‘Number 12’ culprits will be prosecuted’

The Deputy Youth and Sports Minister, Perry Okudzeto, has assured Ghanaians that prosecution will soon begin to ensure persons who were implicated in the Anas ‘Number 12’ expose, are brought to book.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Rainbow Radio, the Deputy Minister said, the police are still probing the matter and at the appropriate time, they will surely come out with their findings.

He was optimistic the measures adopted by government will help sanitise football administration in Ghana.

“The security agencies are still conducting investigations and I believe prosecution will surely be initiated,’’ he added.

The Attorney General, Madam Gloria Akuffo, in a recent interview disclosed she has not received any docket to prosecute any person captured in the Anas video.

“I have not received any docket for prosecution. It will be recalled that when the issues started, the CID started a probe. The probe is still ongoing and when they forward anything to me, I will look at it,’’ she explained.

The investigative team of Anas Aremeyaw Anas bribed more than 70 referees, match commissioners, officials of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), officials of the National Sports Authority (NSA) and the Ministry of Sports with sums as low as GH¢300 to influence the award of red cards, yellow cards, penalties and visa deals. -rainbowradioonline.com
