Amidu Again: Gov’t Could Have Investigated Judiciary Without ‘Fraudulent’ Anas


Government according to former Attorney General, Martin Amidu could have investigated the purported rot in the judiciary without engaging the services of investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

Martin Amidu has over the past few days been attacking Anas and his firm, Tigereye PI describing them as ‘dummy’ and ‘fraudulent.’

Anas’ captured 34 judges and other court officials on video allegedly taking bribes to influence judgement.

But the anti-corruption campaigner, Mr. Amidu insists that ‘the Government of Ghana could have handled investigations into judicial corruption without commissioning or standing by for a dummy and fraudulent Tiger Eye PI to do any undercover investigations for it.’

Martin Amidu argued that when the US suspected a former Police officer, one Abel Lima of engaging in dubious activities including bribery, they did not contract any investigative firm to do it for them.

‘Over a 14-month period beginning in November 2007 investigators used court-authorized wiretaps to listen to the judge’s phone calls and learned what he was doing.

In 2010 when the judge, Lima, was faced with overwhelming evidence against him, began to cooperate in a wider public corruption investigation and the agents learned that the Cameron County district attorney at the time Armando Villalobos was also corrupt .

Lima pleaded guilty to racketeering in 2011 by which time he had helped authorities to uncover wider-ranging corruption in the Cameron County judicial system.’

Martin Amidu argued that ‘as a former Deputy Attorney-General, Minister of the Interior with additional responsibility for Security and Intelligence, and Attorney-General I can swear on my honour that the Ghana Police Service, Bureau of National Investigations, the National Security Coordinator’s office, the Military Intelligence, and other domestic and external investigative and intelligence agencies established under the 1992 Constitution when well-funded could have done more creditably what the dummy and fraudulent Tiger Eye PI produced for payment in dollars.’

Below is the full statement:
ANAS AREMEYAW ANAS AND DUMMY TIGER EYE PI OR DUMMY TIGER EYE PI LIMITED SHOULD TELL THE WHOLE TRUTH ABOUT ITS LEGAL STATUS UNDER THE LAW: BY MARTIN A. B. K. AMIDU

An anti-corruption activist must himself be a man of unblemished integrity and law abiding that is why Tiger Eye PI, known on its webpage-tigereyepi.org- as Tiger Eye PI: Private Investigation Agency in Ghana must confirm its statement of yesterday that there is a company registered under the laws of Ghana as Tiger Eye PI or Tiger Eye PI Limited.

I have contended that Tiger Eye PI, described as a private investigation agency in Ghana is a dummy, criminal, and fraudulent vehicle scamming the domestic and international public. Tiger Eye PI’s response is that I am right in only so far as it failed to use the suffix limited after its name to read Tiger Eye PI Limited as demanded by the Companies Act, 1963 (Act 179).

This contention by Tiger Eye PI is a deliberate and dishonest falsehood unbecoming of an anti-corruption activist of any integrity because there is no company registered under the laws of Ghana known as Tiger Eye PI Limited.

Tiger Eye PI, described on the website -tigereyepi.org- list the following objects or services on the website: (1) Undercover Agency, (2) Excuse Duty Fraud, (3) Comprehensive Undercover Investigation, (4) Deep Company Due Diligence, (5) Undercover Surveillance, (6) Secret Hidden Camera Planting, (7) Deep Employee Background Check, (8) Observational Due Diligence, (9) Undercover Security Personnel, (10) Airport Security Pick Ups and (11) Customized Operations.

There is no registered company in the register of companies with such objects whether described as Tiger Eye PI or Tiger Eye PI Limited and Ghanaians demand proof as alleged by Tiger Eye PI and its lawyer Mr. Kissi Agyabeng of the registration number and date of incorporation of the said company he claims is Tiger Eye PI Limited. Tiger Eye PI or Tiger Eye PI Limited should produce its licences and permits to employ agents in Ghana in compliance with LI 1517 since its establishment and undercover work.

