A former partner of the Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, Mr Tony Lithur, has challenged Mr Martin Amidu to report him to the General Legal Council if he has any adverse findings against him.

“Martin Amidu, as a senior practitioner knows what to do if he has definite information of unethical conduct of the nature that he accuses me of. If he has any facts to support them, he should take them to the correct forum and he will receive an appropriate response,” Mr Lithur stated in an interview with the Graphiconline in Accra on Wednesday.

“The doors of the General Legal Council are wide open to him should he wish to take opportunity of that forum. Damaging a fellow practitioner’s reputation so publicly based on conjecture is much more unethical and quite irresponsible,”

Mr Lithur opined in reaction to Mr Amidu’s allegations of complicity against his firm in connection with the GHc51.2 million Woyome saga.

Mr Amidu issued a statement to Graphiconline on Tuesday, March 17, 2015, in reaction to Mr Lithur’s earlier interview to the Graphiconline where the latter had explained how his firm had had contact with Austro-Invest.

According to Mr Amidu, the Attorney-General deliberately left out the names of Austro-Invest and Mrs Betty Mould-Iddrisu, in her entry of judgement which sought to seek enforcement of the Supreme Court’s July 29, 2014 order to Woyome to refund the money.

He had argued that because her firm had had dealings with Austro-Invest in the past, there was the likelihood of her showing open bias towards Woyome and treating Austro-Invest leniently.

“The point should be made very clear that Lithur Brew & Company did not act for Austro-Invest in relation to the actual claim or steps taken to claim any compensation from Government. We were not aware Austro-Invest had given Woyome power of attorney to claim monies from government and were not part and did not advice Austro-Invest or Woyome on any of the processes leading to the payment of monies to Woyome,” Mr Lithur told the Graphiconline in the interview in Accra Wednesday.

“We were instructed by Austro-Invest only after monies had been paid to Woyome and he refused to pay Austro-Invest any part of it, on grounds that Austro-Invest did not play any particular role in the financial engineering based on which the claim and payment had been made.

The power of attorney given to Mr Woyome by Austro-Invest to pursue the claim with the Attorney General, the various steps that were taken by Woyome pursuant to that power, the meetings with government etc were all done without knowledge or advise from Lithur Brew,” counsel stated in response to Mr Amidu’s.
