The Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram, Sam George, has blasted Martin Amidu over his support for the discharge of the Delta 8, saying he is being partisan and hypocritical.
In a Facebook rant, he accused Mr Amidu of turning a blind eye to multiple case of abuse, persecution and harassment being perpetrated by sympathizers of the governing New Patriotic Party.
He said: “He was asleep or away when ASP Nanka Bruce was assaulted in the precincts of the Presidential Villa.
“He was asleep or away when homes of appointees in the past administration were raided by marauding hoodlums hiding under the guise of a party taskforce.
“He was asleep or away when the brazen conduct of party affiliated thugs led to the death of 19 young men and women in Kintampo.
“He was asleep or away when a presiding judge was attacked by party hoodlums. He finds his voice when the perpetrators are shamefully freed but was silent when Her Lordship was attacked.
“He was asleep or away when the future of this Nation has been mortgaged for conniving family and friends through a fictitious bond issue.
“Mr Citizen Vigilante, your moral high horse has bolted months ago. Your claim of seeking what is just, right and honest is lame. Your considerations Sir are partisan to say the least.
“I only wish you would have risen beyond partisanship and hypocrisy but alas, if wishes were horses, beggars would ride.”
His comments come after Mr Amidu came to the defence of the state attorney in the Ashanti Region that was involved in the release of the infamous Delta 8.
A Kumasi Circuit court presided over by Her Honour, Patricia Amponsah was forced to discharge the accused persons who allegedly aided the escape of 13 of their colleagues standing trial for assaulting the president’s Security Coordinator for the Ashanti Region.
Explaining the decision the prosecutor, ACP Okyere Darko, said there was not enough evidence to support the charges levelled against the accused persons. He added that he had orders from the Attorney General Gloria Akufo to drop the charges against them. The state attorney that handled the case has been criticised by both the government (which denied green lighting the release) and the public for his handling of the case.
However, in an article, which has become Amidu’s regular way of social commentary, he said upon assessment of the case, he feels that the state-attorney in charge of the case of Delta 8 handled it professionally.
