ASAMOAH GYAN LOSES COURT CASE AGAINST SARAH KWABLAH, 3 OTHERS

Captain of Ghana’s national team, the Black star, Asamoah Gyan has lost a long running rape, sodomy, and extortion case involving the state and 4 accused persons.

According the Kasapafmonline.com, the Circuit court in Accra presided over by Her Honour Afia Agbanu Kumador has upheld a submission of no case filed by lawyers of Sarah Kwablah and three others against Asamoah Gyan, the Black stars captain.

The Black Stars Captain dragged the four to court for conspiracy and extortion after Ms Kwablah had alleged he raped her.

But in court today Wednesday March 20,2019 the court said the prosecution had not been able to prove that a prima facie case has been established against the accused persons.

Ms Sarah Kwablah was sued together with Osarfo Anthony (Arts/Entertainment Writer), Chris Handler (Blogger) and Ekow Micah (Musician) and were arrested, charged with conspiracy to extort money and arraigned before court.

Background Of Case

Daily Guide newspaper, published a story in June, 2015, which alleged that Sarah Kwablah, a 21-year-old student, wants to blackmail Asamoah Gyan with a sex video involving the two parties. The story caught national attention and was met with mixed beliefs and fraught with several conspiracy theories.

Sarah Kwablah’s side of the story, was however not captured in the publication. According to the paper, though they reached out to her via SMS, she failed to respond at the time of going to press.

Just after the publication, Sarah Kwablah approached Osarfo Anthony – then a writer for online media GHbase.com and gave her side of the story, which had it that, Asamoah Gyan raped and sodomized her which was caught on a CCTV in her house, but Daily Guide twisted the narrative of the story as “consensual sex” (video) to favour Gyan.

Sarah furnished Osarfo with all WhatsApp chats between Gyan and her, still pictures of her bloody naked body after the rape and sodomy she sent to Gyan – which alarmed Gyan, making him apologize for what he did, and Gyan’s WhatsApp voice notes in which he can be heard loud and clear, pleading with the girl not to let anyone see or know about what happened between them.

The site (GHbase.com) investigated and published more revelations on the alleged rape and sodomy story.

Asamoah Gyan’s team contacted the site’s Editor, Chris Handler and Osarfo, and pleaded with them to stop the publication.

The same Gyans, later, turned around to accuse Osarfo and 3 others, of conspiring to extort money from Gyan with their publications. Osarfo Anthony, Chris Handler, Sarah Kwablah, and Ekow Micah, were arrested, charged with conspiracy to extort money and arraigned before court.

Accra Circuit Court 9 judge, Ms. Afia Agbanu Kumador, has set Wednesday, 20th March, 2019, to pass judgement on Ghana’s national team (Black star) captain, Asamoah Gyan’s rape, sodomy, and extortion case involving the state and 4 accused persons, namely; Osarfo Anthony (Arts/Entertainment Writer), Chris Handler (Blogger), Sarah Kwablah (Law Student), and Ekow Micah (Musician).

Court Facts On Trial After 3 Years

The trial, which promised to be over within some few months due to eagerness, assurance, and readiness from Asamoah Gyan’s lawyer and manager to the press – to substantiate their allegation and have the accused ones convicted, has been characterized with shocking and farcical drama in court over the past 3 years.

The first State Prosecutor, ACP Moses Atibilla, relieved himself from the case in strange circumstances; ushering in a Police Prosecutor who also appeared in court for a little over 3 months and handed the case to another State Prosecutor after change of government in 2017.
The current State Prosecutor, Mr. Richard Gyambibi, appeared a few times in court and vanished into thin air without any formal reason to the court. Some police prosecutors in court always held his brief.

The court has thrown out all evidences: chats, SMS, pictures, audio voices, and video, the prosecution tendered against the 4 accused. The evidences were described by defence counsels as fictitious, doctored, and maliciously ‘piece-meal’ to implicate the accused ones. The court, convinced after examining the evidences, struck them all out.

