The Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) has accused Parliament’s Acting Director of Public Affairs of peddling falsehoods regarding the Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu.
The OSP in a statement said Parliament’s Acting Director of Public Affairs, Mrs Kate Addo has stated amongst other falsehoods that the Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu, has alleged: “that Parliament is sabotaging and obstructing his work concerning the prosecution of a former Minister of State and Member of Parliament, Hon. Mahama Ayariga.”
The OSP added that Mrs Addo has no personal knowledge of what took place in the meeting which she wrote about in a press release last week.
"The Acting Director of Public Affairs of Parliament who signed the press release allegedly on behalf of the Parliamentary Service did not attend the meeting between the Leadership of Parliament on the one hand and the Deputy Special Prosecutor and the Special Prosecutor on the other hand," the statement said.
"She, therefore, has no personal knowledge of what took place at the meeting she writes about in the press release. Her statements contained in her press release are pure and simple, hearsay statements upon which no reasonable person would place any credibility on".
