The Judgment Debt Commission has recommended in its final report that businessman Alfred Agbesi Woyome should refund with interest, the GHC51.2 million that was paid to him "fraudulently" for work he claimed he did for Ghana.
"The Commission recommends that in line with the review decision of the Supreme Court, the State must take all necessary steps to re-call the money paid to Alfred Agbesi Woyome from him with interest," the Commission’s report recommended.
According to the Sole Commissioner, Justice Yaw Apau, "there was no basis for the payment of the sum of over GHC 51 million to Alfred Agbesi Woyome."
"This is because he was not entitled to any such payment as the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) rightly found and stated in its interim report," the report stated.
The report also described the payment to Mr. Woyome “inordinate and at the same time fraudulent”.
