Government drags Woyome to court again over judgement debts

Embattled businessman, Alfred Woyome, is far from being a free man. The attorney general, Marietta Brew Oppong, has filed a new appeal seeking the court to question him over judgement debt accusations.

Alfred Agbesi Woyome has thus been ordered to appear before the court on Thursday November 10 to be examined orally on oath so government knows whether the he has "any property or other means of satisfying the Judgement.”

The letter to Woyome's lawyers state that “this order is to be served personally on the within-named Alfred Agbesi Woyome.”

In 2014, the Supreme Court ordered Woyome to pay back GH¢51 million fraudulently taken from the state after a former attorney general, Martin Amidu, challenged the legality of judgment debts paid the businessman.

Following delays in retrieving the money, the Supreme Court judges unanimously granted the Attorney-General clearance to execute the court’s judgment ordering Mr Woyome to refund the cash to the state.
