The Supreme Court will on April 29, give judgement on the case challenging the eligibility and appointment of Martin Amidu as the Special Prosecutor.
The plaintiff, Dr Dominic Ayine, who is a former Deputy Attorney General went to Court in relation to his age at the time of his appointment.
The court fixed the date for the judgement after the plaintiff and the Attorney General informed the court that they had filed their legal arguments.
Dr Ayine is arguing that by a true and proper interpretation of Articles 190(1)(d), 199(1), 199(4), and 295 of the 1992 Constitution, the retirement age of all holders of public offices created pursuant to Article 190 (1)(d) is sixty (60) years, anyhow not beyond sixty-five (65) years.
He further argues that by reason of Mr Amidu’s age (66 years) [as of the time of his appointment in 2018], he is not qualified or eligible to be nominated as the Special Prosecutor under section 13(3) of the Office of the Special Prosecutor Act, 2018 (Act 959).
