Court gives Amidu green light to prosecute Ayariga

An Accra High court has ruled, Special Prosecutor Martin Amidu can prosecute Bawku Central MP Mahama Ayariga, dismissing applications filed by the NDC MP.

The embattled opposition MP had challenged the Special Prosecutor’s capacity to hold public office, arguing the 66-year old Martin Amidu was beyond the mandatory retirement age of 65.

His lawyers also maintained the crimes their client has been charged with are not listed among those which the Special Prosecutor is allowed by law to prosecute.

The NDC MP is standing trial for charges including tax evasion and abuse of office for personal gain.
