It is wrong to impeach Kissi Agyebeng – Martin Kpebu tells Martin Amidu

Legal practitioner Martin Kpebu has expressed disagreement with Martin Amidu’s petition to remove Special Prosecutor Kissi Agyebeng from office, calling it unnecessary.

Mr Kpebu stated that it is premature for such action to be taken against Agyebeng, speaking on Adom FM’s morning show Dwaso Nsem on Friday.

“We have not gotten there yet, therefore it was unnecessary for the former Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu, to take that tandem. It’s good to criticize him, but to have him impeached is wrong,” he said.

Days after President Akufo-Addo forwarded a petition seeking the removal of Kissi Agyabeng as Special Prosecutor to the Chief Justice, new details have emerged.

The petition, dated April 30, 2024, was originally submitted to the President by Martin Amidu and then relayed to Justice Gertrude Torkonoo on May 6, 2024.

Amidu’s petition alleges procurement breaches in the acquisition of vehicles for the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) and misconduct involving judges and the administration of justice.

Further accusations include violations of citizens’ rights through arrests and detentions, infringements on the right to information, and improper personnel appointments.

Amidu also contends that the Special Prosecutor abused his authority by arresting individuals such as Cecilia Dapaah and Prof. Frimpong Boateng.

However, Mr. Kpebu maintains that despite the Special Prosecutor’s imperfections, he is performing well in his role.

“It’s not fair; generally, he has done well as Special Prosecutor. Kissi is independent-minded and very outspoken. He is the personification of integrity so why have him impeached if he is doing the right thing,” he quizzed.
