Case involving businessman Afred Agbesi Woyome in relation to a GHC51.2 million awarded to him as judgment debt has been adjourned sine die.

The Supreme Court adjourned indefinitely the review application of Justice Anin Yeboah's ruling permitting former Attorney General Martin Amidu to orally examine Woyome.

The adjournment follows an application filed by lawyer David Kojo Ametepe challenging the constitutionality of one Supreme Court judge interpreting the constitution instead of a panel of judges.

Woyome won the court judgment after he said a 2006 contract he had to renovate sports stadiums for Ghana’s hosting of the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations soccer tournament was unfairly canceled.

The award became known when lawmakers began looking into the Auditor-General’s report for 2010.

Mr Ametepe's application will be heard on December 13, 2016.

Justice Enin Yeboah ruled that Martin Amidu orally examines the man at the centre of the controversial GHC 51 million judgement debt saga.

On Thursday, December 1, Justice Anin Yeboah said he was obliged to stay the oral examination of Mr Woyome by Amidu therefore it was important for the proceedings to be put on hold since the review case may have a substantial impact on the pending oral examination.

The Supreme Court, however, adjourned the case to December 15, 2016 for hearing on the review case.
