Give AG information for retrieval of ‘Waterville money’ – Supreme Court to Amidu

The Supreme Court has asked the Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu to sit with the Attorney General and provide the office with the needed information which will help in the retrieval of the €47,365,624 illegally paid to Waterville.

According to the court, though the suit filed by Mr. Amidu was aimed at helping the country retrieve the money, it did not have proper grounding as the Apex court had already made a decision on it.

It further asked the Attorney General who wanted the suit to be dismissed on the basis of incompetence to engage Martin Amidu in other to get the needed information he claims he has in his possession to help get the money paid.

Martin Amidu dragged the Attorney-General to the Supreme Court on grounds that the department failed to carry out an order to retrieve a €47 million judgment debt paid illegally to Waterville Holding.

Martin Amidu who filed the suit as a private citizen contends that it has been more than a year since the case, “Martin Amidu vs Attorney General & Waterville Holding (BVI) Limited By Martin A. B. K. Amidu” was determined by an Arbitration Tribunal but the order has not been carried out.
