The dismissal of the GH₵25million defamation suit filed against Kennedy Agyapong by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas by an Accra High Court is not going to stop the TigerEyePi team from pursuing a just society.

Mr. Aremeyaw Anas after recounting the challenges he and his team have faced over the years after the High Court verdict said “the fight continues till we can create a just society for ourselves and the next generation.”

Staying unperturbed by the ruling, Anas in a statement issued on his social media added that: “We will continue to build for God and country. Nothing will stop us from fighting for mother Ghana.”

According to the award winning journo, the evidence he has always provided has been the bedrock of his work bearing in mind the impediments that awaited him prior to commencing his work over some two decades ago.

“When I started this line of work 22 years ago, I never assumed it would be an easy hope 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.”

The TigerEyePi has also in a statement described the ruling by the court as a travesty of justice.

“We find the decision of the court an unfortunate travesty of justice and very inimical to the administration of justice and fairness. If for nothing at all, Mr. Agyapong made an allegation of murder against Mr. Anas.”

According to TigerEye, their utmost disappointment in the ruling is the court’s silence on the commission of murder that Mr Agyapong’s documentary alluded against their boss.

“There is absolutely nothing contained in the said documentary which alludes to the commission of murder or an allegation of the commission of murder by Mr. Anas. Thus, that documentary cannot provide any justification for an allegation of murder in the wildest imagination. Yet the judge conveniently ignored this obvious fact and the fact that Mr. Anas is not a suspect for murder and is not under investigation for murder,” the statement contained.
