Woyome Saga: Supreme Court Grants Martin Amidu’s Request
The Supreme Court (SC) of Ghana has granted a request by former Attorney General, Martin Amidu to allow him cross examine businessman Alfred Agbesi Woyome.
The court presided over by Justice Anin Yeboah has therefore ordered Alfred Woyome to appear before it on Thursday 24th November, 2016.
Martin Amidu’s application praying the court to allow him to cross examine Woyome over the refund of the 51 Million Cedi judgment debt paid him follows 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 (Woyome) with liberty to reapply.”8
