Martin Amidu has slammed Gbevlo Lartey who through a Facebook post punched Mr. Amidu over his assertions on Mr. Woyome's verdict.
Former Attorney General Martin Amidu, has in his latest 'letter from afar’ slammed former National Security Adviser, Lieutenant Col. Larry Gbevlo Lartey who through a Facebook post punched Mr. Amidu over his assertions on Mr Agbesi Woyome's verdict that set him free.
Reacting to Gbevlo Lartey’s supposed knowledge of how he Mr. Amidu was sacked from office, the former AG said “any assertions that Larry Gbevlo-Lartey knew everything that happened in the Mills/Mahama Government just because he was National Security Co-ordinator are patently obvious and irredeemable presumptuous lies.”
According to Mr. Amidu, “Gbevlo-Lartey after his sudden and unexpected removal from office may be seeking to curry favour with the Government by pretending to know everything that happened before I left office.
“I would want Gbevlo-Lartey and his type in the NDC to know for the avoidance of all doubts that on 4th September 2014 a High Court entered judgment in my favour recognizing that my alleged dismissal for misconduct was illegal, and wrong as it was without due process of law.”
He went on further to state that Gbevlo Lartey at some point in time sent “officials of the BNI to search my residence, arrest me and detain me for hours on 6th December 2012, without a Court warrant on the very eve of 2012 Election when tensions were very high in the country could have caused mayhem in the country if I had invited the media and others to my residence that day?
“I refused to be used by him as a scape goat in causing any upheavals that might lead to confusion and God knows what, at the nick of the elections! Does Gbevlo-Lartey know whose votes would have been affected most if I had made his illegal search, arrest, and detention at the BNI public on that day even if the election still went ahead?
“Did Gbevlo-Lartey have the authority of the President to cause the search, my arrest and detention on the eve of an election with dire probable consequences for the nation? He did not! The President told my emissaries latter that he was not informed, was not aware, let alone to instruct him on that critical day in the nation’s history: the President undertook to deal with the matter. I prevented whatever unconstitutional intentions, if any, Gbevlo-Lartey might have had to use me innocently for: I preserved the dignity of Ghana as a democracy!”
