The Special Prosecutor, Martin A.B.K. Amidu has given a two-page response to the former President John Dramani Mahama for calling the bluff of his office in naming him as the Government Official 1 in the Airbus Scandal.
Mr. Amidu in a counter statement to the former President’s rant that it was ‘stupid’ of him to have inserted corruption allegations against him with regards to the Airbus Scandal, stated that he [Martin Amidu] has the right to ‘exercise discretion’ on cases brought before it.
He thus dared Mr. Mahama to avail himself for interrogation, if he is clean.
“… if you really assert that there is no piece of evidence showing that you are elected Government Official 1 why do you not simply voluntarily come to be cautioned, be interrogated and confronted with the evidence against you as elected Government Official 1.”
He indicated that the evidence gathered so far, points to Mr. Mahama as being the embattled Government Official 1 in the Airbus Scandal.
“Your Excellency, the Wise and the brave former President John Dramani Mahama, man-up, wise -up, and be brave enough to come with two lawyers of your choice to be cautioned and interrogated by this Office to demonstrate your valour and wisdom as not being elected Government Official 1 and also not being the first guarantor to Samuel Adam Mahama’s passport application.”
Mr. Amidu remarked that John Mahama “cannot pick and from the Agyapa Royalties Limited report.”
