The Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu, has described as needless, the statement attributed to his office by the Police CID, concerning a red alert notice for the arrest of a brother of Former President John Mahama over the airbus bribery scandal.

According to Mr. Amidu, the action of the Police is extraordinary and unusual as such arrest notices from Interpol state the law enforcement agency at whose request it was issued.

The Police administration had noted that Interpol’s Red Alert for the arrest and possible extradition of Samuel Adam Foster, also known as Adam Mahama, and three others, was upon the request of the Office of the Special Prosecutor.

The statement from the Police was meant to clarify earlier reports that suggested that Interpol had issued an arrest warrant for the said individuals.

The Special Prosecutor said his office uncovered substantive evidence into the controversial Airbus scandal which was enough for Interpol to grant the request for a Red Notice for the extradition of Mr Adam Mahama otherwise known as Samuel Adam Foster and three others.

The statement said the investigation into the Airbus SE bribery case in Ghana has been so thorough that it has even unearthed the suspected commission of other related crimes of impersonation as graduates of the University of Ghana, a civil servant, and forgeries in the application for the acquisition of a Ghanaian passport connect to this bribery case.

With specific regards to allegations of political witch-hunting from the camps of the opposition NDC, Mr Amidu established his unwillingness to wade into a politically branded discourse which he believes are being instigated by young ‘unethical lawyers.’

Mr Amidu in the statement said he as a Special Prosecutor is well known in this country and amongst the community of ethical lawyers and the senior judiciary as a person who has practised law ethically for up to forty years.

It adds that some of the unethical lawyers who are assaulting his person and character on the airwaves are lawyers who are in their twenties and early thirties.

He added that they have not yet cut their teeth at the Ghana Bar.

The Special Prosecutor said he refuses to be drawn into the affray of turning law into politics as is the forte of those unethical and inexperienced lawyers with no or very limited distinguished courtroom practice vindicating their standing as lawyers in the Ghana Law Reports.
