All is set for the prosecution of former Ghana Football Association President Kwesi Nyantakyi.
Attorney General Madam Gloria Akufo confirmed to Parliament that the former CAF vice President is now ready to face trial.
According to Madam Akufo the delay in the hearing was due to the demise of journalist Ahmed Soaule who is said to have played a role in the investigation conducted by Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
“The review of the docket, Mr. Speaker has since been completed and the presentation of the case in court is imminent”, Ms Akuffo told Parliament on Thursday [November 7, 2019] whilst answering a question submitted by the Member of Parliament for Mion, Mohammed Abdul Aziz on the case.
“On November 2, 2018, the Office of the Attorney General received a duplicate docket numbered RO.93/2018 from the headquarters of the Criminal Investigative Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service on a case entitled the Republic vs. Kwesi Nyantakyi”
Nyantakyi who is currently serving a lifetime ban from football has been charged with defrauding by false pretence and money laundering after he allegedly used the name of the President to peddle influence.