Mr. Mathew Banahene, the landlord whose house Gyan allegedly raped and sodomized Sarah Kwabla (then a tenant), testified just once and stopped going to the court. Mr. Banahene had told the media Sarah Kwablah had pleaded with him to lie to the public he heard her “screaming” when Gyan was raping her, to make her story believable so she extorts money from Gyan and reward him with $ 20,000.

Mr. Banahene fumbled ingloriously in court, conduct, that made the defence counsels respectfully prompt the judge:

“My Lord, humbly take note of his conduct. This is how false witnesses behave in the box.”

Defence counsels, Maurice Ampaw and Apanga Lamtiig, punched holes into Mr. Banahene’s wild testimony during cross-examination, describing it as “concocted.” His mouth was not sealed by the court but he stopped going to court to testify. He discharged himself.

The Police Investigator in the case, Richmond Ayayi, was interdicted from the police service for his involvement in an alleged 60 billion cedis gold theft. Though he claimed in his testimony that he’s still a police officer, he could not provide any evidence of reinstatement under cross-examination – till his mouth was sealed and discharged.

Asamoah Gyan’s manager, Samuel Annim Addo, who is the complainant in the trial, stopped going to the court over a year now. In his testimony to the court, Samuel Annim shockingly confessed that its Gyan’s lawyer, who advised him to implicate Osarfo Anthony.

Asamoah Gyan’s lawyer, Kissi Agyebeng, who was the believed last witness for the prosecution, after telling the judge in open court a year ago that he will be the next witness, has failed to appear in court to testify. He’s currently no more the lawyer for Asamoah Gyan.

Judge Closes Prosecution’s Case

The trial judge, Ms. Afia Agbanu Kumador, having patiently allowed the prosecution to drag the trial unduly for over 3 years, closed the case of the prosecution “suo motu” (on the court’s own authority):

“The Attorney General Officer, Richard Gyambibi, who is in charge of this case is absent; though the court has adjourned several times to enable him come to court to continue prosecuting this matter.

“The PW3 (Landlord) who is in the box, failed to avail himself in court for further cross examination. His evidence is hereby expunged from the records. The court ‘suo motu’ closes the case of the prosecution because despite the substantive prosecutor and the witness having been given several opportunities to come to court to prosecute this matter, they have failed to do so. The case of the prosecution is hereby closed.”

Defence Counsels’ Remarks

All 4 accused, instructed their lawyers to file a submission of no case – which was done, presented, and accepted by the trial judge. According to defence lawyer, Maurice Ampaw;

“All the accused ones did not commit any crime and so this whole trial is a waste of the court’s time, my time, my client’s time, and all who followed this case’s time! Prosecution has not been able to establish any case against any of the accused because the accused ones did not commit the alleged crime in the first place! They are all innocent from day one!

“Prosecutor, complainant, and witnesses have all ran away (laughed)! We were always present in court – daring them to face us! We were fully prepared for this trial but they ran away. I knew they will run away because they have no case.”

He added that, “There’s no need to open any defence. It will be a waste of time for the court and my clients. We want the court to pass judgement based on the submission of no case we submitted. The court accepted it and the judge has written her verdict. The press and all those who want the truth, should be in court to listen to the ruling. Thank you.”

Judge Sets Date For Passing Judgement

Come Wednesday, 20th March, 2019, Accra Circuit Court 9 will see the trial judge, pass verdict for all and sundry to know whether the suspects are guilty or innocent.

ASAMOAH GYAN IS A LIAR AND AN IRRESPONSIBLE MAN – Wife’s Friend Speaks

The marriage issue between Black Stars skipper, Asamoah Gyan and his wife Gifty is gradually pulling reactions and attention from different angles.

Stories about their marriage, DNA test proceeding to divorce have been recently featured on many headlines. Asamoah Gyan at the inception of his charges claims that his wife has been cheating on him with another man and as such requested a DNA test on their children.

The story progressed to the extent of his brother, Baffour Gyan seizing passports from the wife and her children to stop them from travelling.

Now, Gifty Gyan and her children are reported to be in UK after a court gave them the liberty to travel.

