In the see of the Nationwide Democratic Congress (NDC) M,
Martin Amidu who until eventually his appointment gave the strongest impression that
he had all the features to struggle
corruption, has been disappointing and only appears to be specialized in
composing letters and content articles.
Speaking on Citi TV’s Breakfast Every day software monitored by MyNewsGh.com, Alhassan Suhuyini claimed “My position on Mr Martin Amidu is effectively regarded. It appears to be as if as an alternative of a specific prosecutor we acquired a unique letter author. Which is what it appears to be we have. The gentleman we have is a unique letter writer”.
Given that his appointment, Mr Martin Amidu has prepared and
published series of letters and articles or blog posts on matters that hassle on the
operations of his office and the discharge of his obligations.
The seeming delay on the aspect of the revered anti-corruption
fighter to reach sizeable results by prosecuting persons thought to be
included in corruption and corruption associated things to do has produced
widespread disappointment among the Ghanaians with numerous openly criticizing him for
dashing their anticipations.
In one particular of his written releases, the Exclusive Prosecutor said
“Heads of institutions wantonly disregard statutory requests built by the Business
of the Specific Prosecutor for details and output of files to assist
in the investigation of corruption and corruption-linked offences. Public
officers have been charged, arraigned prior to the Large Court docket and their pleas
taken only for them to return to their workplaces and function ordinarily as though
they have hardly ever been suspected of committing any corruption offences. Regardless of
all the powers conferred on the Place of work of the Exclusive Prosecutor by the regulation,
when heads of establishments continuously refuse or fail to support the struggle
towards the canker of corruption by not vigorously applying polices
intended to aid the combat towards corruption and other crimes, they eventually
undermine the do the job and influence of the Office environment of the Special Prosecutor”.
Even so, Alhassan Suhuyini thinks that Mr Amidu was not
oblivious of the troubles that he would experience in the battle in opposition to corruption
and hence identified as baseless the factors provided by the special prosecutor for
failing to prosecute.
“Who doesn’t know that devices are hard to go
all over in this region? But it is due to the fact possibly we envisioned greater that is
why the regulation was made special and supported by all and handed in parliament and
his (Amidu’s) appointment authorized by the identical parliament. So why do you each
now and then generate to us about problems,” he questioned.
He further more questioned why Mr Martin Amidu retains complaining
in publications in excess of circumstances he wrote profusely on prior to his appointment
which include a scenario that has to do with the alleged diversion of $15 million
reportedly paid to the Government of Ghana as part of corporate social
responsibility for the progress of the West Cape 3 Factors Area in the
As a affliction for then-President John Atta Mills giving
government consent to allow the E.O. Group to assign $300 million worthy of of
shares to Tullow, the E.O. Group agreed to shell out the dollars.
Mr Amidu has faulted the Director Standard of Police CID for failing to generate a docket immediately after an investigation carried out earlier on the subject.
“This issue that he is complaining about was a single that
he wrote profusely on, he wrote copiously on with articles on articles or blog posts
promotion his knowledge of how the funds were being diverted below President
Mahama. He wrote demonstrating his know-how as an insider. He has
investigative powers and so if the CID simply cannot get him a docket, primarily based on his
former understanding if not on concoction, lies, dishonesty and deception, he
ought to progress on his possess investigations,” he claimed.
