Ghana’s Special Prosecutor Mr Martin Amidu and Auditor-General, Mr Daniel Domelevo, are superheroes who have gained international admiration, the Danish Ambassador to Ghana, Tove Gegnbol, has said.
She noted that Ghana is blessed to have these two gentlemen who are “completely independent of powerful interests” in the society.
Speaking at the launch of the Ghana Integrity Awards in Accra on Wednesday, 14 August 2019, Ms Gegnbol said: “Ghana is fortunate to have two such persons, who, in my view, are superheroes when it comes to combating corruption”.
“One of the persons is the Special Prosecutor and anti-corruption person Martin Amidu; and the other one is the Auditor-General Daniel Domelevo.”
She added: “I had the pleasure of travelling with both fine respectable gentlemen to the International Conference on anti-corruption last year in October. It made a deep impression on me to see how participants from other countries admired the two.
“The fact that the audit reports are published as soon as they are edited is meeting best international practices.”
She further commended the decision by President Nana Akufo-Addo to appoint Mr Amidu as the first Special Prosecutor of Ghana.
“The president made a bold move when an election promise was put into practice and it was even more remarkable that he appointed the person who was completely independent of powerful interests,” she said.
