If I am corrupt, let them expose me – Deputy Minority Leader

The Deputy Minority Leader of Parliament has challenged Anas Aremeyaw Anas to expose him if there is evidence of him being corrupt.

Speaking on Citi FM’s Morning Show, Dominic Nitiwul said, “if I am a corrupt person, let them expose me so that the legislative body will be respected.”

He was denying allegations by former Attorney-General Martin Amidu that journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas conducted undercover investigations detailing massive corruption in Parliament – but the findings have been shelved by government.

According to Martin Amidu, government is waving the results of a similar investigation into the judiciary as a decoy to divert attention from political corruption.

On September 22 and 23, investigative Journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas and his Tiger Eye PI team screened an explosive judicial scandal video at the Accra International Conference Centre.

Judges and judicial workers were captured allegedly receiving bribes or engaged in corrupt activities to influence justice in the video.

About 34 judges have been suspended after the exposé.

Former Attorney General, Martin Amidu in one of his recent write-ups alleged that Parliamentarians were shown an investigative video of corrupt MPs by Anas at a closed session.

According to Mr Amidu, influence from the Executive and other key persons in government prevented a broadcast of the video that was paid for by government.

Anas and his team, as well as government have denied Martin Amidu’s allegations that government paid the investigations into the judiciary.

But Martin Amidu claims the purported video about the corrupt in Parliament is equally scandalous has promised to provide evidence of his allegations.

MP for Asuogyaman Osei Ameyaw has called on the leadership of Parliament to respond to Amidu’s claims.

He said if it is true that the Executive covered up the corruption exposé at the Legislature, then the Constitution has been breached.

But Mr Nitiwul has refuted the allegations by the Former Attorney General that legislators have watched a video of corrupt MPs.

According to him, Martin Amidu is being misled.
“Whoever informed him might have misinformed him; it was the judicial corruption video that we watched…Some leaders in parliament had the opportunity to watch the judicial corruption video two weeks before the public viewing,” he said.

The MP for Bimbilla Constituency in Northern Region added that “If you know Anas very well, you will know that no one can influence him, not even government”.

Anas himself will neither confirm nor deny the existence of an investigative video on Parliament.
