Martin Amidu’s questions on Anas’ investigations infantile – Prof. Asare

US-based Ghanaian lawyer, Stephen Kwaku Asare says there is no sound legal reasoning in Martin Amidu’s assertions against investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

He said the former Attorney-General’s comments are only serving as an unnecessary distraction from the core issues of the judicial bribery scandal.

Mr. Amidu has been accusing the undercover journalist, Anas, of illegally colluding with government to expose corruption in the judiciary.

He says the government is using the results of Anas’ investigations to mask pervasive political corruption, an allegation both government and Anas have vehemently denied.

Commenting on the feud between Mr. Amidu and Anas, the accounting professor wrote on his facebook wall, “I have studied all the submissions of Amidu on Anas’ undercover investigation of the judiciary. There is no iota of wisdom or sound legal reasoning in Amidu’s assertions.”

He said the former A-G appeared to be “…allowing his apparent political quarrels with the President to cloud his judgment.”

“Amidu has nothing useful to offer in this judicial saga and seems to be distracting the media from focusing on issues that matter. His questions are infantile and seem to confuse undercover journalism with security services,” he added.

Prof. Asare also touched on Martin Amidu’s suggestion that President John Mahama’s conduct on corruption may make impossible any person of northern extraction to be elected president again in the next 30 years.

“If Amidu’s hooey that the President’s conduct will preclude a northerner from being elected as President in the next 3 decades, then equally the Vice-President’s conduct should preclude a southerner from being elected as Vice-President during the same time period,” he stated.

He also urged the media to “stop glorifying Amidu’s palpable self-aggrandizement and focus on the delay in the prosecution of the corrupt judges.”
