‘Strange’ money hitting my account – Martin Amidu

'Strange’ money hitting my account – Martin AmiduSpecial Prosecutor Martin Amidu has revealed that some heavy amount of money in the past days has been deposited in his bank account from an unknown source.

“On 3rd August 2018, I was amazed when I went to one of the branches of my Bank to make a cash withdrawal by cheque from my current account only to be informed that the balance to my credit on the account had leaped more than five-fold1from my last balance on 7th July 2018. My account had been credited on 19th July 2018 with a transferred payment.” he disclosed in his latest epistle.

Realising the development, Amidu claimed he instructed his bankers to return the unusual money credited to his account and trace the unknown payer adding that “As punishment for accepting the automated transfer into my current account without notifying me or without my consent, I instructed the paying agency to pay the agreed sum into my savings account at a different Bank.”

Mr Amidu continues to reveal that he took similar steps in countermanding the transfer of money into his current account.

“…When in the year 2015 as narrated elsewhere (in my contribution to the recent double salary scandals) the same Bank holding my current account accepted a transfer of money into my account without notice to me or my consent.”
