Smarttys Management and Productions Limited has initiated legal action against media houses that alleged its involvement in the $92 million-rural electrification project executed by China Hunan Construction Engineering Group on behalf of the government of Ghana.
It has denied any involvement in the execution of the project, stressing that it only provided public relations services for the Chinese company.
In a statement issued by lawyer Kissi Agyebeng on behalf of Smarttys on Tuesday, March 15, the production firm will not hesitate in suing “any person and media house that persists in the publication or republication of the clearly defamatory and damaging media report”.
“Indeed, we are filing suit promptly against media houses that carried the unfortunate untruth masquerading as a verified story”.
In Parliament on Monday, March 14, the Minority accused Smarttys of representing the Chinese firm in overpricing the rural electrification project in excess of $9 million.
