Former Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu, has accused President Nana Akufo-Addo of being behind the state’s failure to bring criminal charges against Legislators who were cited in an audit report to have received doubled salaries.

“The credible information I received on the case is and was that the then-Attorney General and the Director of Public Prosecutions had both perused the case docket and had come to the conclusion that charges be filed against some of the suspects for prosecution.
“The Attorney General was instructed not to do so by the President who unconstitutionally usurped the investigatory and prosecutorial constitutional authority of the Attorney General on the grounds of political expediency of having the suspects agreeable to play ball in Parliament for government,” he states in his latest epistle.
