The Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu, has cautioned the Board of the Metro Mass Transit Ltd. (MMT) not to tamper with the evidence against Managing Director, Bennet Aboagye who has been accused of fraudulent deals at the company.

In a letter to the Board, Amidu said his office has been informed about some shady deals involving Bennet Aboagye adding that his office is in the process of being composed in accordance with its establishing statutes with the necessary professional staff to enable it function effectively.

He said nobody at MMT should tamper with evidence.

The letter in part read "while Metro Mass Transit Ltd is at liberty to invoke its administrative procedures to address purely administrative infractions of its regulations, care ought to be taken in that, the process does not compromise the integrity of the eventual criminal investigation to be conducted by us.

"Nothing should be done that may be interpreted as calculated to interfere with any witness or witnesses or the complainant in the pending complaint. Notice also ought to be taken of the fact that any obstruction of this office from performing a function under the Act 959 may constitute an offence."

The letter added that the complaint "will be fairly and impartially investigated as soon as arrangements underway for the purpose are compiled."
