The Attorney General Has Informed The Supreme Court She's No Longer Interested In Chasing Alfred Woyome For The Ghc 51.m Judgement Debt

Woyome
The beginning of the end – of course they are no more interested in retrieving the money from Woyome – they never were.
The Attorney General has written to the Supreme Court notifying it of its decision to discontinue a new motion brought against businessman Alfred Agbesi Woyome which had earlier been approved by the court.
Government’s senior lawyer filed a motion last week demanding to orally examine Woyome under oath after attempts to retrieve the Ghc 51m hit a roadblock, a request that was granted.
However, Marietta Brew Appiah Oppong, the Attorney General and Minister of Justice, said in a notice of dicontinuance that government is no longer interested in pursuing the case.
“Please take notice that the 1st Defendant Judgment Creditor [Attorney General] herein has this day [26th Day of October 2016] discontinued the present application to orally examine the 3rd Defendant Judgment Debtor [Alfred Agesi Woyome] with liberty to reapply.” the motion sent to the Supreme Court read.
The decision has prompted widespread condemnation, as the motion is seen by many as the first move by government to ease off trying to retrieve the money at all, instead letting the case die a natural death whilst Woyome makes off with the money.
Woyome won a Ghc 51m judgement debt against government in 2009, claiming that he had not been paid for services rendered in a past deal. However, a later Supreme Court ruling ordered the businessman to pay back the money, although that has not happened to this day – and now it looks like it would never happen.
