The Supreme Court has dismissed an application for stay of proceedings by Businessman Alfred Woyome, seeking to halt an oral examination by the Attorney General.
According to the court, presided over by a single judge, Justice Alfred Benin, the application had no basis.
Mr. Woyome prayed the Supreme Court last week to stay proceedings on the oral examination since he had filed for a review in the case.
This follows a request granted the Attorney-General’s department to question the businessman on whether the properties he owns are able to be used to offset the debt owed the state, as well as how he spent the judgment debt wrongfully paid to him.
His lawyer, Ken Anku, argued that, his client will face an irreparable damage if the oral examination is allowed to take place before the ruling on their review case, but a deputy Attorney General, Godfred Dame, opposed the application describing the reasons as incompetent and unmeritorious.
