A former Attorney General under the erstwhile Mahama administration, Marietta Brew Appiah-Oppong has described as ‘false and misleading’ reports that International plane manufacturer, Airbus SE paid bribes to high profile officials in the John Mills and John Mahama administrations before securing contacts in Ghana.
