The Managing Director of the Graphic Communications Group, the parent company of Daily Graphic, Ken Ashigbey, has reiterated that they intend to prosecute the Baffour Gyan assault case to its bitter end.
Asamoah Gyan’s brother is currently embroiled in an assault case after a Graphic reporter was brutally beaten for asking the Black Stars captain a question regarding his links to the disappearance of hiplife musician Castro.
After two court dates, the case has been adjourned to 19 September after the reporter was unable to appear on the last adjourned date due to medical reasons. At the first sitting, Baffour Gyan and co-defendant Anim Addo’s legal teams revealed they would be seeking an out of court settlement.
But the Graphic MD has reiterated that the prosecution would move forward, whilst condemning the ‘big men’ in society calling on them to dismiss the criminal prosecution.
Speaking at a press event on Monday, he said that as journalists they deserved protection, and therefore nobody was going to get away with assaulting one of their own.
