…Says “I Have Never Had Any Reason Or Occasion To Visit Germany Throughout My Life Let Alone To Visit Any Medical Facility On Health Grounds.”
The former Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu has denied claims by Assin Central Member of Parliament, Kennedy Agyapong that the former is hiding his medical records from Germany.
Mr. Amidu ins statement responded that “I have never had any reason or occasion to visit Germany throughout my life let alone to visit any medical facility on health grounds. The records of my travels which are available to the lying Kennedy Agyapong’s Government can be checked and the German Embassy contacted whether I have throughout my life made an application for a visa or visited Germany.”
Recall that Mr Agyapong in an interview on his own TV Station, Net 2 TV on Wednesday, indicated that he was privy to some documents revealing questionable details on the former Attorney General’s health status.
He made these comments on the back of revelations by the Special Prosecutor to the effect that Commission for Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CGRAJ) understated the amounts in the three accounts of sacked Public Procurement Authority boss.
The legislature who appeared angry said “Martin Amidu thinks he’s a tin god. He should bring his medical records from Germany, I dare him. Bring your medical records from Germany to determine if you’re normal.”
He further insisted that MP for Bawku Central, Mahama Ayariga intended raising the matter during Mr. Amidu’s vetting for the now-vacant Special Prosecutor position was refrained from doing so.
But Martin Amidu wants Mr Agyapong’s assertions taken with a pinch of salt as the allegation is coming from “a person who has lost all credibility as far as truth is concerned.”
“Kennedy Agyapong is known in Ghana as somebody who spews lies at any person of integrity who tries to fight corruption so I am not surprised that he will stoop so low,” he said.
Martin Amidu, in a conversation with Citi News and a statement he released later in the evening yesterday, clarified that he had never stepped foot in Germany, let alone to visit a medical facility there, and dared Mr Agyapong to produce said medical records.
“He says he has documents on me having gone for medical treatment in Germany, he should produce them. Because my passports are available. I have not been to Germany, Indeed, I don’t know Germany, let alone go for medical treatment.”
He added that the comments attributed to Mahama Ayariga to have corroborated Mr Agyapong’s claims cannot be factual.
“Mahama Ayariga will never, and I repeat never, make such a false allegation against me as his father,” he said on Thursday.
He believes the allegations are part of a grand scheme to thwart his efforts in the anti-corruption fight.
Martin Amidu on November 16, resigned from his position as the Special Prosecutor citing interference from the Presidency as the motive behind the move.
