journalist in a bid to clear his name.

The former Ghana FA chief is serving a global ban following the documentary.
