Attorney General and  Justice Minister-designate Godfred Dame has noted that the former Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu, was not mandated under law to present a copy of his assessment report on the Agyapa Royalties agreement to the president.

He said this during his vetting by the Appointments Committee of Parliament on Friday, February 12, 2021.

During proceedings, Ranking Member Haruna Iddrisu asked him: “You are saying that the Special Prosecutor was not required to present the report to who?”

“To the President,” Dame answered, adding that “he was not required to present the report to the president. I don’t see anywhere in ACT 959 that mandates the Special Prosecutor to present a copy of the report to the president”.

“He presented a copy of the report to the president and in doing so he himself spelt out the rationale for doing so. His letter written to the president stated that whatever he did was to guide future actions,” the former Deputy Attorney General said.
