There was drama in the Supreme Court Wednesday, when the Special Prosecutor, Mr. Martin Amidu lost his cool.
Mr. Amidu accused a Deputy Attorney-General (A-G), Mr. Godfred Yeboah Dame of disrespecting him and inferring that he was a liar.
“If you don’t respect, don’t come to me for cooperation. You are younger than my son and a junior at the Bar,” the Special Prosecutor fumed.
The Deputy A-G had taken exception to what he described as the Special Prosecutor’s attempt to paint the A-G as not working to retrieve the €47.7 million judgment debt that the government illegally paid to Waterville Holdings.
According to the Deputy A-G, there was no evidence that the A-G had refused to cooperate with Mr. Amidu to enforce the order of the Supreme Court for the money to be retrieved.
He rather accused the Special Prosecutor of not cooperating with the A-G and leaking information to the media.
That did not go down well with the Special Prosecutor, who accused the Deputy A-G of disrespecting him and calling him a liar.
