Supreme court to rule on Woyome’s application to stop oral examination

The Supreme court will today, July 4 rule on an application by businessman Alfred Agbesi Woyome seeking to block the oral examination by the Attorney General on how he intends paying off the GHS51.2 million judgment debt awarded him.

Mr Woyome last week filed a fresh application praying the court to stay proceedings on the oral examination in view of the fact that he had filed a review in the case.

It would be recalled that at the last sitting at the court Lawyer Ken Anku had argued that his client faced an irreparable damage if the court grants the AG’s wish without waiting for a decision on a review they have filed at the Supreme court.

The State represented by the Deputy Attorney General, Godfred Dame contended that the provision in Article 134 (b) does not apply because the State is simply seeking to enforce the judgement of the Supreme Court against the Applicant (Mr. Alfred Woyome).

The AG added that the grant of stay of proceedings was discretionary and the Applicant ought to satisfy the court why their application for stay should be granted.
