Breaking News: Amidu Resigns As Special Prosecutor Over Agyapa Deal Trauma

Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu has resigned as Special Prosecutor with immediate effect.

In his three page letter addressed to President Akufo-Addo, he indicated that his decision is to “enable Your Excellency to take steps to appoint a replacement to that position as required by law.”

According to him, President Akufo-Addo has not been able to ensure his independence and freedom of action.

“The one condition upon which I accepted to be nominated as the Special Prosecutor when you invited me to your Office on 10th January 2018 was your firm promise to me that you will respect and ensure same by your Government for my independence and freedom of action as the Special Prosecutor,” he emphasised.

He stated that the trauma he faced regarding his risk assessment report of the controversial Agyapa deal is not enough reasons for him to bow out as well as interference in other investigations by some State officials.

It comes after the Special Prosecutor blamed his investigators for his inability to investigate corruption claims against the dismissed Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Public Procurement Authority (PPA) Adjenim Boateng Adjei.

Mr Amidu has revealed that his investigators who worked on the ‘Contracts For Sale’ case involving the now-sacked CEO of the Public Procurement Authority (PPA), were “compromised”.
