Martin Amidu must prosecute former presidents of Ghana - Prof Adei

According to Prof Adei, Martin Amidu must not relent in his efforts to prosecute government officials who are corrupt.

According to him, Martin Amidu must not relent in his efforts to prosecute government officials who are corrupt.

He said some former presidents must be jailed or taken to Nsawam after their three-year immunity expires.

"If an MP or Minster is found to be corrupt, he cannot be said to be privileged, in fact, it has nothing to do with that. Even the presidents when they are corrupt, they have only three years when they get down not to be prosecuted, so, if you are a president and you ‘chop chop’, in three years if there is evidence, you’ll go to Nsawam and it’s high time some presidents went to Nsawam.

"What I’m saying is that: if there is evidence, thanks to Martin Amidu, if he finds something against a retired president, he should just prepare a dossier, three years when his immunity has expired, you catch them. The Special Prosecutor is not for me and the common man, it is for everybody," he said in an interview on 21 Minutes with KKB.
