David Annan, state Prosecutor’s all over the world cut deals with even criminals and lessen their sentences etc. In this case the evidence is overwhelming and the state has no choice than to work with Anas and his team to enable them prosecute the alleged culprits effectively.- Lawyer Agbenyega, Accra!
Legal practitioner David Annan has challenged the basis for which the Attorney General supposedly gave immunity to investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas in his corruption expose’ in Ghana’s judiciary.
According to him, the AG has no right to grant any such immunity since the journalist does not work for the State.
The attorney general is reported to have granted immunity to Anas and his team whose investigations have exposed massive corruption in the judiciary.
Commenting on the development, Mr. Annan told Moro Awudu on Accra-based Radio XYZ Monday that the matter must be considered carefully.
“I am wondering if the AG has such rights to grant immunity to a private citizen if he is not an officer of the state. I don’t think anybody has the right to grant such privileges to someone, not even the security agencies can confer things like that on people,” he stated.

One of the high profile judges, Justice John Ajet-Nassam, a High Court Judge, who freed Alfred Agbesi Woyome in the controversial Gh¢51 million judgment debt scandal was videotaped and audio recorded in separate conversations with suspects or persons acting as agents of suspects before him to compromise big cases.
Other judges are Human Rights Court judge Kofi Essel Mensah and Charles Quist; a High Court Judge.
The over two years painstaking investigations by ace investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas will be released in full in the coming weeks.
