Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Gloria Akufo has told Parliament, review of docket on ‘The Republic versus Kwesi Nyantakyi’ has been completed and the presentation of a case in court is imminent.

According to the AG, on the November 2 last year, her office received a duplicate docket numbered PRO.93/2018 from the Headquarters of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service on the case.

Under the cover of a letter dated 01 November, 2018 and bearing reference number CID/AR.238/2018/17.

The AG made this revelation on the floor when MP for Mion, Mohammed Abdul-Aziz wanted to know the status of the investigation of the complaint made by the President against former President of the Ghana Football Association, Kwesi Nyantakyi.

The letter indicated that the former GFA Chairman had been secretly recorded by undercover private investigator, Tiger Eye P.I engaged in corrupt conduct.

After initial review of the docket by a team of prosecutors, the police were requested on the 10th of January 2019 to furnish the office with some further documents to facilitate the completion of the review.

Additionally, the AG told the House Tiger Eye in March 2019 was requested to furnish the team with an updated report covering all videos submitted to the Office of the Attorney-General.

Eventually, the document requested from the police as well as the undated report from Tiger Eye were submitted by the police in May 2019.

Unfortunately, Mohammed Suale, a member of the Tiger Eye and a principal witness with who the prosecutors directly engaged in the preparation of the case was tragically killed on the 16th May this year. The death of the journalist has unavoidably stalled the preparation of the case.
