Their homes have since been searched by security officials holding search warrant for documents related to the power plant deal.
On Tuesday, 25 July, Dr Donkor had his laptops and pen drives seized by the officers when they went to the residence with a search warrant.
Dominic Ayine and John Jinapor's houses were invaded on Friday.
AMERI was tasked to build the power plants, own and operate it for 5years before finally transferring it to the government of Ghana at a total cost of $510m.
According to the Philip Addison committee report set up by Energy Minister Boakye Agyarko, the contract was overpriced by some $150 million.
The deal was for the supply of gas turbines to Ghana, which was to provide additional power to the national grid to ease the biting load shedding exercise that plagued the country at the time.
The committee also recommended to the government to recall owners of the Dubai-based company for renegotiation and that if the company refused to honour the invitation for re-negotiation, the government should renounce the agreement on grounds of fraud.
However, Speaker of Parliament, Professor Aaron Mike Oquaye gave an assurance that security officials will be invited to discuss the raids in the homes of the MPs.
His assurance followed an appeal made by the Minority Chief Whip Alhaji Muntaka Mubarak, calling on him to restrain the security personnel from raids in homes of some MPs’ suspected to be linked to AMERI power deal.