It is the non-compliance with the laws of Ghana in which it operates that makes it a dummy, criminal and fraudulent scam on the world like any 419.

Tiger Eye PI described as a private investigation agency in Ghana must do this having regard to the fact that with the only registered company is Tiger Eye PI Media Limited with registration Number CA-57,546 incorporated on 7th April 2009 with Anas Aremeyaw Anas as the sole shareholder.

The objects of Tiger Eye PI Media Limited are listed on its regulations as follows: (A) To Engage In Mass Media Business, (B) To Carry Out Investigative Television Documentaries, (C) To Engage In Print and Radio Journalism, and (D) To Investigate News Behind The News Editorials.

Lawyers (if properly trained) know that the dummy Tiger Eye PI Limited, as Mr. Kissi Agyabeng now call it, cannot be the same as the lawfully registered Tiger Eye PI Media Limited in any circumstances under the laws of Ghana.

Accountable and transparent answers with utmost integrity to my above claims will establish once and for all that Anas Aremeyaw Anas and his Tiger Eye PI on his website are a credible business under the laws of Ghana and not an international criminal and fraudulent scam.

Insulting me does not wish away the criminal fraud Anas Aremeyaw Anas and his dummy Tiger Eye PI’s perpetrated in collaboration with his employers, this NDC Government.

The Government of Ghana could have handled investigations into judicial corruption without commissioning or standing by for a dummy and fraudulent Tiger Eye PI to do any undercover investigations for it.

The United States of America had occasion to suspect one Abel Lima, 59, a life long resident of Brownsville, Texas, who had served as a police officer and practiced law before becoming a state judge in Cameron County from 2001 to 2009 of having turned his courtroom into a criminal enterprise to line his own pocket. He sold his courtroom-$300 here, $500 there- in return for a favourable ruling.

He received more than $250,000 in bribes and kickbacks while he was on the bench.

Over a 14-month period beginning in November 2007 investigators used court-authorized wiretaps to listen to the judge’s phone calls and learned what he was doing. In 2010 when the judge, Lima, was faced with overwhelming evidence against him, began to cooperate in a wider public corruption investigation and the agents learned that the Cameron County district attorney at the time Armando Villalobos was also corrupt .

Lima pleaded guilty to racketeering in 2011 by which time he had helped authorities to uncover wider-ranging corruption in the Cameron County judicial system.

As at the time paper the THE FBI wrote, 10 other defendants had been convicted by a jury or pleaded guilty as part of the FBI’s six-year investigation, including a former ….. During the cause of the investigations the FBI interviewed over 800 people including local attorneys in Cameron County.

The news story concludes: ‘We hope this case shows every one that government will not tolerate officials who violate the public trust. Fighting public corruption is a priority for the FBI…and it is something we take very seriously.’

As a former Deputy Attorney-General, Minister of the Interior with additional responsibility for Security and Intelligence, and Attorney-General I can swear on my honour that the Ghana Police Service, Bureau of National Investigations, the National Security Coordinator’s office, the Military Intelligence, and other domestic and external investigative and intelligence agencies established under the 1992 Constitution when well-funded could have done more creditably what the dummy and fraudulent Tiger Eye PI produced for payment in dollars.

This Gargantuan politically corrupt Government declared in my Supreme Court cases, choose to bypass the constitutional security agencies to use the dummy and fraudulent Tiger Eye PI only for its own selfish financial, corrupt and unconstitutional reasons.

The difference between Anas Aremeyaw Anas and me is that he is a for profit covert agent who operates to divert attention from political corruption in the Government whilst I expose Government political corruption.

He is a paid commissioned agent of government with a biometric Government service Passport whilst I am a private not for profit anti-crusader.

Anas Aremeyaw Anas and Tiger Eye PI redeem your integrity by answering my questions of your legality.

Dated 12th November 2015.
