Supreme Court throws Justice Dery out over Anas’ identity

Justices Paul Dery Justices Paul Dery

A five member Supreme Court Panel presided over by Justice Julius Ansah has dismissed an application by embattled high court justices Paul Dery and Mensah Logo challenging the capacity of Tiger Eye PI to petition the president for their removal.

The applicants were asking the court to declare that Tiger Eye PI is not licensed to carry out private investigations under the laws of Ghana.

They were also seeking a declaration that the audio-visual recordings and the transcripts thereof were fraudulently and unlawfully obtained by Tiger Eye PI.

The Supreme Court Justices in an unanimous decision clarified that the petitioner Anas Aremeyaw Anas swore an oath in a capacity as a journalist.

He is further seeking a declaration that Tiger Eye PI has no capacity to file a petition for his removal from office on the grounds that the company is not a registered entity and, therefore, has no legal personality.

This latest suit against Tiger Eye PI, which has already been sued by some implicated judges and a court clerk, comes against the backdrop of allegations by a former Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, Mr Martin Amidu, that Tiger Eye PI is not a registered entity.

Mr Amidu and owner of Tiger Eye PI , Mr Anas Aremeyaw Anas, who is also an undercover investigator were in the news arguing whether or not the company was registered.

Anas denied claims by Mr Amidu that Tiger Eye PI is unregistered.
