The Minister for Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has indicated that just as the Tiger Eye PI team and its boss, Anas Aremeyaw Anas were able to furnish law enforcement agencies with the raw and unedited version of the video on the Judges scandal, the team should equally be able to furnish the police and the BNI with the raw footage of the latest video on corruption in the Mining sector.
According to him, the rationale behind the request for the raw unedited video is to aid the law enforcement agencies which will be commissioned by government to investigate allegations of corruption against some government appointees who were captured in the latest video released by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas and his company Tiger Eye PI.
‘’This is nothing new. If you recall Tiger Eye and Anas were able to furnish the law enforcement agencies with the Judges footage. So this is no exception, it something they have been doing’’ he said.
The Minister opined further that in terms of tendering the video in evidence, it is not possible to tender in the edited version which has been turned into a documentary, but that it is the raw unedited version that will be admitted and accepted as evidence.
He said investigators will be looking out for acts such as soliciting, extortion or bribery in the footage and to find out if indeed the appointees mentioned are culpable as being claimed.
‘’Anyone found extorting, soliciting or even bribing another person in the video would not be shielded. They will all be made to face the full force of the law’’ Mr. Oppong Nkrumah added.
He also solicited the assistance and support of the general public in terms of providing information to aid in the investigations.
