A seasoned attorney by the name of Captain (rtd) Nkrabeah Effah Dartey has cautioned Tiger Eye PI about the comments it is making against the judgment of Justice Eric Baah in the aftermath of its Chief Executive Officer’s case against lawmaker Kennedy Ohene Agyapong.
Dartey is a retired military officer who served in the Ghanaian military.
The decision regarding the GH25 million defamation suit that was brought against the Member of Parliament for Assin Central was handed down by Justice Baah on Wednesday, March 15.
Anas Aremeyaw Anas, a renowned investigative journalist, was found guilty and sentenced to pay GH50,000 in damages by the judge, who ruled that the journalist’s claims were “without merit.”
However, the judgment was immediately questioned by his company, Tiger Eye PI, which issued a statement immediately after calling it a “travesty of justice.”
Anas’s words after the conclusion of the case he brought against Ken Agyapong were: “This is a travesty of justice.”
But speaking on Ghana tonight Capt. (rtd.) Effah Dartey expressed shock that Anas’ lawyers are passing comments on the judgment on tonight’s episode of TV3, which aired on Wednesday.
“I am surprised that Tiger Eye is talking like this because Tiger Eye, as a team of lawyers, should know that if a judge makes any ruling or any decision and you are not comfortable with it, you have the right to appeal to the Court of Appeal or a higher bench,” he said.

According to him, it is already too late for the journalist, and the only option that is still available is to appeal the judge’s decision.
He did not mince his words when he said, “Tiger Eye should shut up.”
