Former Attorney General and Minister for Justice and former Special Prosecutor, Martin Alamisi Burnes Kaiser Amidu has accused former president John Dramani Mahama for unleashing his NDC attack dogs such as Alhassan Suhuyini , Sammy Gyamfi, and Johnson Aseidu Nketiah on him.

He said these NDC executives have been attacking him since 17 May 2024 based on hearsay evidence of a petition he (Martin Amidu) allegedly submitted to the President on 30 April 2024 for the removal of the Special Prosecutor (Kissi Agyebeng).

“What has really baffled me, and which is what I have been trying to understand is the reason for which John Dramani Mahama who is the leader and flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has unleashed his NDC attack dogs such as Alhassan Suhuyini , Sammy Gyamfi, and to crown it all the Chairman of the NDC, Johnson Aseidu Nketiah, on me since 17 May 2024 based on hearsay evidence of a petition I am alleged to have
submitted to the President on 30 April 2024 for the removal of the Special Prosecutor. I cannot understand why the NDC will collaborate with Kissi Agyebeng’s preferred rented media house and his chief executioner, Sampson Lardy Anyenini, to make allegations against me without publishing the alleged petition on which the allegations are based to provide me the opportunity to confirm or deny my signature and rebut or admit the accusations.” He wrote.

 

Below is Martin Amidu’s statement

THE NDC NEEDS TO THINK LONG BEFORE JOINING KISSI AGYEBENG AND JOY FM TO TRY ME IN THE COURT OF PUBLIC OPINION: BY MARTIN A. B. K. AMIDU

On 17 May 2024 at 6:00 am, Kissi Agyebeng’s rented media house, Joy FM, as usual published a report intended to try me in the court of public opinion without providing any accompanying documentary evidence showing my signature to any document upon which it based my public trial. I have learnt to live with the McCarthyism of Kissi Agyebeng and his executioners at Joy FM.

What has really baffled me, and which is what I have been trying to understand is the reason for which John Dramani Mahama who is the leader and flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has unleashed his NDC attack dogs such as Alhassan Suhuyini , Sammy Gyamfi, and to crown it all the Chairman of the NDC, Johnson Aseidu Nketiah, on me since 17 May 2024 based on hearsay evidence of a petition I am alleged to have
submitted to the President on 30 April 2024 for the removal of the Special Prosecutor. I cannot understand why the NDC will collaborate with Kissi Agyebeng’s preferred rented media house and his chief executioner, Sampson Lardy Anyenini, to make allegations against me without publishing the alleged petition on which the allegations are based to provide me the opportunity to confirm or deny my signature and rebut or admit the accusations.

My trial, and the trauma it has caused me is allegedly based on a document written by the Chief Justice. I have every reason to question the authenticity of the document attributed to the Chief Justice because I established with mathematical precision with the assistance of information and communication technologies (ICT) that a Joint Statement published at the instance of Kissi Agyebeng as a Joint Statement by the OSP and the Judicial Service of

Ghana (JSG) was a forgery by the OSP when it displayed the OSP logo along side the Coat- of Arms of Ghana as representing the JSG. The Right to Information Commission (RTIC) has my evidence, has not concluded its mediation, and knows why I am not making my proof public.

In addition and firstly, I am not familiar with the signature of the Chief Justice. Secondly, the document attributed to the Chief Justice has no reference number as required by public records administration to avoid forgery of official documents. Thirdly, as a former student of the Tamale Commercial Institute, the first commercial institute in Northern Ghana, I cannot fathom a Chief Justice writing and signing a document in which she will refer to herself as
“the Honourable Chief Justice”. Fourthly, I do not think that the Chief Justice would have written and signed the document attributed to her and have it published in the media or leaked to the media. Fifth, the alleged document was addressed to only Kissi Agyebeng, the Special Prosecutor, whose media house, Joy FM, broke the supposed news at 6:00 am on 17 May 2024 when the Chief Justice’s document was dated the previous day, 16 May 2024. Sixth, I cannot fathom that the Chief Justice if she is the author of the document attributed to her gave the addressee a fiat to source the document to Joy FM. Seventh, Joy FM and the NDC have refused or failed to publish the letter from the Presidency to the Chief Justice or the alleged petition for purposes of authentication to enable a reasoned response from me as the Joy FM’s accused in its trial in the court of public opinion. Finally, it is impossible for me to have written a petition under my signature and referred to Kissi Agyebeng as “Honourable Kissi Agyebeng” as alleged in the document attributed to the Chief Justice.
