Former Special Prosecutor Martin Amidu has denied allegations against him, accusing the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and Accra-based Joy FM of orchestrating a trial against his person in the court of public opinion.

In an epistle published on May 26, 2024, Amidu made comments that suggested that he was refuting reports of having submitted a petition for the removal of the Special Prosecutor, Kissi Agyebeng.

He referenced recent comments by the NDC chairman, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah as support of the opposition for the SP’s smear campaign against him via Joy FM. “The Martin Amidu I know, until this thing was done, I trusted that he was a very principled person. My faith in his being principled is badly shaken,” Amidu quoted Asiedu Nketiah as saying.

The former Attorney-General said the NDC chairman’s comments were “based on hearsay evidence of a petition I am alleged to have submitted to the President on 30 April 2024 for the removal of the Special Prosecutor.”

Amidu, while responding to a Joy FM report on May 17, 2024, that he had petitioned the President for the removal of his successor demanded to see the alleged petition, questioning its authenticity and the motives behind the accusations.

“I cannot understand why the NDC will collaborate with Kissi Agyebeng’s preferred rented media house and his chief executioner, Sampson Lardy Anyenini, to make allegations against me without publishing the alleged petition on which the allegations are based,” Amidu stated.

Amidu raised concerns about the alleged involvement of the Chief Justice in the matter, questioning the authenticity of documents attributed to her.

He highlighted discrepancies in the documents and called for clarification to restore the integrity of the Judicial Service.

“The alleged document was addressed to only Kissi Agyebeng, the Special Prosecutor, whose media house, Joy FM, broke the supposed news,” Amidu pointed out.

Moreover, Amidu made allegations against his successor, Kissi Agyebeng, accusing him of suppressing investigations and colluding with certain individuals to manipulate public opinion.

“Kissi Agyebeng has refused or failed to make available to Joy FM the facts and evidence on the National Lottery Authority/TekStart Africa Limited investigation in which he was the lawyer for one of the suspects,” Amidu claimed.
