“Whether he likes it or not he’ll cough the money. The Supreme Court has already determined the case that he didn’t have a valid contract before the money was paid," Mr Baako said.
“It has no long-term effect, it won’t get anywhere”, he said, adding “he will lose and lose so badly,” he said.
The African Court on Human and People’s Rights (ACHPR) in Tanzania, on November 24, ordered Ghana to suspend all efforts to retrieve the GH₵51.2 million judgement debt paid to businessman, Alfred Agbesi Woyome, until the court determines an appeal filed by the businessman, who argues that his human rights are being abused by Ghana’s Supreme Court.
The businessman Alfred Agbesie proceeded to the African Human Rights Court when the government began a valuation of his properties in an attempt to retrieve Ghc51 million wrongfully paid to him in a judgement debt.
But Ghana’s Supreme Court on Tuesday ignored the African Court ruling and asked the government to proceed with its attempt to retrieve the sum.
Speaking on Accra-based Peace FM, Mr Baako said Woyome’s decision to go to the Tanzanian based Human Rights court was a waste of time.
But “Whether he likes it or not he’ll cough the money. The Supreme Court has already determined the case that he didn’t have a valid contract before the money was paid.
“That one is settled, it is no longer in dispute. So heads or tail, he’ll pay the money,” he said.
Kweku Baako’s worry, however, is why the officials involved in the payment of the GHS51.2 million judgement debt were yet to be apprehended.
“Those political functionaries, the ministers, deputy ministers and party top shots who facilitated that payment, we haven’t yet looked at them.
“A thorough investigations into the conduct of those people should be initiated,” he said.
