Lawyer Egbert Faibille Jnr has responded to Kennedy Agyapong’s allegation that he received cash in 2009 on behalf of investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas to kill a case
New Patriotic Party (NPP) MP for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong has alleged Mr Egbert Faibille Jnr took a whopping sum to drop a case.
However, in a Facebook post, he said those allegations are without merit.
“A few weeks ago, Hon. Ken Agyapong gave an audio recording of Anas interviewing an arrested fraudster sometime in 2009 to one of the radio stations in the Multimedia stable; in respect of a multi million gold scam during which interrogation, Anas was heard mentioning my name in words to the effect that as he was speaking, the scammed company had engaged me as a lawyer and that I was at the bank tracking the 419 money that they obtained as 419ers.
“I took the pain to issue a statement here on Facebook on the issue. Last Friday, Hon Ken Agyapong called me on phone and asked that I meet him to watch the video he was going to show today. I declined on the basis that the video he was going to show is only a pictoral rendition of the part of the video where Anas mentioned my name to show to the scammers that the duped company was tracking who recieved the money.
“Indeed, my work as a lawyer led to the prosecution of Hafiz, the lead scammer and his accomplices at an Accra High Court. I did not receive any payment from the scammers for and on behalf of Anas to kill the case as Hon. Agyapong is dubiously trying to portray and I challenge him and the scammers to provide any proof of any lodgment into my account from them for Anas,” the National Petroleum Commission boss posited.
