Former Special Prosecutor Martin Amidu has accused President Akufo-Addo of instructing the former Attorney General, Gloria Akufo, not to file charges against Parliamentarians found to have received double salaries.
Mr. Amidu in a six-page document alleged that Madam Akuffo and Director of Public Prosecution, Yvonne Attakora Obuobisa, agreed to have some of the suspects charged.
However, Mr. Amidu is claiming that the President ordered for the issue to be dropped.
“The credible information I received on the case is and was that the then-Attorney General and the Director of Public Prosecutions had both perused the case docket and had come to the conclusion that charges be filed against some of the suspects for prosecution.
“The Attorney General was instructed not to do so by the President who unconstitutionally usurped the investigatory and prosecutorial constitutional authority of the Attorney General on the grounds of political expediency of having the suspects agreeable to play ball in Parliament for government.”
