A Ghanaian, Richard Asante Yeboah has petitioned the Chief Justice to allow filming in the Supreme Court during the oral examination of businessman, Alfred Agbesi Woyome by former Attorney General, Martin Amidu.

Mr. Yeboah believes allowing live cameras in the court room would ensure transparency in the process and ensure that Ghanaians are updated “on how our Tax-cedi was expended in this Woyome debacle.”

He further argues that the move “would equally end the usual media spin that characterizes court room reporting and throw more light on the matter especially the incessant tantrums and accusations of Mr. Alfred Agbesi Woyome to the effect that the apex court of the land, the Supreme Court has sidestepped the constitution and has rather chosen to persecute him.”

The only time Ghana’s Chief Justice allowed cameras in the court room was during the Election Petition case in 2012.

The Supreme Court on Wednesday granted an application by former Attorney General to orally examine Alfred Woyome over his payment of the 51 million cedis judgement debt paid him by the state.

The judge Justice Enin Yeboah ordered the business man to appear before the court on the 24th of November for the examination.

Justice Enin Yeboah in his ruling said the application was granted because there was no formal evidence of execution of the court’s order for the money to be retrieved hence the decision.

Mr Amidu's application follows a notice filed by the Attorney General’s Department at the Supreme Court to discontinue the case it had earlier filed.

Meanwhile, Martin Amidu has indicated that the GHc51 million judgment debt paid embattled businessman Alfred Agbesi Woyome, can only be retrieved if Ghanaians vote for a change in government.

In his latest epistle written to the media, he accused the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) of showing a lack of will to retrieve the money from Woyome.

He maintains that he is only putting Ghana first in his thoughts and only entreating others to do same.
