Court slaps Asamoah Gyan with GHç1m damages

Asamoah Gyan has been ordered by the Accra High Court to pay GHC 1 million in damages to Ghanaian journalist Osarfo Anthony for malicious prosecution.

In 2015, Osarfo was accused of conspiring to extort money from Gyan and his manager, but he was acquitted in 2019.

Subsequently, Osarfo sued Gyan and his manager for maliciously prosecuting him and today, he won the lawsuit. Osarfo expressed his satisfaction with the verdict, stating that it cleared his name and compensated him for the damages he suffered.

The case stemmed from allegations made by a woman named Sarah Kwabla, who claimed to have been raped and sodomized by Gyan. Osarfo published a story after receiving evidence from Ms. Kwabla and hearing Gyan’s denial through his lawyer.

There is a good reason why you should support the African Editors. Not everyone can afford to pay for news right now. That is why we keep our journalism open for everyone to read, including in Ghana. If this is you, please continue to read for free. But if you are able to, then there are three good reasons to support us today.

1. Our quality, journalism is a scrutinising force at a time when the rich and powerful are getting away with more and more.

2. We are independent and have no billionaire owner pulling the strings, so your money directly powers our reporting.

3. It doesn’t cost much, and takes less time than it took to read this message.

Help power the African Editors' journalism for the years to come, whether with a small sum or a larger one. If you can, please support us on a monthly basis from just 1 Ghana Cedi through mobile money number: 0599896099/ +23359989609 and you can be rest assured that you’re making a big impact every single month in support of open, independent journalism. Thank you.
