Businessman Alfred Agbesi Woyome has said the Supreme Court erred in its ruling allowing former Attorney General Martin Amidu to orally examine him concerning the GHc51.2million judgment debt paid by the State.

According to him, he is "determined to pay the money back", adding that he is doing so "under duress."

"I am paying back the money under duress. I feel that my rights are been trampled upon and feel persecuted," he noted.

Addressing the press at International Conference Centre in Accra Friday, he said, "I have been going to court; there were times that there would be two cases at the same time. This is the Attorney General who was pursuing me and doing all these against me, today because of the convenience, some people are saying that I am conniving with her, how can i be in connivance with her."

The Supreme Court granted an application by Mr Amidu to orally examine Woyome.

The judge Justice Enin Yeboah ordered the Woyome to appear before the court on November 24, for the examination.

Justice Enin Yeboah in his ruling said the application was granted because there was no formal evidence of execution of the courts order for the money to be retrieved hence the decision.

But Woyome said, "I wrote the cheque without writing who it is for because I was confused who the recipient should be."

"Alfred Woyome is determined to pay. Alfred Woyome has arrived at a payment structure with the Republic of Ghana through its constitutionally mandated Attorney General and Alfred Woyome will pursue that by God’s grace to make sure the orders of the courts are respected," he added.
