I’m prepared to face Martin Amidu in court – NDC minister reveals

Former deputy Attorney General, Dominic Ayine, has disclosed that he is ready to face off with Martin Amidu if he gets the opportunity.

According to him, even though the special prosecutor nominee has an impeccable reputation, he will still have to prove his superiority of cases in court to achieve results.

“The criminal standard is to prove beyond reasonable doubt, I think that even if you appoint God as the prosecutor, God must be able to marshal evidence that meets the standard, so I am not bothered that Martin has been appointed. He is hardworking and he will do a great job. But if the evidence doesn’t measure up to the standard, an impartial adjudicator will dismiss the case, so that should not send shivers down the spine of anybody either NDC or NPP.

He further stressed that ,“In the last election Martin was fighting in the corner of the NPP, he denounced NDC officials as corrupt so that is where maybe the partisanship will come in, but for me it doesn’t matter if he is partisan or nonpartisan. According to him, “I have never feared any lawyer in my practice, if I have to meet Martin Amidu as defense counsel for anybody, I will gladly do it, I’m prepared and I’m ready,”
