execute script without displaying child script messages

Hi i have a script which is calling another script.
But my child script is displaying some values.

sample script.
export LOG_File=/log
mv inner_test.ksh /log/test.ksh
echo 'Success'

here emit.ksh is doing some processing .and echoing some values.
what i want only my main script values should be displayed and what ever child script is executing its value should not be displayed when i run main script.

And i cannot change the emit.ksh script as its a common script used by other application also.

This looks like a syntax error.
Please re-post the line.

If it is just that the $ sign is a typo, this should lose all output to stdout and stderr from the child script.
/Project/Scripts/emit.ksh 2>&1 >/dev/null

$ is typo.
there is absolute path for the script.
i tried running the script the below syntax
. /Project/Scripts/emit.ksh

then also got its displaying all the values echoed in the child script
