Investigative Journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas says his defamation suit against Member of Parliament for Assin North, Kennedy Agyepong, is far from over.
In a short video the investigative journalist uploaded on Facebook, Anas says he will be seeking an appeal on Justice Eric Baah’s pronouncements on the case.
Mr Aremeyaw Anas was of the view that the pronouncement of the judge appeared to be a criminal pronouncement against him although he was a plaintiff in the defamation suit.
“Although the news about the dismissal of our defamation suit against the Member of Parliament was unexpected, I disagree with the judge’s reason based on law and the facts.
“My team of lawyers and I have carefully studied the judgement delivered by the court and we are unanimous that the judge made an overreach and descended into the arena and made a criminal pronouncement about me as if I was standing a criminal trial,” he said.
While acknowledging the threats that accompany his job, the Investigative Journalist said he has worked hard to always serve in the interest of the country.
“When I started this line of work 22 years ago, I never assumed it would be an easy road. Yet it is the evidence in my work and the commitment to truth and justice that has always led and prevailed against all the forces that have worked to pull us down.
“My team and I remain unwavering, despite the attacks on us from the death of Ahmed, to the constant threats on our lives. We remain guided by the principles of fairness, integrity and courage as we continue our investigation in the public interest.”
