Former President Jerry John Rawlings has denied making any public statement on the controversial Airbus bribery scandal.

The false statements, according to the office of the former President have been put out by some unscrupulous persons and purporting to have been authored by him.

Reports have emerged that Aircraft manufacturer, Airbus paid bribes to some senior officials during the Mills-Mahama regime.

The reports which emerged after the company admitted in a UK court that it paid bribes to officials in some five countries including Ghana between 2009 and 2015 have ignited rumours in Ghana.

There are certain reports attributed to Mr Rawlings in the media and alleged to have emanated from the former President’s office in relation to the matter.

But a Press Statement from the former President’s office said:”We wish to advise members of the public that the former President has issued no statement on the Airbus bribery scandal. The former President has also not commented on the recent distribution of ambulances to constituencies neither has he issued a statement on the Malawian election dispute ruling.

“Perpetrators of these falsehoods are warned to desist from such acts.”

The statement noted that the public who are unsure of any statement must verify such publications on his official Facebook page – https://webfacebookcom/President.J.J.Rawlings
