- Mr. Woyome prayed the Supreme Court to stay proceedings on the oral examination
- But the court said his plea did not hold enough substance
A suit filed by businessman Alfred Agbesi Woyome to stop the Attorney General from orally examining him has been thrown out by the Supreme Court.
Mr Woyome has been involved in a long-standing legal tussle with the state, following an attempt to retrieve GHS51.2 million paid to him by government in 2008.
The businessman was contracted to renovate the four major stadiums in Accra, Kumasi, Tamale and Cape Coast during the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations hosted in Ghana.
However, a ruling by the Apex court deemed the payment fraudulent, placing a charge on his properties and companies.
Anator Holding Company Limited, AAW Management Consulting Services, Anator Construction Company Limited, Green Township Security Services Company Limited, Woyome Brothers International Limited, Stewise Anator Company Limited, and Stewise Shipping Company Limited were all affected by the charge.
The Daily Heritage reported that the businessman was set to be orally examined by the Attorney General on July 24, however, it was suspended after Mr Woyome filed a suit against the oral examination.
However, on Tuesday, his suit was thrown out by the Supreme Court on the basis of lacking merits.
Presided over by Justice A.A Benin, the court established that Mr Woyome’s suit did not hold enough substance to stop his appearance before the Attorney General.
