President John Dramani Mahama has backed the Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Marietta Brew Appiah-Oppong, to retrieve the GH¢51.2 million paid to businessman Alfred Agbesi Woyome in judgement debt.

President Mahama wants “all lawful means” to be used to get the money to the state as ruled by the Supreme Court.

Though Mr Woyome was absolved of wrongdoing by an Accra High Court in the payment of the judgement debt, the Supreme Court had earlier ruled – through a suit filed by Former Attorney General Martin Amidu – that Woyome refunded the money to the state.

The Attorney General’s Department has already served a notice of appeal on Mr Woyome, calling the judgement of John Ajet-Nassam “wrongful”.

“I have the support of the president to pursue the appeal.” she said.

“I have the support of the president to use all lawful means to recover the money that the Supreme Court has said he should pay back and I intend to continue doing so.”

Mr Woyome has challenged the Attorney General to resign for receiving about $1 million from the Gh¢51.2m judgment debt.

According to Woyome, Mrs Marietta Brew Appiah-Oppong, whose firm - Lithur Brew and Co - benefitted from the famous judgment debt case while representing Astro Invest and Mpower in the same case before becoming A-G cannot appeal the case.
