Supreme court asks AG to justify Amidu's appointment

The Supreme Court has asked the Attorney General’s office to within three weeks, file legal arguments justifying the appointment of Martin Amidu as Special Prosecutor.

The Supreme Court also gave the lawyers for the applicant, Dr. Dominic Ayine, 3 weeks to legally justify their case.

The case was filed at the Supreme Court by Former Deputy Attorney, General Dominic Ayine who is challenging the eligibility of Martin Amidu to hold such a position.

Dr. Ayine wants the appointment annulled since, Amidu has exceeded the mandatory retirement age.

The filing of legal arguments is expected to pave the way for a date to be set for judgment on the case.

The court earlier this year (2019) struck out Amidu as a defendant in the case saying he ought to be defended by the Attorney General’s department.
