Chinese 'sex blackmail video' should be shown publicly - Maurice Ampaw

A legal practitioner, lawyer Maurice Ampaw has suggested that the alleged sex video which Chinese female galamseyers are blackmailing powerful men with, be shown publicly.

Speaking on Newsfile on Saturday, ace broadcaster Abdul Malik Kweku Baako revealed that, some Chinese women in the business of galamsey have become untouchable because they hold secret recordings of sexual escapades with 'big men' in Ghana.

He said these women, about three of them, have video and audio recordings of powerful politicians and security officers.

Mr. Baako said “…She’s got accomplices – the other one is called Monica, the other the name has slipped me because it’s a Chinese name. Part of their strength is that they built up a certain system of blackmailing. They are women so I’m not going to use certain words, I’m not going to say certain things.

"As to when they came into town, what they intend to do, who they were, what they were, had nothing to do with galamsey, but gradually they moved from that particular trade into galamsey.

“They have video and audio recordings of people who are powerful, videos of people who we have entrusted with responsibilities to protect us as a people. That’s how dangerous the game is and that is where the strength and power of these Chinese women are coming from,” he told the host on Saturday.

Responding to the revelation in an interview with Kwame Tutu on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm, lawyer Ampaw advocated and demanded for the video to be shown publicly since this will go a long way to serve as deterrent to other officials as it was done to the judges when the bribery scandal hit the judicial service 2 years ago, questioning if the leaders involved in the Chinese galamsey sex scandal are above the law.

‘’We need to name and shame them just like we did to the judges. I am calling on the state; we should invite the Chinese nationals and interrogate the matter. Are we being fair to the judges? When the judges took bribes, Ghanaians advocated for the video to be viewed and so we should also advocate for the video to be viewed to expose the corruption by our leaders. They have destroyed this country and we need to expose them.’’
