The state has indicated it will appeal the acquittal and discharge of businessman Alfred Agbesi Woyome.

"We disagree completely with the judgement of the court,” the Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, Mrs Marietta Brew Appiah-Opong said in an interview with Graphiconline.

“We are applying for a copy of the judgement, study it carefully and appeal accordingly,” Mrs Appiah-Opong noted.

One of her predecessors, Mrs Betty Mould-Iddrisu, in 2010 advised that Woyome be paid the amount.

According to the court, the state’s criticism of Mrs Mould-Iddrisu was “misplaced,” because she (Mrs Mould-Iddrisu) acted on advice from lawyers from the Ministry of Finance, the Attorney-General’s department and other consultants.

Woyome was Thursday morning acquitted and discharged by the High Court on two counts of defrauding by false pretence and causing financial loss to the state.
