- Ghana's Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu, has stated that he is willing to work to other people in order to execute his mandate
- According to him, the fight against corruption calls for a collective effort
- He however added individual who will be investigated and found to be guilty would be prosecuted
The Special Prosecutor, Martin Alamisi Amidu, has declared his intention to team up with top investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, as well others to help him execute his mandate.
In his response to questions by the Appointments Committee of Parliament on Tuesday, February 13, 2018, Amidu stated that there is an urgent need to fight crime in Ghana.
He added that in doing so, one has to work with others who exhibit the same or a better level of zeal, in order to achieve objectives.
In the year 2015, Amidu, popularly referred to as Citizen Vigilante, allegedly attacked the integrity of the ace journalist, claiming he had been compromised.
The astute lawyer was reported to have later stated that former President John Atta-Mills recruited Anas to help collaborate with security personnel to investigate the Judiciary and Parliament.
Information available to YEN.com.gh shows that over 180 workers, including 34 judges were found to be culpable.
He allegedly added that upon the completion of investigations, the results of the Judiciary investigation were released, but that of Parliament were suppressed.
“An anti-corruption activist or journalist must be a man of the highest integrity himself! He cannot be a government agent under any excuse,” Amidu argued.
He further noted that if it is necessary for the Judiciary to be exposed for their dealings, then so be it, as it would be unfair to hide clear evidence of corruption.
