The Editor of the New Crusading Guide, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako Jr., has refuted claims made by Former Attorney General Martin Amidu that the undercover investigation done by Anas Aremeyaw Anas, which exposed judicial corruption was sanctioned by President John Atta-Mills (late).
In an article available on ClassFMonline.com, the ‘Citizen Vigilante’ stated that: “I have said that the undercover investigation that led to the judicial corruption exposé was commissioned by the Government of Ghana and has its genesis in the acrimonious relationship between the Government and the Judiciary on the assumption of power in 2009 by the Government and the constant demand by the Judiciary for proof of judicial corruption from Government and its associates.”
“I was Presidential Advisor on Legal Affairs in the second half of 2009, I was Minister for the Interior in 2010, and the Attorney General in 2011 before I left office in 2012. I, therefore, know what I am talking about,” Mr Amidu said.
However, Anas’ mentor and boss, Kweku Baako responded to Mr Amidu’s claim through a Facebook post saying: “Martin Amidu is wrong; government did not commission Anas’ investigation into judicial corruption. If Martin has contrary evidence, let him simply provide it.”
“None of the state security agencies had anything to do with the two-year investigations. If Martin has evidence to the contrary, he is at liberty to make it public,” Mr Baako challenged Mr Amidu.
Mr. Martin Amidu has released an article in which he chronicled incidents that led to the investigative report released by Anas Aremeyaw Anas and his Tiger Eye PI team, which allegedly captured 34 judges taking bribes to warp justice.
Several other officials of the Judicial Service, Attorney General’s Department and the Police Service were also cited in various alleged acts of bribery and corruption.
In the 3-hour film dubbed: ‘Ghana in the eyes of God – Epic of Injustice,’ the 34 judges and other officials were caught on camera allegedly taking bribes to compromise justice.
