The Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Marietta Brew Appiah-Oppong has proposed march 31 for the Supreme Court to begin hearing the appeal suit case of GHC 51.2 million paid to businessman Alfred Agbesi Woyome.

The AG’s department has served Alfred Agbesi Woyome with a writ of appeal to the High Court judgment that acquitted and discharged him for causing financial loss to the state and defrauding the state by false pretence.

In a writ served to him stated that “The judge erred in law when he stated that the prosecution had woefully failed to establish a case against the accused when he had established a prima facie case against him.

"That having called upon the accused person to open his defence, the judge had established a prima facie case against the accused person and his failure thereon to assess the defence of the accused person as against the evidence leveled by the prosecution is wrong.

"That the judge cannot be supported having regard to the evidence adduced at the trial.

"That the judge erred by displaying a biased assessment of the evidence of the prosecution and mounting unwarranted attacks on the prosecution. That the entire judgment is wrongful in law".

The notice will also be served Waterville Holdings (BVI) Limited.

That date will, however, be confirmed by the Court as per its listings.

The AG is praying the Supreme Court to give direction as to how the judgement debt illegally paid Mr Woyome should be retrieved.
