Plenary Session 2

Anas Aremeyaw Anas

Award-winning undercover investigative journalist

Anas Aremeyaw Anas is an award-winning investigative journalist in Ghana, focusing on issues of human rights abuse (esepcially child abuses) and corruption. He has become well known for using his anonymity as a tool in his undercover journalistic work. Anas maintains his anonymity by shielding his face when conducting TV interviews and making public appearances. His 2015 documentary film Ghana in the Eyes of God dramatically revealed corruption within the Ghanaian judiciary, where no fewer than 34 judges were suspended as a result of the documentary.
Anas' primary focus remains in Sub Saharan Africa and his human rights investigations deal with creating a better life and providing equal opportunities for both children and adults.
