Do not tamper with evidence – Amidu cautions MMT

Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu, has warned the board of the Metro Mass Transit Ltd. (MMT), not to tamper with evidence as it investigates the alleged shady deals involving the Managing Director of the company, Bennet Aboagye.

In a letter to the Board of the MMT, Mr. Amidu said there would be a criminal investigation into the matter following a similar petition presented to his office.

“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.”

The MMT set up a five-member committee to investigate Mr. Aboagye over the alleged ‘filthy deals’.

He was subsequently asked by the Board of MMT to proceed on leave to allow for investigations internally.

Mr. Martin Amidu in his letter to the MMT, said no obstruction will be tolerated.

“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.”

He also assured that the complaint “will be fairly and impartially investigated as soon as arrangements underway for the purpose are compiled.”
