- Woyome has has petition against the assessment of his properties squashed
- Supreme Court has given government the power to chase after his property
The Supreme Court has turned down a petition by Alfred Woyome preventing government to chase after his properties following moves to retrieve all cash paid him by government in a judgement debt.
It all happened when the judge superintending Woyome’s petition described it as lacking merit.
What this means is that government now has the power to embark on a mad hunt down for the properties of Woyome so as to value and sell them off.
It has been three years since government has engaged in a legal tussle with Woyome after the wrongful payment of 51.2 million cedis to him by the erstwhile NDC government.
So far, Alfred Woyome has only paid four million cedis - an amount which deputy Attorney-General Godfred Dame as "paltry with remaining payments not forthcoming".
