Revoke Anas’ law license – Ken Agyapong writes to General Legal Council

Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Mr Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has dragged undercover journalist and lawyer, Anas Aremeyaw Anas to the General Legal Council (GLC).

Mr Agyapong is complaining that Anas misconducted himself professionally as a lawyer in a manner that bordered on “moral turpitude”, therefore, must be disbarred from practicing as a lawyer.

Disbarment is the removal of a lawyer from a bar association or the practice of law, thus, revoking his or her law license or admission to practice law.

In a complaint letter dated July 5, 2018 addressed to the Chairperson of the Disciplinary Committee of the General Legal Council, Mr Agyapong is asking that disciplinary action should be taken against Anas as a lawyer.

The vociferous MP has been on a campaign against Anas insisting that his modus operandi of entrapping people should not be countenanced by Ghanaians.

Anas on his part has dragged Mr Agyapong, to court for defaming him and asking the High Court to award aggravated damages to the tune of GH¢25 million arising from defamatory materials published by the MP.

The MP has, in the past weeks, been publishing materials in his bid to discredit the investigative journalist, who has released an a piece on the rot in Ghana football.

Displeased with the MP’s actions, Anas has, through his lawyer, Mr Kissi Agyebeng, sued Mr Agyapong for the award of general damages for defamation in the defendant’s publications.

A sports journalist, Listowell Yesu Bukarson, has been granted the lawful attorney to stand in for Anas.
