Speaker of Parliament tried to persuade me not to prosecute parliamentarians – SP

Special Prosecutor (SP), Martin Alamisi Burnes Kaiser Amidu, has accused the Speaker of Parliament, Prof. Aaron Mike Ocquaye, of interfering in his work of prosecuting corrupt parliamentarians who have abused their office.

He explained that when he sent a member of parliament to court, the Speaker invited him (Martin Amidu) to his office, and tried to persuade him as to how he should behave but “I told him ‘No I won’t.'”

“He wrote to the judge with a certificate directing the judge how he should behave, the judge turned it down…there is nothing like bipartisan interference in the work of the office of Special Prosecutor when the legislature which made the law and gave the independence tries to interfere as to how it is executed,” Mr Amidu said to host of ‘Time With David’, David Ampofo.

The Special Prosecutor debunked the assertion that he is a lonely man and it is only the general public that he owes his duty to and not the politicians.

He noted, “If you bipartisanly obstruct the fight against corruption, you should remember Tunisia, Sudan and your people who are suffering and who will want alternatives to have freedom.”
