The case between the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the KOANS Estate, Kofi Anokye and the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Ghana National Petroleum Corporations (GNPC), Dr. K.K Sarpong seems to have no end as accused demand complainant to proceed with a case currently put on hold by the complainant
The GNPC boss according to information took the KOANS estates boss to court for defamation of character but failed to appear in court for proceedings after realizing he has no case.
Speaking with this reporter in an interview, Mr. Anokye disclosed that the lawyers of Dr. Sarpong fumbled in court after he (Mr. Anokye) presented his evidence.
“I want the GNPC boss to proceed the case at the law court to prove to the entire worl;d that he is not guilty of my claims or apologize to me for wasting my time” he stated.
The KOANS CEO, last year reported the GNPC boss to the Tesano Police for further investigations into the allege $2000 dollars given to him (Dr. K.K Sarpong) as a contract facilitating fee.
The CEO of the Koans action to him was in line with the GNPC boss breach of contract between the two of them for a contract awarding.
Mr. Anokye, disclosed that the GNPC boss demanded an amount of GH¢10,000 to facilitate his transportation and communication in a US$50 million deal with an Iranian company and one Ernest Thompson of IMG (UK).
Upon further investigations, Sgt. Akunor of the Tesano police station, confirmed that they have received a report from Mr. Anokye and are currently investigating the case.
The GNPC boss, recently sued the KOANS building and solutions CEO and five others for publishing a false article about him.
In a writ filed at the Accra High Court, the plaintiff averred that, the developer addressed a letter to the then acting national chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Freddie Blay, that he demanded a total sum of GH¢10,000 to facilitate his transportation and communication company in a US$50 million deal with an Iranian company and one Ernest Thompson of IMG (UK).
He averred that, the defendant company and its CEO, claimed that they had met with him to discuss a potential business that sought to establish a business relationship with the Tema Oil Refinery (TOR), which he was once the managing director.
He stated that, the plaintiff in the said letter claimed that he was paid $2,000 for the GH¢10,000 facilitation fee he charged, a statement the defendants knew as not true.
Attached to the suit are one Joseph Bediako, Isaac Kyei Andoh, two media houses, moderngahana.com, and ghananews24.com, which published the information on the said alleged meeting without verifying its authenticity.
Dr. Sarpong, said that he neither knew anything about the alleged IMG (UK) nor any Iranian company, which was mentioned in the letter.
Part of the plaintiff’s particulars touch on claiming and publishing that he allegedly received from Kofi Anokye all documentation in respect of Koans Building Solution’s alleged transaction, as well as contact details of a certain Iranian company, whose name was not even disclosed in the letter dated February 13, 2018.
He asserted that the defendants falsely alleged and published that he fraudulently requested an amount of GH¢10,000 from Kofi Anokye and received $2,000, which was offered for the alleged purposes of his communication and transportation, in furtherance of Koans Building Solution’s alleged pursuit of a gain of over US$50 million.
Meanwhile, all attempts to speak with the GNPC boss proves futile.
