Attorney-General To Appeal Woyome’s Judgment

The AG has stated that it will keep fighting till it retrieves all monies from Alfred Woyome.

The state has indicated it will appeal the acquittal and discharge of businessman Alfred Agbesi Woyome.

"We disagree completely with the judgement of the court,” the Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, Mrs Marietta Brew Appiah-Opong said in an interview with Graphiconline.

“We are applying for a copy of the judgement, study it carefully and appeal accordingly,” Mrs Appiah-Opong noted.

One of her predecessors, Mrs Betty Mould-Iddrisu, in 2010 advised that Woyome be paid the amount.

According to the court, the state’s criticism of Mrs Mould-Iddrisu was “misplaced,” because she (Mrs Mould-Iddrisu) acted on advice from lawyers from the Ministry of Finance, the Attorney-General’s department and other consultants.

Woyome was Thursday morning acquitted and discharged by the High Court on two counts of defrauding by false pretence and causing financial loss to the state.
