Private legal practitioner and member of the National Democratic Congress legal team Lawyer Godwin Edudzi Tamakloe has rubbished claims that Interpol has issued an arrest warrant for Foster Samuel Adams calling it a publicity gimmick.
Reports have indicated that the long lost but found brother of Ex-president John Mahama is wanted by the interpol following the approval of an Accra Circuit Court.
Adams Mahama is being charged for accepting a bribe and influencing a public official to act for the private profit of the public official.
Reacting to the News, Lawyer Edudzi Tamakloe said the special prosecutor has failed woefully in his position and is trying to use the situation to stay relevant.
“Quite clearly, you will see that this is a Special Prosecutor who is trying very hard to remain relevant in the midst of the confusion that we have seen and that is why I want us to treat this arrest warrant with the contempt that it deserves,” Edudzi Tamakloe said on Eye Witness News.
“At first glance, one would note that this is nothing but a typical government public relations gimmick. It is rubbish, it is of dubious validity and it is of no use. In the absence of any concrete evidence, this whole arrest warrant ought to be treated with contempt,” he continued.
“If this man had committed an act of bribery and corruption in the United Kingdom, the first person to effect his arrest will not be a Martin Amidu who has completely been rendered less useful under this administration. As we speak, the UK authorities are yet to effect the arrest of Adam Mahama.
“If you even look at the details, you realize this is much ado about nothing. Mr Alamisi Amidu wrote to the Serious Fraud Office. It has been more than four months now, and the Serious Fraud Office had basically ignored him. To prove his usefulness, he went to the Circuit Court in Ghana in May to procure the warrant of arrest.”