However, a woman who supposed to be a friend or probably a relative to Gifty has made some revelations about the ongoing conjugality dispute between the Gyan family.

In about 50 minutes’ video, the woman claims that all the words Asamoah Gyan drooled out during the court trials are total lies with no truth.

According to the woman, the football star is just ruining his own reputation by making false statements and allegations against his wife. Playing a brief recording as a proof, Asamoah Gyan during the court trial stated that he had not been receiving payment from his football club for about six months, indicating that he is financially sick.

I AM BROKE; I HAVE NOT BEEN PAID FOR MANY MONTHS – Asamoah Gyan Tells Court   

The skipper of the Black Stars, Asamoah Gyan has shocked the Accra Family Court hearing the case of marriage annulment between him and Gifty Gyan that he is walking around a “broke man” and has not been paid for some months now.

The court had ordered Asamoah Gyan to ensure he paid for the air ticket of his wife and all their three children traveling from the UK to Ghana for a DNA test to be conducted.

The court demanded that the children must be protected from the stigma of the ongoing court process for which reason it was suggested Asamoah Gyan booked a business or 1st class ticket for them and their mother as well as prepare an accommodation for them in Accra.

Asamoah Gyan, however, told the court he is broke and cannot afford a business or 1st class ticket because he has not been paid for some months.

This is after he told the court in August that he can only afford Ghc3000 a month for the upkeep of the 3 children and the wife who are based in the UK.

A source close to the wife has said Mrs Gyan doesn’t need her husband’s money and has since refused to go for it since August when he began paying in court.

On Asamoah’s claim to be broke to the extent that he cannot afford to pay the business class ticket for the children as it will include their mother, the court warned against delay tactics, refusing to agree with him.

The court therefore ordered him to file his full bank account details with the court in two weeks.

The Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan had earlier in 2016 accused one Sarah Kwablah with whom he had sex of trying to extort money from him.

Speaking about his sexual encounter with the girl, Gyan said he went to Sarah Kwabla’s house at Weija near the West Hills Mall in “his dirty training kits” and had sex, but because the family believes he is well to do, they want to make money out of him.

He said Sarah had joined him at the training grounds at SCC and after training, he introduced her to his colleagues as a friend.

Since Sarah’s house, located behind the West Hills Mall at Weija was not far away from the training grounds, Gyan said they went to her house in his car, whilst he was still wearing his dirty training kits.

They both enjoyed the lovemaking, he recounted but Sarah twisted the story and later accused him of rape. “We had a good time,” Gyan said.

He said Sarah and her family wanted to extort money from him and that was why they accused him of rape.

He said, if he had raped her, she wouldn’t have had the strength to walk him out and open her house gate for him to drive his car out.

Recounting how they met, Gyan said they met through social media and so they exchanged many text messages and spoke on phone a number of times

Asamoah Gyan is regarded as one of the highest paid footballers in Ghana. Shanghai SIPG of the Chinese Super league thrust Asamoah Gyan into the list of the highest paid players on the globe. He turned out to be the highest paid players in Ghana making a whopping £ 22700 a week. Currently, he emerges top on the list of the richest footballers in Ghana.

Asamoah Gyan net worth is estimated at $23 Million by Yen Ghana. Most of this net worth is from his involvement in businesses outside the pitch. He owns McCarthy Hill House, a mansion worth $3 Million and drives among many others, Phantom car which is manufactured by Roll Royce valued at £400,000. Asamoah Gyan owned a fleet of cars among them Mercedes Benz and Bugatti.

His transfer to Sunderland saw him bag a deal worth $ 13 Million. In his current club in Turkey, the salary of the Ghana captain is unknown but is believed to take home about £ 89,000 a week.

I AM ANNULLING MY MARRIAGE NOT DIVORCING – Asamoah Gyan Speaks

Black Stars captain, Asamoah Gyan, has finally broken his silence about the discourse over his marriage which has been in the news and public domain within the past week.

