Amidu cleared to examine Woyome
Embattled businessman Alfred Woyome has been ordered by the Supreme Court to appear in court for an oral examination by former Attorney General, Martin Amidu on the repayment of the judgment debt paid him. The order follows an application filed by Mr. Amidu for the Supreme Court to allow him to orally examine Woyome after the Attorney General (AG) discontinued the case.
According to the ruling by justice Anin Yeboah, the applicant has the right to do that because he personally came to court to get a judgment to have Mr. Woyome pay back the GHc51 million cash he recieved as judgment debt.
The judge also indicated that the application was granted because there was no evidence of execution before the court by the AG presently. Mr. Amidu’s action followed a move by the Attorney General’s (AG) office, led by the Minister for Justice, Marietta Brew Appiah-Oppong, to discontinue an oral examination of Mr. Woyome, despite serving an earlier notice.
The notice of discontinuance stated that “please take notice that the 1st Defendant Judgment Creditor [Attorney General] herein has this day [26th Day of October 2016] discontinued the present application to orally examine the 3rd Defendant Judgment Debtor [Alfred Agesi Woyome] with liberty to reapply.”
