The Member of Parliament for Asante Akim North, Andy Appiah-Kubi, says he still stands by what he said when he appeared before the OSP in reference to the business man who allegedly attempted bribing MPs who had called for the resignation of the Finance Minister.
The Office of the Special Prosecutor concluded its investigations into the alleged bribery scandal in Parliament.
The OSP said it had to conclude the prove because the main accuser, Andy Appiah-Kubi was not cooperating with the investigation.
The OSP in the report disclosed that the Majority Leader, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu who also made a similar claim “denied direct knowledge of the matter” during the probe.
It said “Mr. Appiah-Kubi’s refusal to cooperate with the investigation and his refusal to disclose the identity of the suspect are most regrettable. It is quite perplexing for a Member of Parliament to level accusations of attempted bribery on a person (whether certain or uncertain) in a most spectacular and public manner on a network of a major media house and then stage a bizarre volte-face by refusing to cooperate with the investigation and refusing to disclose and/or confirm the identity of the suspect.”
However, speaking to journalists in Kumasi after appearing before the NPP Vetting Committee, Mr. Appiah-Kubi said he will provide his response to the OSP on Saturday.
According to him, the issues being discussed bother on law and ethics.
“It is about law and ethics, and the issues in the report are based on law and ethics, so we will deal with them.
“I will give a rendition of law and ethics on Saturday, and I still stand by what I said, and he [the OSP] has confirmed what I said, so that is all.”
