Ace investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas has written to 17 Ghanaian journalists to defend themselves for being captured in his latest investigative piece regarding corruption in Ghana football.

Some17 referees in the Ghana premier league have also received their respective letters for appearing in the tape for corruption. One of such referees captured by Anas’s Expose is Cape Coast based referee, Kennedy Bentil who doubles as instructor for Central Regional Referees Association of Ghana.

In an interview with ATL FM’s head of sports, Asante Fokuo, referee Kennedy Bentil revealed that he is one of the referees who have received a letter from Tiger PI.

He said he has never taken bribe from anyone and that the said act of corruption was not disclosed to him as a bribe to go in favor of a team. Mr. Bentil says it was given to him as transportation, feeding and accommodation fee.

"It is true that I have received a letter from Anas’ Tiger PI but I don't want to talk much because the money given to me by one Acquah of Accra Hearts of Oak was for transportation, feeding and accommodation", he told ATL FM Sports.

He also said as far as he is concerned, he has not taken any bribe because that’s not his nature. The expose titled Number 12 is set to be premiered in Accra on June 6, 2018 at the Accra International Conference Centre.
