Judgement Debt: AG wrong to drag me to court-Woyome

Alfred Agbesi Woyome has described as wrong the move by the Attorney General (AG) to drag him to court for an oral examination on a GH₵51 million-judgement debt awarded him in 2010 by the state.

The Supreme Court on Monday began hearing the oral examination of businessman Woyome and he has described it as mistaken move.

Mr. Woyome told the Supreme Court at the oral examination that, he had a payment plan with the AG of which he was adhering to and hence was surprised that the AG took the action to court.

Woyome was earlier seeking to stop the Attorney General from orally examining him in connection with attempts by the state to retrieve GH₵51.2million from him.

However, the Supreme Court dismissed the application, saying that it had no basis.

The oral examination is bordering on whether Mr Woyome owed the state any debt and whether he had “any property for satisfying the judgement of this court, dated July 29, 2014’’.

The oral examination is also based on whether he “has any means of satisfying the judgement of this court, dated July 29, 2014’’ and the manner in which he “used the money paid to him by the state’’.

A Deputy AG, Godfred Dame, is leading the oral examination.
