- Woyome is saying this is the time for Akufo-Addo to defend his human right credentials
- He says he has disobeyed orders of the court therefore doesn't deserve humiliation
The embattled National Democratic Congress (NDC) financier, Alfred Agbesi Woyome has appealed to President Akufo-Addo to protect his fundamental human right against his ‘oppressors’.
According to the NDC man, Nana Akufo-Addo has touted his impeccable human right credentials for years and the time has come for him to prove to the world in his judgment debt case.
Mr Woyome who is standing trial for defrauding the state by false pretends to the tune of GH¢51.2million had his Trassaco residents in Accra besieged by armed military men last night.
Some unconfirmed reports say the team of police and military men were at the residence of the businessman to let some officials from the Lands Commission to value the cost of his mansion.
Speaking to Joy News in Accra hours after the incidence, the businessman said, "the President did not come through a coup and if the Constitution still gives me rights to seek justice until alI avenues have been exhausted, nobody can disrespect my human rights.”
He lamented that he has conducted himself creditably and has not done anything to disobey orders of the court. Therefore doesn’t deserve humiliation and harassment from state securities.
“If the executive is doing this alone [then] it is up to something but getting the judiciary involved raises serious human rights issue under this regime," he said.
The Supreme Court of Ghana had earlier ruled that the NDC financier had no valid contract with the state to deserve judgment debt, therefore was ordered to refund the GH ¢51.2million benefited back to the state.
But Mr Woyome has since been hopping from one international court to the other seeking an arbitration.
