The Economic, Financial and Tax Court 2 of the Accra High Court will rule on the submission of no case filed by businessman Alfred Agbesi Woyome on the GHC 51 million judgement debt saga on April 17, 2014.

The court presided over by His Lordship, Johnson Ajet Nassam set the date after the Attorney General’s Department filed its response to Mr. Woyome’s submission.

The Attorney General’s Department filed a response on March 28, 2014. Embattled businessman, Alfred Agbesi Woyome is being tried for wilfully causing financial loss to the state among other charges.

Mr. Woyome obtained a 51 million Ghana Cedis judgment debt payment, but the state contends the payment was obtained fraudulently.

Citi News’ reporter, Karim Naatogmah reported that on April 17, the judge will either dismiss or uphold Mr. Woyome’s submission of no case…”.

The state filed a civil suit to retrieve millions of monies it paid mistakenly to Mr Alfred Agbesi Woyome.

The Attorney-General is therefore seeking an order for the refund of the judgement debt of GH¢51,283,480.59 paid to Mr Woyome because, according to the state, it was procured by fraudulent means.
