Socrate Safo Calls For The Prosecution Of Anas

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

The 'enemies list' of Ghana's investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw

Anas is growing day-in and day-out; and I think it is only those who

hate the word TRUTH who will stand up against him.

Many are applauding him for exposing the judges or court officials who

were captured on video receiving monies, goats, yams and other gifts

from litigantswhose cases were pending before the courts—but 'truth

haters' thinks contrary and are calling for his prosecution.

Controversial movie producer Socrate Safo says Anas should be

prosecuted for not obliging to the rules of the Ghana Cinematography

Board before screening his findings termed as 'Ghana In The Eyes Of

God' at the Accra International Conference Center.

According to him, Anas and his Tiger Eye PI needed to seek clearance

from the Ghana Cinematography Board of Control before going ahead to

broadcast the video.

He said "the Cinematography Act 1961 (ACT 76)makes it mandatory for

Anas to have presented the contents of hisjournalistic work to the

Cinematography Board for viewingand classification before its public


"I personally went to the office of the Classification Board to lodge

a formal complaint against Anas whois screening his production in

public without classification as stipulated in the law books of Ghana.

The Secretary of the Board told me he can't stop Anas becausethat is a

special case, though it is against the law.

"I spent over thirty minutes at his office but he refused to move,

noteven when I volunteered to personally assist the office to enforce

the law. I left his office so disappointed and regretted for

mypast—the past where I assisted the Board to chastise, reprimand and

place a fine on my fellow FIPAG members (Abdul Salam and John Dada aka

Double Date), who have released different versions of their movies on

the market though it has been classified. Double D was incarcerated

for about seven days in custody before we pleaded for him," Socrate

Safo narrated to NEWS-ONE.

He continued: "As we speak, film producers are compelled to show

classification certificates before registering their films with ARSOG

or allowed to release on the market. Our films are subjected to

censorship instead of classification,an illegality under the

Constitutionof Ghana. Producers also have to pay money for this

illegality. Folks,need I say more?"

So is the 'Ghana In The Eyes Of God' too a movie?
