Woyome in court again to halt processes intended to retrieve judgment debt

By PrimeNewsGhana

Embattled businessman Alfred Agbesi Woyome, has again filed a fresh suit at the Supreme Court seeking to halt all processes intended to retrieve the GHc51 million judgment debt wrongfully paid  him by the state.

This is the sixth application he has filed since the beginning of his oral examination by the Attorney General.

Mr Woyome had been praying the court to put on hold all processes to reclaim the money from him until a determination of another related case being heard at the African court.

Mr Woyome, who was expected to continue with the oral examination on how he intends to repay the judgment debt, did not show up in court today, Monday, claiming he is unwell.

The Supreme Court on October 20, 2017, dismissed an application by Mr Woyome, which sought to stop the seizure and valuation of his properties by the state.

The Court made the ruling in an application he had filed to stop the government from continuing with moves to seize and value his properties.

His application followed state officials storming one of his residences at Trasaco to value the property.

The Court presided over by a sole judge, Justice Alfred Benin, described the application as one without merit.

The ruling paved the way for the state to continue with the valuation of the properties of Mr. Woyome in its quest to retrieve the monies he owes the state.
