Chantelle Kudjawu, the alleged sidechick of Eugene Arhin and the lady who once dropped the video of National Security Minister Albert Kan Dapaah, has taken Mrs Arhin to court.
She’s suing the wife of Eugene Arhin, who alleged that her husband has had an affair with Chantelle, for defaming her character.
According to a letter sent from her lawyers to lawyers of Mrs Arhin, Chantelle is a highly educated private investigator living in Canada and married with 3 children.
She claims she has never slept with Eugene Arhin and would never compromise her marriage by engaging in an affair.
She further said that Mrs Arhin’s allegation had attracted widespread attention and certainly defamed her character.
She demands a retraction of the allegation and an unqualified apology.
Last week, Ghana was thrown into an uproar after the wife of the President’s Communication Director Eugene Arhin filed for divorce.
Citing alleged infedility and abuse, she asked for Ghc 2m and half of all properties they owned – the list of which dropped the jaws of Ghanaians.
In her suit, in giving particulars of her husband’s alleged infidelity, she mentioned Chantelle as one of the people her husband has slept with.
Chantelle has now completely denied the allegation and is going on the offensive.
Read her statement below…
We are a firm of solicitors based in Accra that act for Chantel Kudjawu in connection with the identification and pursuit of identified instances of libelous statements across the internet. We have been made aware of the divorce petition your law firm filed on behalf of a client, Mrs. Gloria Arhin, on Wednesday 10th February 2021.
The allegation which will be the subject of a possible court action is in summary as follows:
Paragraph 14(a) of your client’s divorce petition filed in the High Court of Justice, was carried globally through the internet in the form of being published on online platforms from Thursday February 11, 2021 to date.
For ease of reference, paragraph 14(a) of the divorce petition states “Particulars of adultery: a. The Respondent has other women in his life with whom he has extramarital affairs, including one Chantel Kudjawu (Gertrude Gbajo) whom the Respondent continues to have extramarital affairs with.”
Had your law firm undertaken even the most basic due diligence assessment as to the veracity of your client’s assertion, you would have realised that she was just playing to the gallery and her statement was not true.
Our client denies that she has ever engaged in the activities alleged by Mrs. Arhin. This defamatory statement has by the 15th February 2021 attracted thousands and thousands of comments, majority of which are negative and judgmental about my client despite the fact that she has not engaged in a s*xual manner with Mr. Arhin.
Do note that our client is a principled and law-abiding professional, who works as a private investigator in Canada, with three children who does not compromise on the integrity and dignity of her marriage. She also has a Master’s Degree in Political Science from a reputable University in Canada, and holds a Certificate from Harvard University.
Mrs. Arhin’s defamatory words have meant that our client has been publicly ridiculed, scandalised and held in contempt by countless strangers in an unprecedented manner. This serious, untrue and highly defamatory statement toward our client is malicious falsehood. Furthermore, this defamatory comment has been being communicated to thousands of people throughout the world, posing a serious threat to the reputation of our client.
In order to protect our client’s interests, we are considering proceedings against Mrs. Arhin in the High Court. These proceedings would seek remedies including but not limited to the following:
• Substantial damages
• A perpetual injunction restraining Mrs. Arhin from further publishing any defamatory material about our client; and
Within 24 hours (from 10 am) of the date of this letter, we hope that Mrs. Arhin will be better advised to agree to do the following:-
• remove from her divorce petition in its entirety the defamatory statement to prevent further harm to our client
• produce an apology and a declaration that the allegations referred to are false and defamatory and cause such apology to be published in an unqualified retraction and an apology on Ghanaweb, Yen, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Daily Graphic (online) with the same prominence the defamatory words received.
We await your response by return.
