Legal practitioner Maurice Ampaw has told ‘The Zone’ on Starr 103.5FM that he is yet to receive any court suit from Black Stars skipper Asamoah Gyan.
Gyan, through his lawyers, has reportedly sued the maverick lawyer for making defamatory comments about him (Gyan) regarding the disappearance of hiplife artiste Castro.
The Al Ain playmaker, according to the suit, is seeking a perpetual injunction to restrain the lawyer from repeating such comments and also demanding damages to the tune of GH¢5 million from the outspoken legal practitioner.
The writ, filed by lawyer Kissi Agyabeng, said Ampaw in a series of interviews with several media houses across Ghana had insisted consistently that he knew where to find the missing musician and called for the arrest of Gyan, as he believed the Black Stars captain had something to hide in the missing Castro saga.
It said the lawyer had also alleged that there were attempts by close associates of Asamoah Gyan to bribe Castro’s mother with an amount of GH¢l0, 000 so she would stop searching for her missing son.
However, Ampaw has said he cannot be intimidated by court suits.
“I haven’t received any suit from him or his lawyers. I have met his lawyer on four different occasions and he didn’t say anything to me.
“I have said plainly and openly that I will never retract anything I have said about him (Gyan) in this matter.
“If I have to go to court over this matter, I’m willing and prepared to appear before the court to defend myself,” he stated Wednesday.
