Former President Jerry John Rawlings has expressed disappointment in the verdict of Mr Alfred Agbesi Woyome who was acquitted and discharged on the count of defrauding by false pretence.

Woyome was standing trial for allegedly defrauding the state of GH¢51.2 million.

“Today I read the newspaper and heard that they have released the thief called Woyome. Why? Because some of our friends in government who were part could not produce vital document for interrogation and this shows that they are thieves. So his collaborators made sure that he was released. So how would they arrest Woyome?” Rawlings asked.

Mr Justice John Ajet-Nasam took on the prosecution for failing to call former Attorney-General, Mrs Betty Mould Iddrisu, Rex Magnus Danquah, Ebo Barton Odro, Paul AsimenuSamuel Nerquaye-Tetteh and others who all had given written opinion that Woyome was entitled to the claim.

He said the State had also failed to put up a defence when Woyome went to the Commercial Court and, therefore, found it absurd for the state to turn around and accuse Woyome of causing financial loss.

The Judge queried, "Where lies the charge of causing financial loss when the state failed to fight the case on its merit at the Commercial Court?"
