Martin Amidu has in a suit filed in the Supreme Court countered Alfred Woyome's motion to stop him from orally examining Woyome.

Mr Amidu, a former Attorney General , deposed in an affidavit that said the premise of Woyome's "application for stay of proceedings is frivolous, vexatious and an abuse of the process of the Court and ought to be refused."

He also argued that Woyome's application is “intended to subvert the order of this court dated 16th November 2016.”

“I oppose the application for stay of proceedings on the main ground that it discloses no reasonable ground or grounds for the making of an application for stay of proceedings to this Court pending the discharge or reversal of the ruling and order of this Court dated 16th November 2016 aforesaid to warrant its consideration by this Court,” he said.

“Furthermore, the mere allegation that the 3rd Defendant/Applicant is dissatisfied with and aggrieved by the said ruling or that there had been misdirection or a series of them is not a fair, just, or special circumstance warranting an application for the grant of stay of proceeding in this action,” he argued.

The Supreme Court on Thursday postponed Woyome's application to block Amidu's oral examination.

According to the judge Justice Enin Yeboah, his decision was due to the late service of the application on both the Attorney General and Martin Amidu. He further added that he wanted to give a fair hearing to all parties so no one will feel persecuted as claimed by Woyome.

Woyome has filed two processes is seeking a review of the ruling granting Amidu's request to examine him and second seeking to stay proceeding pending the determination of the review.

The processes on Thursday hindered the cross-examination of Woyome by Amidu over the refund of the judgment debt paid him.
