Kwesi Pratt jnr has slammed the media for what he termed as unfair public commentary on the invitation of Anthony Abayifa Karbo over Anas’ latest exposé.
Huffing and puffing in his contribution to a discussion on the matter, he established that discussions on Mr. Karbo in connection with the probe of beleaguered GFA boss, Kwesi Nyantakyi appears to demonise him and he is not happy about it.
The veteran journalist stated that he is furious over treatment being meted out to the deputy minister by the Criminal Investigative Department of the Ghana Police Service.
“I am furious. We’re creating the impression that Anthony Karbo is a criminal suspect. On what basis are people making such commentaries, what crime has he committed to deserve such treatment?” Angry Kwasi Pratt questioned during an interview on Accra-based Peace FM on Wednesday.
He has, thus, called on critics of Anthony Karbo to desist from creating the impression that Karbo is a criminal suspect.
He added that the deputy roads minister has not been charged by any competent court, therefore, it is unfair to trial him in the media.
The President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi, who is currently under CID investigations, for allegedly defrauding by false pretense in an initial comment has named Anthony Karbo in connection with the exposé.
This has earned him an invitation to respond to police invitation in the investigations on the matter.
Though the NPP man on Monday honoured the invitation of the CID in the company of his lawyer, Gary Nimako, he is said to have spent 20 minutes in writing his statement and responding to some queries.
Meanwhile, a section of the Ghanaian public has taken to various social media platforms to express mixed feelings about the alleged involvement of the deputy minister in the GFA scandal.
