AG initiates moves to take over Woyome's house

The Attorney General and Minister for Justice has initiated moves to take over a residential property of Mr Alfred Agbesi Woyome who owes the state Ghc51million.

This follows the Supreme Court ruling that, the said money which he received from the state as a result of a judgment debt was acquired from an unconstitutional and invalid contract and ought to be refunded.

A letter from the AG’s Department signed by Mrs Dorothy Afriyie Ansah, a Chief State Attorney directed the Lands Commission to move in to value one of the residential properties of Mr Woyome located at Kpehe in Kokomlemle in Accra.

The letter which was copied to Mr Woyome requested that he grants access to the officers on Thursday June 2, 2016 at 10am.

It said Mr Charles Lartey, from the Civil Registry of the Attorney General’s Department will accompany the officers on Thursday at 10 am prompt.
