Woyome ‘runs’ to Supreme Court for cover

In what observers have described as legal gymnastics, embattled businessman, Alfred Woyome, has once again filed a fresh suit at the Supreme Court seeking to halt all processes intended to retrieve the GHC51 million judgment debt wrongfully paid to 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 is 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 re-pay the judgment debt, did not show up court in court today, Monday, claiming that 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 Supreme 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 Trasacco to value the property.

The court presided over by a sole judge, Justice Alfred Benin, described the application as one without merit hence his decision.

The ruling by the court paved 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.