Gyan has admitted that his marriage is on the rocks but clarified that the process that is ongoing at the Accra High Court is not a petition for divorce but an annulment process.

Asamoah Gyan and Gifty have been together since 2003 and got married in 2013 after their second child was born. Sources close to Asamoah Gyan confirmed GhanaWeb’s story but declined to comment publicly.

What’s the Legal Difference Between Annulment and Divorce?

There are two ways to legally end a marriage – annulment and divorce. An annulment is a legal procedure which cancels a marriage between a man and a woman. Annulling a marriage is as though it is completely erased – legally, it declares that the marriage never technically existed and was never valid.

A divorce, or legal dissolution of a marriage, is the ending of a valid marriage between a man and a woman returning both parties to single status with the ability to remarry.

336 Article Footer

An annulment case can be initiated by either the husband or the wife in the marriage. The party initiating the annulment must prove that he or she has the grounds to do so and if it can be proven, the marriage will be considered null and void by the court. The following is a list of common grounds for annulment and a short explanation of each point:bigamy, forced consent, fraud, marriage prohibited by law, mental illness, mental incapacity, inability to consummate marriage, underage marriage, adultery, desertion and physical/emotional abuse.

He also cautioned media outlets and members of the public against the misinformation being peddled about his marriage.

A statement signed by his lawyer Mr Edwin Kusi Appiah and made exclusively available to Graphic Online (www.graphic.com.gh) said, “Our client has noted the level of misinformation as well as the veiled and sometimes open attempt to discredit him, his family and or his friends and therefore we write for and on behalf of Mr Asamoah Gyan on matters that have come to his attention because they have been largely publicised and talked about within the media space across the country.”

“CALL ME HIS HONOUR DR. ASAMOAH GYAN”- Baby Jet Insists

Captain of Ghana Black Stars, Asamoah Gyan insists that he should now be referred to as “His Honour Dr. Asamoah Gyan”.

The soccer star has taken to Twitter to request “with all humility” and “respectfully” that he be called “His Honour Dr. Asamoah Gyan”.

Gyan’s request follows the reported conferment of an honourary doctorate degree on Ghana’s all time international goal scorer by a Ukrainian University.

“By the Grace of God I was awarded Honorary Doctorate Degree…with all humility, respectfully call me His Honour Dr. Asamoah Gyan,” he tweeted on Saturday.

ASAMOAH GYAN’S RAPE AND SODOMY CASE GOES BACK TO ATTORNEY GENERAL

asamoah-gyan-1The Prosecutor in the ongoing trial of four suspects, Osarfo Anthony, Ekow Micah, Sarah Kwablah, and Chris Handler, accused of extorting money from Asamoah Gyan, has disclosed to court that the docket of the case has been referred to the office of the Attorney General.

This news came as a big shock to the trial judge and all in court on Thursday, 3rd November, 2016, as the case which is over a year and gradually reaching a closure, has to be referred to the Attorney General’s office.

On the day, Asamoah Gyan’s lawyer, Kissi Agyabeng, was the next witness to testify but was nowhere to be found when the case was called. When the trial judge asked where he was, the Prosecutor said, “My Lord, the docket of this case has been referred to the Attorney General’s office.”

Asked why the referral to the AG’s office without a copy of such a letter to the court, the Prosecutor could not give any answer. The judge therefore asked the Prosecutor to furnish the court with the letter come 24th November, 2016.

Lawyer Kissi’s Scheme

First witness in the case, in the person of Asamoah Gyan’s manger, Samuel Annim Addo, told the court that Osarfo Anthony was doing publications on the Gyan and Sarah Kwablah rape and sodomy allegations last year on a blog, GHBase.com, Osarfo writes for.

A witness in the case, Nii Amarh Armateifio, a worker at 3 FM at TV3, approached Osarfo and asked him to stop the publication and that whatever money the latter’s media house, will lose, they are prepared to negotiate for Asamoah Gyan to pay the publishing cost to kill the story.

