Special Prosecutor (SP) Martin Alamisi Amidu has revealed that apart from bribery, the crimes of impersonation and forgery were also discovered in his investigation into the Airbus SE  scandal.

In a statement, the SP said their investigations disclosed that the suspects claimed they were university graduate, civil servants, which is impersonation, and also forged documents while applying for the acquisition of a Ghanaian passport.

“The investigation into the Airbus SE bribery case in Ghana has been so thorough that it has even unearthed the suspected commission of other related crimes of impersonation as graduates of the University of Ghana, a civil servant, and forgeries in the application for the acquisition of a Ghanaian passport connect to this bribery case”, the statement disclosed.

He also noted that his Office built a strong investigation that warranted the Interpol Red Alert for Samuel Adam Mahama and three other persons in the Airbus scandal.

Samuel Adam Mahama is being charged with the offence of acting in collaboration with a public officer for the public officer’s private profit and accepting a bribe to influence a public officer.

The Special Prosecutor further assured Ghanaians that, despite all the manpower and structural resource constraints militating against the operations of the SP’s office, they will continue to treat crime simply as crime in fulfilling his mandate of fighting corruption without fear, favour, affection and ill will.”
