Working as a cleaner at a brothel to expose the prostitution of young girls, Anas was treated like one of the punters in a police raid he had helped to organise. "When they came to arrest everybody they assaulted me several times and I was happy about that, because it meant it was never leaked by the police hierarchy that I was undercover," Anas told attendees at a Centre for Investigative Journalism (CIJ) event last night.

Anas Aremeyaw Anas talks at the Centre for Investigative Journalism about his undercover reports — the "unorthodox" techniques he's used and the results they have produced.
