The former Attorney General and Minister of Justice under the John Dramani Mahama government, Marietta Brew Appiah-Oppong, have been appointed to a role at the International Criminal Court (ICC).
Mrs Appiah-Oppong has been named to a three year term on the ICC’s Court of Arbitration.
Businessman Alfred Agbesi Woyome has paid back a sum of Ghc 4m to the state, the first step in paying back the Ghc 51.2 judgement debt wrongly paid him, as ordered by the Supreme Court.
The state had been having a torrid time enforcing the Supreme Court’s judgement, and met significant backlash when the Attorney General decided to withdraw a motion meant to compel Woyome to reveal his current assets – a move many saw as killing all interest by the state in retrieving the money.
Pressure Group OccupyGhana has expressed dismay with the decision of the Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Marietta Brew Appiah Oppong, to discontinue a motion in the case to retrieve the Ghc 51m judgement debt owed the state by businessman Alfred Agbesi Woyome.
In a statement sent out after the news broke about government’s decision, OccupyGhana said the NDC government have never been serious about retrieving the money from Woyome because he is one of theirs and they are scared of what he might reveal about his accomplices if pursued too much.