Osarfo, insisted the whole proposal be put on paper and signed; something both parties agreed and did. On the day Asamoah Gyan’s manager met Osarfo and gave part of the agreed sum, the police arrested Osarfo and later charged him for extorting money from Gyan.

According to Asamoah Gyan’s manager, Sammy Annim, it is Gyan’s lawyer, Kissi Agyabeng, who directed him on the whole scheme to get Osarfo arrested. To achieve what? Lawyer Kissi could not be in court to explain himself – yet, the case has been referred to the AG.

Possible Reasons For Referring Case To AG

A number of lawyers, who were in court and have been following the case, were equally appalled at the sudden u-turn by the Prosecutor in taking the docket back to the AG. They gave reasons and possible outcomes on this latest development of the case.

“Probably, the Prosecutor is detecting that they can’t win the case or their evidences are not strong enough so they want to withdraw the case” one lawyer explained. Another lawyer also said, “It’s obvious the Prosecutor has no case. I have been following this case since last year. They have just wasted the time of the court and that of the accused.”

They further explained that if the AG does not want to continue the case, it will issue what is called Nolle Prosequi – a term in law which means “will no longer prosecute”. It amounts to a dismissal of charges by the prosecution.

 What Will Be The Fate of The Accused Persons?

The lawyers explained that once the Prosecution discontinues the case, the accused shall be discharged but that does not mean they are free in the true sense of the word- because the case was not determined or judgment was not passed. The AG can reopen the case anytime it so deem fit– because the accused have not been acquitted and discharged.

Next Hearing

The case continues on Thursday, 24 November, 2016.

Asamoah Gyan's manager Anim Addo, Lawyer Kissi Agyabeng and his brother Baffour Gyan

The legal battle between Asamaoh Gyan- captain of Ghana’s senior National soccer team and four defendants is still going on and Nkonkonsa.com brings exclusive updates.

Exclusive Nkonkonsa.com update on the ongoing trial of four suspects, Osarfo Anthony, Ekow Micah, Sarah Kwablah, and Chris Handler, accused of allegedly conspiring to extort money from Asamoah Gyan, is that, Gyan’s lawyer, Kissi Agyabeng, is the next witness to testify in court.

On Thursday, 20th October, 2016, when the case was called, lawyer Kissi Agyabeng was in court. When the trial judge asked the prosecutor if he has any other witness to testify in the case, lawyer Kissi raised his hand and said he is the next witness. He however could not testify because he had to go to another court for a case.

Lawyer Kissi’s Scheme

First witness in the case, in the person of Asamoah Gyan’s manger, Samuel Annim Addo, told the court that Osarfo Anthony was doing publications on the once viral Gyan and Sarah Kwablah rape and sodomy allegation last year.

A witness in the case, Nii Amarh Armateifio, a worker at 3 FM at TV3, approached Osarfo and asked him to stop the publication and that whatever money the latter’s media house, GHBase.com, will lose, they are prepared to negotiate for Asamoah Gyan to pay to kill the story.

Osarfo, insisted the whole proposal be put on paper and signed; something both parties agreed and did. On the day Asamoah Gyan’s manager met Osarfo and gave part of the agreed amount, the police arrested Osarfo and later charged him for extorting money from Gyan.

According to Asamoah Gyan’s manager, Sammy Annim, it is Gyan’s lawyer, Kissi Agyabeng, who directed him on the whole scheme to get Osarfo arrested. To achieve what? Lawyer Kissi shall reveal that in court in the next hearing.

Lawyer-To-Lawyer Cross-Examination

The next hearing is expected to be an interesting one; as lawyer Ampaw and lawyer Lampting Apanga, shall be drilling lawyer Kissi Agyabeng under cross-examination. A learned friend, cross-examining another learned friend will certainly be an interesting one; since they both understand each other’s language very well. Lawyer Ampaw promises to make more shocking revelations about Gyan during cross-examination of lawyer Kissi.

 Investigator Discharged

The Investigator for the case, Richmond Ayayi, who came to court to testify, has finally been discharged. The Investigator, who is no longer a worker in the Ghana Police Service due to interdiction – for allegedly stealing GHC 20 million and several bars of gold from an Indian company in Osu, told the court that he has been reinstated. Asked to bring his reinstatement letter to the court, he could not produce it till his discharge from the case.

