    Akufo-Addo orders Martin Amidu to CHASE Mills-Mahama officials involved in Airbus Scandal

    The President, Nana Akufo-Addo has ordered the Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu to commence investigations into the alleged Airbus Scandal involving state officials in the President John Mills and John Mahama administrations.

    The President gave the order in a release signed by Director of Communications at the presidency, Eugene Arhin and copied to GhanaNewsPage.Com.

    “President Akufo-Addo has taken notice of the judgement and its implications, and has referred it to the Office of the Special Prosecutor to collaborate with its UK counterparts to conduct a prompt inquiry to determine the complicity or otherwise of any government official, past or present, involved in the said scandal, and to take the necessary legal action as required by law,” the statement from the presidency concluded.

    Airbus, a company noted for the manufacturing of Aircrafs, says it paid bribe in Ghana and some other African countries between 2011 and 2015.

    This was revealed in a corruption investigation of business dealsAirbus has been involved in for the past 10 years.

    The Guardian, a UK-based News paper, on the outcome of the UK’s Serious Fraud Office (SFO) investigation stated that “Allison Clare, for the SFO, told the court the company had paid bribes in Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Taiwan and Ghana between 2011 and 2015.”

    And this, the Presidency believes should not be swept under the carpet hence the insistence that the Special Prosecutor investigates it.
