The much anticipated cross examination of businessman Alfred Agbesi Woyome by Martin Amidu was expected to come on tomorrow, Thursday November 24, but is now at risk of being called off.
The maverick politican, former Attorney General under the later President Atta-Mills, had been scheduled to take on the businessman one on one in the Supreme Court Thursday, to get him to answer questions on how the Ghc 51.2m judgement debt was squandered by him and who the possible beneficiaries were.
But some last minute maneuvering by lawyers of Woyome seems destined to stop the cross. According to myjoyonline, a motion filed last minute at the court is geared at the ‘propriety’ of the November 16 ruling handed down by Justice Anin Yeboah.
“TAKE NOTICE that counsel for and on behalf of the applicant herein will move this honorable court praying for an order for the reversal of the ruling dated 16th November 2016 of His Lordship Anin Yeboah JSC sitting as a single justice in the afore-mentioned case.” the request for review from Woyome’s lawyers reads.
Accordingly, a panel of judges of the nation’s highest court would sit tomorrow to review the decision, before making one on the status of the much anticipated cross examination.
