Outspoken Member of Parliament for the Ningo Prampram constituency, Hon. Sam Dzata George has descended heavily on the country’s Special Prosecutor, Mr. Martin Amidu, referring to him as a “lazy Special Prosecutor”.
Speaking on the Interpol red alert notice via zoom on today’s Good Morning Show on TV3, the Member of Parliament accused the Special Prosecutor of mishandling the airbus saga which involves Samuel Adam Mahama who is said to be a relative to former president John Dramani Mahama.
Sam George refuted claims that Samuel Adam Mahama is on Interpol red alert saying it is never true and that Samuel Adam Mahama has done nothing wrong, a reason he said is why the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) in the UK has not invited him [Samuel Mahama] for questioning since the case came to spotlight.
The MP further revealed that it was Martin Amidu gave legal advise and signed some documents for the purchase of the aircraft when he was Attorney General in the Mahama administration. He added that if anyone should be held responsible; it should then be Martin Amidu whom he also indirectly described on the show as an old grey hair man without wisdom.
Sam George also indicated that a letter which was written and sent to the Serious Fraud Office of the UK by the Special Prosecutor was not replied nor acknowledged by the SFO as they see the letter to be lacking integrity.
Further, Hon. Sam George pointed at Deputy Minister for Defense, Major (Rtd) Derrick Oduro as one of the persons to be held responsible for the corruption that surrounds the acquisition of the military aircraft
According to the MP, Maj. Oduro was part of a team that certified the aircraft’s acquisition in 2011.
