Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu has urged Ghanaians to quit making unsubstantiated speculations and spurring suggestions from the deferred judgement from the Southwark Crown Court in the UK on the issue of the Airbus deal, till investigations are determined.
This he says will allow his Office to ‘treat the suspected crimes as suspected crimes simpliciter and nothing more, pending the conclusion of the investigation”.
According to a press release dated Monday, February 10, 2020, and signed by Mr. Amidu, investigations have been launched into the allegations of bribery of Ghanaian officials in the military aircraft deal since it was referred to his office by the Office of the President on February 2, 2020.
The statement further indicated that “the Special Prosecutor has determined that the said referral and the deferred prosecution agreements and judgements accompanying them raise reasonable suspicion of the commission of corruption and corruption-related offences of bribery of public officers and the use of public office by public officers for private profit”.
