The Attorney General’s department has served businessman 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".

An Accra High Court presided over by Justice John Ajet-Nassam freed Mr. Woyome who was facing a charge of causing financial loss to the state and defrauding the state by false pretenses.

The judge in his ruling said the state prosecution did a shoddy job and failed to provide enough evidence to back its claims.

The weak prosecution, he said, was a deliberate strategy by the government since Woyome’s conviction would be evidence that the government is ‘really corrupt’.
