The International Federation of Journalists has sent solidarity greetings to the Ghana Journalist Association and the family of the late Ahmed Suale who was assassinated on 16th January 2019.
He worked with Tiger Eye, a highly secretive team led by one of the most famous undercover journalists in Africa, Anas Aremeyaw Anas. In Ghana and beyond, the team’s daring, anonymous reporting made them modern-day folk heroes. And it made them enemies.
As part of his 1 year anniversary which is set to take place in Accra,(International Press Center)The International Federation of Journalists and its 600,000 members in 141 countries have expressed their solidarity and greetings to Ghana
Journalists Association, partners, colleagues and family of the late Investigative Journalist.
According to the association, the assassination of our colleague Ahmed Suale cannot be allowed to become just another statistic in the grim toll of journalists killed and impunity for the assassins.
They said, the failure to properly investigate, to prosecute the killers and the intellectual authors of such crimes not only denies the family, friends and colleagues of Ahmed of justice but it emboldens all those who would seek to silence journalists, who try to draw a veil over their criminal, fraudulent or abusive behaviour. It denies citizens the right to free and independent information. It shrinks democracy.
The association and all our affiliates worldwide, stand in solidarity with you. We remain ready to take any further actions you require to support
the GJA and its partners in demanding justice and an end to impunity.
