Ace Investigative Journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas has reacted to reports that the BBC rejected a proposal he submitted to the organization calling for support for his intent to investigate alleged acts of corruption in British Institutions.
Reports that made rounds on social media and certain news portals indicated that Anas was not granted the permission to go and conduct his investigative work in Britain.
The fake news claimed Anas was stopped from investigating “The UK political class (leaders and politicians) who influence/facilitate, or benefit from the continuous looting of Africa’s resources?; Corruption and match-fixing in the English Premier League; and racial abuses in UK universities (focusing on lecturers and university authorities).
It also accused BBC of telling Anas that “the exposé will not be in the interest of the BBC and that of the UK.”
It also claimed that Anas refused to be part of the ‘Sex for Grades’ exposé in Ghana and Nigeria because he was not granted the opportunity to investigate the UK.
The journalist who is also the CEO of Tiger Eye PI posted a screenshot of one of the stories on his Facebook wall with the description: “FAKE NEWS ALERT”.
