Anas loses another court case, ordered to pay 100k


Investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas has been ordered by the High Court to pay Adolf Tetteh Adjei, a businessman, an amount of ¢60,000 for trespassing on his land in the East La Dadekotopon area of Ghana.

The court also directed Anas to pay an additional ¢40,000 as legal costs to Adjei, who accused the journalist of invading his land with the assistance of the police and land guards.

Anas was also alleged to have started building on the 2-acre land. The judge, Justice Kwame Gyamfi Osei, perpetually restrained Anas and his associates from entering the land or carrying out any construction work on it.

The court also dismissed the counterclaim filed by Anas, who was cited for contempt of court in 2017 by Adjei for defying an injunction application concerning the land in question.

Anas had claimed that the land was granted to him by a Ga family, but Adjei dismissed the claim as a ploy to deceive the court.

According to Adjei, Anas erected a signpost on the land with the inscription “Tiger Eye Property. Keep off” and employed land guards to protect his unlawful construction works.
