Don’t discontinue case against me - Woyome tells Gov’t

Businessman Alfred Agbesi Woyome has asked government prosecutors not to discontinue the criminal case against him in order for him to prove his innocence.

He said he wanted the issue in court to be prosecuted to its logical conclusion, maintaining he is innocent.

According Mr. Woyome, a discontinuation of the case will be of great disservice to him because that will not bring out the full facts of the case.

“I will not comment further on the substantive issues before the court; no matter how long it takes the prosecution and the government to make sure that they finish this prosecution with their witnesses we will stand patiently and wait that justice is done.”

“One thing I will not want to happen is for government to file nolle prosequi; I will not appreciate it. They should finish the case; a lot of resources of the state have been used in all this case.”

“My crime was going to court and challenging government and winning the case,” he noted.

It will be recalled that about in 6 adjournments, state prosecutors have failed to present any witness in the case.

Mr. Woyome is on record to have expressed his frustrations about the happenings whilst other groups have also voiced out against the government in the way it is handling the matter.

Speaking to journalist after a judgment in his favor at the Court of Appeal, Alfred Woyome prayed that the criminal case against him will proceed smoothly.

He maintains that is the only way he will be vindicated.