Lawyer Ampaw Exposed Investigator

Lawyer Maurice Ampaw who is the defense counsel for the 3 accused:Osarfo Anthony, Ekow Micah, and Sarah Kwablah, exposed the Investigator by telling the court how the Investigator, doctored the voices of the four accused by stitching their voices together, so that when one listens to their conversations, it sounds or appear as though they planned evil against Gyan. He also told the court how the Investigator deleted some voice recordings which the latter knows can help Osarfo and the others prove their innocence in the trial.

Audios Thrown Out

The court has therefore thrown out the audios because they turn out to be mere pictures and a video in the court’s records, labelled as Exhibit C– which the prosecutor and the Investigator, could not identity.

The case continues on Thursday, 3 November, 2016.

ASAMOAH GYAN’S EVIDENCE IN RAPE & EXTORTION CASE THROWN OUT OF COURT

Asamoah Gyan and Maurice Ampaw
Asamoah Gyan and Maurice Ampaw

The four suspects – Osarfo Anthony, Ekow Micah, Sarah Kwablah, and Chris Handler, accused of allegedly conspiring to extort money from Asamoah Gyan, may have to heave a deep sigh of relief as the High Court, has thrown out their alleged phone conversations tendered in court by Asamoah Gyan, against them.

This revelation happened in court on Tuesday, 20th September, 2016 when the Investigator in the case, told the court that he extracted voices of the four accused from a CD– and in that voice recordings, the four can be heard loud and clear, planning on how to extort money from Gyan for allegedly raping and sodomizing Sarah Kwablah.

The Investigator told the court that he gave the said voices to the complaint in the case – in the person of Samuel Anim Addo, who is the manager of Asamoah Gyan to tender in court. Sammy, on 10th February, 2016, Samuel Anim Addo tendered the audios and was duly played in open court for all to listen.

LAWYER AMPAW EXPOSES INVESTIGATOR
Lawyer Maurice Ampaw who is the defense counsel for the 4 accused, exposed the Investigator in wrapping up his cross-examination by telling the court how the Investigator, doctored the voices of the four accused by stitching their voices together, so that when one listens to their conversations, it sounds or appear as though they planned evil against Gyan.

He also told the court how the Investigator deleted some voice recordings which the latter knows can help Osarfo and the others prove their innocence in the trial. “When you were extracted those audios, was any of the accused present or witnessed it?” Lawyer Ampaw asked the Investigator – who responded, “No my lord.” Asked to explain why, he said “nothing my lord.”

SIX MONTHS LATER
Six (6) months after the tendering of those extortion tapes which were labeled exhibit C in the court’s records, the audios turn out to be mere pictures and a video – which the prosecutor and the Investigator, could not identity what they are about.

PROSECUTION’S PLEA OVER-RULED

The prosecutor therefore argued that the court should allow them play the same audios from a laptop or upload the audios from the laptop unto a pen drive – but the trial judge ruled, “That is now possible because these new audios you claim and the laptop are not exhibits in the court’s records. They have not been tendered and cannot be tendered at this time.” The trial judge however, admitted that she recall the alleged extortion taps was played in court.

BENCH WARRANT ISSUED AGAINST EKOW MICAH
Sarah Kwablah and Ekow Micah were absent in court. Lawyer Lampting Apanga, told the court that Sarah’s absence is due to severe abdominal pains she is suffering as a result of her menses but Ekow was on his way to the court – an excuse the judge refused to accept and for that matter issued a bench warrant for his arrest.
Next Adjournment

The case continues on 4th October, 2016. The Investigator is expected to present to the court, Osarfo’s laptop, desk top computer, modem, phone, bag and others which they went to his house at 10: 30 pm to take to assist investigations– after which he will be discharged.

