The Minority in Parliament is calling the bluff of the Special Prosecutor, Martine Amidu over the arrest of Samuel Mahama, brother of Ex-president John Dramani Mahama.
Martin Amidu in a statement asked Samuel Adam Mahama who is a UK citizen be evacuated voluntarily back to Ghana for necessary investigations.
He also indicated he will be firm in ensuring the truth in the scandal is uncovered.
But Minority spokesperson on Communications A.B.A Fuseini says the effort will amount to nothing.
“It is much ado about nothing, even the British state where this issue emanated has not even followed up on this issue, so where is the locus of this government in this whole case, politically they are struggling to find something to say about John Mahama but it is not working out, they are trying hard to find something against him.”
Martin Amidu on July 23, 2020 in a statement said his Office built a good case to warrant the Interpol Red Notice for the arrest of four persons in the Airbus scandal.
He said Interpol approved Ghana’s request and subsequently issue a Red Notice for each of the four fugitives wanted for prosecution for their roles.
Martin Amidu said the investigations will also give the former President John Mahama an opportunity to clear his name.
In a letter to the Ministry seeking urgent evacuation of Samuel Adam Foster, also known as Samuel Adam Mahama, to Ghana “in order to assuage not only his own image but also that of his brother the former President, who accuses this Office of tainting his image by the investigation of the suspected allegations”.
“This is because until Samuel Mahama answers in Court for the suspected allegations discovered by the investigation of this Office against him as a Ghanaian citizen, the unwarranted politicization of this simple corruption crime by his family and supporters will continue,” the release noted.
Therefore, the request wants Mr Adam Mahama joined to the evacuation flight for stranded Ghanaians scheduled for Monday, July 27.
