The Attorney General’s Department on Monday, March 17 failed to file their responses to a submission of no case filed by businessman, Alfred Agbesi Woyome who is standing trial for the GHC 51 million paid to him as a judgement debt.
Mr. Woyome in his application prayed the court to dismiss the case and by extension acquit and discharge him.
Citi News’ Abdul Karim Naatogmah reported that Senior State Attorney, Matthew Amponsah told the Economic, Financial and Tax Court 2 of the Accra High Court presided over by His Lordship, Johnson Ajet Nassam that the Attorney General’s Department underestimated the volume of Mr Woyome’s submission of no case.
Council for the State however, pleaded for an additional two weeks to file a response to Mr. Woyome’s submission of no case and the presiding judge accordingly adjourned the case to March 31, 2014.
Mr. Woyome on February 10, 2014 filed an application of no case and prayed the court to dismiss the case. The AG’s department was expected to respond within two weeks, but failed to do so.