MAURICE AMPAW EXPOSES ASAMOAH GYAN IN COURT WITH EVIDENCE 

Asamoah Gyan
Asamoah Gyan

Legal luminary, Dr. Maurice Ampaw, who is the Defense counsel for four accused: Osarfo Anthony, Ekow Micah, Sarah Kwablah, in an ongoing case of extortion on Thursday, 1st September, 2016, disclosed to court how Asamoah Gyan asked Sarah Kwablah to abort the pregnancy for any amount of money she wants.

The lawyer made those appalling revelations in court on Thursday 1st September, 2016 when he continued with his cross-examination on the Investigator. Lawyer Ampaw read some portions of the about 100 pages printed Whatsapp chats between Gyan and Sarah.

This is one of many WhatsApp messages Maurice Apaw revealed in court

Lawyer Ampaw asked, “Would you be shocked if I reveal to you that Asamoah Gyan asked A3 (Sarah Kwablah) to abort her pregnancy for any amount of money?” The Investigator answered, “Yes my Lord.” Lawyer Ampaw continued, “Asamoah Gyan asked A3 and I read (reading from the chats), “I am not ready for a child. You are a devil. If you abort the baby and not tell anyone what I did to you, I will give you any amount of money.”

The Investigator admitted in open court that he is shocked at the revelations because he could not ascertain them in the course of his investigations. When lawyer Ampaw was about to give more graphical mind-blowing revelations from the printed chats, the trial judge asked him to hold it for Sarah to tender all the chats when she open her defense.

 CID’s Conflicting Testimony

Richmond Ayayi, the interdicted CID/Investigator who investigated into the case, finds himself in a very tight corner – as he continues to give contradictory testimony of what he told or tells the court and what the complainant in the case, Asamoah Gyan’s manager, Samuel Anim Addo, told the court.

According to Asamoah Gyan’s manager, Osarfo Anthony called Gyan to threaten and to demand money from the latter – but the Investigator, in his testimony, told the court that one of Asamoah Gyan’s boys, who work at 3 FM by name Nii Armah Armateifio, rather contacted Osarfo, pleading to kill the story with money; Osarfo is therefore vindicated on that.

Also, Asamoah Gyan’s manager tendered in court a sheet he claims Osarfo signed with the former to stop publications on Gyan’s alleged rape and sodomy – but the Investigator told the court that it’s not an agreement but a receipt. The Investigator also told the court that Osarfo gave out the receipt to Asamoah Gyan’s manager on the day he was arrested – 29th July, 2015 receiving the money.

The ever sagacious lawyer Ampaw, asked the Investigator to check the date on the receipt – after, the Investigator told the court its 23rd July, 2015. “So if A1 (Osarfo) was arrested on 29th July, 2016 and sent to police custody on that same day, how did he sign a receipt dated 23rd July, 2016?” The Investigator simply looked silly and ashamed with no answer– as audience in court laughed on.

Again, Asamoah Gyan’s manager tendered in chief, evidence of some phone conversations he claim are the supposed conspiracy conversations amongst the suspects to extort money from Asamoah Gyan. When asked under cross-examination where he got those audios from, he said the police extracted them from Osarfo’s laptop and gave to him to tender in court.

When the Investigator was asked about the same audios and how he obtained them, he told the court that he extracted them from a CD which belongs to Osarfo. According to him, Osarfo burn those audios unto a CD to be given to Asamoah Gyan’s manager. What for – he could not explain.

 Lawyer Ampaw Finished With Cross-Examination

Lawyer Ampaw finished his cross-examination on the Investigator for his 3 clients; Osarfo Anthony, Ekow Micah, and Sarah Kwablah. In his closing comments, lawyer Ampaw told the Investigator to the face: “I put it to you that Osarfo Anthony, Sarah Kwablah, and Ekow Micah did not extort any money from Asamoah Gyan! You failed to do a proper investigation into this case! You failed woefully in your investigation into this serious case! You have been untruthful to this court!”

Next Hearing

The next court hearing is on Tuesday, 6th September, 2016 – for lawyer of Chris Handler to wrap up on the cross-examination on the CID so the court discharges him.
