Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What does the name JeSuisAnas refer to?
Je Suis Anas means “I am Anas” in French. This website is a platform where Ghanaians can join the fight against corruption in our society.
Q: Who is behind JeSuisAnas?
The movement JeSuisAnas is started by the Tiger Eye Foundation and its founder Anas Aremeyaw Anas. We collaborate with governments, citizens, corporations and civil society organizations that share a common belief that the collective safety of humanity depends on the actions we take in our own ways.
The platform is powered by Tiger Eye’s partner Klarity. Klarity provides the technological infrastructure and the digital tools needed to safely upload the videos to the platform, while Tiger Eye will serve as editors and mobilize and encourage activists to share more content on the platform.
Q: I only see two cases on the page. Will there be other cases covered as well?
Yes, the platform will cover corruption in all sectors of society that matter to citizens. As an audience-led platform, some of the cases covered will come from users like you.
Q: I have experienced corruption first hand. What do I do?
If you have been asked or forced to pay a bribe, we urge you to report the person who extorted money from you. You should also use this form to report it to Anas and the Tiger Eye team.
If you often experience petty corruption, we suggest you download and learn how to use the Tiger Eye App available on Google Play Store to record it and send the evidence to Anas.
Q: Can I use the Tiger Eye app without data?
Yes you can! You do not need to be online to record with the app, but the browser will not be visible during recording if you are not connected to the internet. In this case, you can exit the Tiger Eye app and use other apps in order to stay undercover while it’s filming.
Q: Why does the app need location permissions?
Allowing the app to access your location is your choice and not a must. We recommend you turn it on for two reasons. If it’s on, the geolocation will be added to the video metadata automatically which helps you prove where the video was recorded. Secondly, you need to allow it if you would like to use the “Notify a Friend” feature.
Q: What if I record a video, send it to you and those in the video trace it back to me?
Always think of your safety first. Do not take the risk of filming if you think you can be traced and threatened by the official caught on the video.
There are no laws criminalizing the act of secretly recording a public official on duty. The recording may also be used as evidence in proceedings against that officer.
Q: Did you consider that the Tiger Eye app can be misused? Eg. innocent ladies might be filmed during sex and blackmailed?
We developed the app to enable citizens to collect video evidence of the everyday corruption many are facing by officials. The aim is to intensify the approach and make corruption everyone’s fight. In our part of the world, sometimes simply gathering information is not enough, you need to back it up with hardcore evidence. There is always a risk that someone might misuse the app for other purposes.
If you hear about anyone using the camera for anything illegal please report it to the Police immediately.
Secretly recording citizens could be in violation of that person’s right to privacy guaranteed by the constitution and could be sued. You are not allowed to film a public official as they are going about their duties as private citizens. The Tiger Eye app should only be used to record the acts of corrupt officials in duty.
Q: Is the Tiger Eye app available on Apple store?
For now, the app is only available on Google Play Store. We put our focus on developing a great Android app to start with and we’ll endeavour to develop it for other platforms.
Q: I want to help out, how do I get involved?
There are many ways to get involved.
You can take and share videos of any form of corruption you have witnessed. You can provide tips about corruption cases for others to investigate. You can sign petitions that will compel authorities to take action on corruption cases. You can also spread the anti-corruption message with your close circle of friends and family.
Whatever your area of interest, there are many ways you can get involved at www.jesuisanas.org.
Q: What do you do to close more of these cases?
We will continue to push for action until action is taken by the responsible.
