Embattled businessman Alfred Woyome has finally refunded GH¢4 million to state coffers, making part payment of the GH¢51.2 million he owes in judgement debt.
Woyome, through his team of lawyers, have promised to pay the outstanding balance by quarterly installments of GH¢5 million, commencing April 1, 2017.
The attorney-general and minister of justice, Marietta Brew Appiah-Opong, confirmed the development stating that her outfit had so far received GH¢4 million.
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.
