Anti-corruption campaigner, Martin Amidu has said undercover journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, knows nothing about the whereabouts of Justice Ajet Nassam, one of the accused judges in the judicial corruption exposé.
Anas is a liar; he doesn’t know Ajet Nasam’s whereabouts - Amidu
Anas in an interview had stated that “I have my intelligence where he [Ajet [Nasam] is currently at …and I believe we will get there. I think that he outsmarted us and left but it’s not the end of the road yet.”
His comment follows revelations by Anas Aremeyaw Anas, who claimed that one of the implicated judges, Justice Ajet Nasam has left the country.
However, the former attorney General, Martin Amidu says the journalist blatantly lied about the judge. “…quoting Anas Aremeyaw Anas saying that he knew the whereabouts of Mr. Justice Ajet Nassam. I knew instantly that he was lying big time in the tradition of a covert agent. I had intelligence that Justice Nassam was in town and attends church in the glare of members of the Synagogue Church of All Nations on the Spintex Road on Sundays at the time the falsehood gained grounds that he had fled the country.”
Below is the full statement:
GOVERNMENT COVERT AGENT, ANAS, LIES GARGANTUANLY TO THE WHOLE WORLD AGAIN: BY MARTIN A. B. K. AMIDU
I read the news on Joy News yesterday 17 November 2015 quoting Anas Aremeyaw Anas saying that he knew the whereabouts of Mr. Justice Ajet Nassam. I knew instantly that he was lying big time in the tradition of a covert agent. I had intelligence that Justice Nassam was in town and attends church in the glare of members of the Synagogue Church of All Nations on the Spintex Road on Sundays at the time the falsehood gained grounds that he had fled the country.
In the Government covert agent’s own words: “‘I have my intelligence where he is currently at…and I believe we will get there. I think that he outsmarted us and left but it’s not the end of the road yet,’ he said on Joy FM’s Super Morning show, Tuesday.”
Had the covert government operator, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, agreed to my humble suggestion that we both meet on his announced media interviews at the studios of Citi FM or Joy FM or Starr FM yesterday to put the disagreement and allegations of unconstitutionality and illegally at rest once and for all, I would have pointed out to him and the public on the spot that he was lying about Justice Nassam and denigrating the competence of the police and other security agencies.
I staked my honour on the fact that the Ghana Police Service, the Bureau of National Investigations, Directorate of Defence Intelligence and other external and internal security and intelligence agencies were more capable and credible given sufficient funding to have handled the investigations without the use of a private covert agent like him. I feel vindicated that the Ghana Police Service has told the whole world that Anas Aremeyaw Anas lived to the real true character of a covert agent and lied big time to the public about Justice Nassam’s whereabouts.
I have said and written consistently that the textbook and traditional practice of covert operations is for the Government and its covert agents to deny when caught in their activities. Presidents Nixon and Reagan consistently denied their covert Watergate and Iran-Contra activities until their cover was blown in independent investigations appointed independently of the Government. Ghana needs such an investigation which would make it easy for me to speak in camera without any restraint. No rational being should expect the President or his covert agent, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, to admit to my insider information against them.
Anas Aremeyaw Anas has made full admissions and partial admission to my claims against the Government on using him to suppress public attention from political corruption in the true character of a cover agent’s deniability which I could not respond to yesterday. My time will come in spite of all his lies and denials yesterday. But this current big lie he has told to the whole world confirms my assertions that covert operators’ lie to cover their backs even when they know the true facts. He did not expect the police to expose him but I believe the intelligence and security agencies are gradually getting fed up with his persistent instructions and arrogance of portraying them as incompetent without his collaboration.
I wish to assure the public that I stand by everything I have said and wrote; time will and history will absolve me when all this is over. What is the next lie or denial Anas Aremeyaw Anas? Where is your integrity, accountability and transparency as a real anti-corruption crusader after this Gargantuan lie?
