The dossier of corruption evidence produced by controversial lawmaker for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong against renowned investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas has continued to lose credibility each passing day as counter-evidence thrashes what he puts forward.
On Monday June 4, 2018, the lawmaker played an audio on Accra-based Adom Fm in which Anas Aremeyaw Anas was caught on tape speaking with others whose identities cannot be ascertained about the transfer of thousands of dollars.
The name of Egbert Faibille Jnr private legal practitioner and current Chief Executive Officer of Petroleum Commission was mentioned.
But setting the records straight on his Facebook page, he denied that the contents of the said tape were for corruption purposes to the benefit of the journalist.
He said” My attention has been drawn to an audio tape going around in which my name is mentioned by Anas Aremeyaw Anas as following some money at a bank. Well, the background is that in 2009, one Hafix of Hafred Security Services Ltd was arrested for defrauding a Dubai Company of US$ 5.7 million in a gold scam”.
“My services were retained as a lawyer by the duped company to ensure prosecution of Hafix and his accomplices. Anas Aremeyaw Anas was the one who was engaged by the duped company to track down Hafix and his accomplices which he did. The audio going round is an interrogation of two or so of Hafix’s accomplices by Anas which led to the arrest of Hafix”.
“Hafix was subsequently prosecuted by the Attorney General at an Accra High Court presided over by Justice Charles Quist. The tape cannot therefore be evidence of any bribery. The screenshots here will serve as a useful guide to those who may want to google the arrest of Hafiz”
