An application by the Assin Central Member of Parliament, Kennedy Agyapong seeking to dismiss the ¢25m defamation suit against him by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas has been dismissed.

An Accra High Court dismissed the suit and held that the writ filed by Anas does not in any way violate the constitutional right of the maverick MP.

The court in its ruling said no relevant legal points have been raised to substantiate the claim of Kennedy Agyapong.

The controversial politician claimed in his writ that the wearing of a mask and the concealment of his identity breached his constitutional rights under article 33 of the Constitution.

But the Court directed Anas to furnish the MP with a more detailed address in 10 days as the current address provided is not sufficient.

 

The Court also directed Kennedy Agyapong to file his statement of defence within 14 days.
