The Attorney General’s Department has filed a notice at the Supreme Court to discontinue a case it filed about a week ago against businessman, Alfred Agbesi Woyome, in the controversial GHc51 million judgment debt saga.

In the earlier notice, the Attorney General would have orally examined Mr. Woyome on November 10, 2016.

But a notice of discontinuance has indicated that: “please take notice that the 1st Defendant Judgment Creditor [Attorney General] herein has this day [26th Day of October 2016] discontinued the present application to orally examine the 3rd Defendant Judgment Debtor [Alfred Agesi Woyome] with liberty to reapply.”

Woyome has been in the news since 2012 for allegedly putting in false claims to defraud the state to the tune of GH¢51.2 million, but the High Court and the Court of Appeal have cleared him of any wrongdoing.

However, the Supreme Court has directed him to refund the money, following which the Attorney-General’s office put in processes to recover the money.

The businessman, however, in April 2016 resisted attempts by officials of the Attorney General’s department and the Lands Commission to have access to his Kpehe residence for valuation.

Mr Woyome argued that the planned valuation was illegal.
