The opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) has accused some government officials of conniving with businessman Alfred Agbesi Woyome to defraud the state in the matter of the GhȻ51.2million judgment debt that was paid in 2010.

Addressing a press conference on Tuesday on the acquittal and discharge of Mr Woyome by an Accra High Court, Communications Director of the NPP Nana Akomea accused state prosecutors of deliberately putting up a weak case that led to the state’s defeat in the matter.

The NPP therefore charged President John Mahama and the Attorney General to prosecute all state officials who have been mentioned in connection with the case.

An Accra High Court on Thursday acquitted and discharged Mr Woyome of charges of causing financial loss to the state and defrauding by false pretences.

Trial judge John Ajet-Nassam said the State could not convince the court that the financier of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) caused financial loss to the state and also defrauded the state.

The Attorney General has filed an appeal.
