Award-winning undercover journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, has hinted at releasing ‘Part 2’ of his ongoing documentary on illegal mining dubbed, “Galamsey Fraud” this week.
The documentary is aimed at naming and shaming selfish and powerful individuals stabbing President Nana Akufo-Addo and Ghanaians in the back, in the fight against illegal mining, popularly known as ‘galamsey’.
Sources close to the Tiger Eye PI team have given hints that the yet-to-be released documentary, is essentially focused on some top officials in government, including ministers of state, politicians and security personnel.
These individuals, who are supposed to be seen helping the president win the fight against illegal mining, were rather caught red-handed on secret video tapes, by the lenses of Anas and his crew, receiving bribes at the blindside of the president, to circumvent measures put in place to curb illegal mining and, allowing a company to mine.
Details about the documentary will soon be released in the public domain in the course of week.
It will be recalled that the earlier secret filming captured the secretary to the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining (IMCIM), Mr Charles Cromwell Bissue, being given various cash sums amounting to GHS35,000 at three meetings, through one Andy Owusu, a connection man, to help circumvent the process of renewing the mining license for ORR Resources Enterprise.
Bissue has since stepped aside for investigation to go on into the case.
