Martin Amidu has indicated that John Mahama is the first Government official in his report on the Airbus scandal.
The special prosecutor, in his report said has not been able to interrogate Mr. Mahama because he is a presidential candidate of the NDC in the upcoming general elections.
“This Office also has warrants of arrest issued by the Courts of Ghana, and an Interpol Red Alert Notice outstanding for execution in the case of the Republic v Samuel Adam Mahama and Others (known as the Airbus SE — Ghana Bribery Scandal involving the then Government of Ghana), not to talk of documentary evidence of suspected forgeries and deceit of a public officer by the three full-blood brothers in the corruption transaction to obtain a Ghanaian passport for Samuel Adam Mahama,” Mr Amidu said.
The special prosecutor, in his report said he has not been able to interrogate Mr. Mahama because he is a presidential candidate of the NDC in the upcoming general election
He added: This Office has established the identity of elected Government official 1 to be former President John Dramani Mahama whose brother of the full blood is Samuel Adam Foster also known as Samuel Adam Mahama. The only reason the former President has not been invited for interrogation (in spite of all threats from some of his followers and lawyers) is the fact that he got himself an insurance as the Presidential candidate of the other largest political party in Ghana and prudence dictated that the interrogation be held in abeyance during this election season.”
Mr Mahama said reacting : “I’m disappointed in Martin Amidu for putting that paragraph in his report to equalize things, No financial benefit accrued to me, not a single dollar. Legally, he has not a single basis to continue with that investigation. He should show us what investigation he has done, he should tell us who he has spoken to”.
