High Court throws out Ken Agyapong’s application against Anas

The Accra High Court today Thursday, October 11, 2018, rejected an application by Kennedy Agyapong seeking to dismiss the Gh₡25 million defamation suit against him by Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
The Court also held that the writ filed by Anas does not in any way violate the constitutional rights of Ken Agyapong as no relevant legal points have been raised to substantiate that claim.
Ken Agyapong claimed that the wearing of a mask and the concealment of his identity breached his constitutional rights under article 33 of the Constitution.

Also the Court today directed Anas Aremeyaw Anas to furnish Ken Agyapong with a more detailed address in 10 days as the current address provided is not sufficient. The Court noted that Anas uses North Labone Crescent while Kweku Baako, who also lives there, describes it as North Labone Estates in a writ he filed in the Supreme Court.

The Court further directed Ken Agyapong to file his statement of defence within 14 days.
