1st Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Joseph Osei Owusu has served notice that he’ll be suing broadcast journalist, Captain Smart for defamation.
Speaking on Ultimate FM in Kumasi, the Right Honorable Joseph Osei Owusu expressed utter disappointment the vociferous broadcaster failed to retract his claims that the legislator was deceiving chiefs in his constituency by presenting them with Dud Cheques.
He explained, “The chief of the community himself held a press conference to say you are lying. The lawyer gave out a hundred thousand cedis and that is what we are using to do this so please apologize to him. He went on to repeat it and I am deeply offended.”
He pointed out:” “I sued him and his radio station but the station has come to apologize. They spoke through someone I respect deeply and I couldn’t refuse so I agreed to discontinue against the station. For him, I insist that let him go to court and apologize so that the records will show that he admitted he was wrong,”
He said he would fight for his integrity and would go to court to have his name cleared.
