Former President John Mahama has been asked to open himself up for a probe in respect of the Airbus bribery scandal.

A division of the London high court has found Airbus guilty of paying sweeteners to officials of the Government of Ghana at a time when then Vice-President Mahama was in charge of jet purchases for the country. The aircraft “chop-chop” deal, one of the subjects of a previous inquiry ordered by President Mills, was sanctioned by Mr Mahama. It figures prominently in the single largest fine imposed by a UK court on a corporate body found guilty of paying bribes.
