The Supreme Court will on Tuesday rule on whether or not Mr Martin Amidu should be granted leave to orally examine Mr Alfred Agbesi Woyome on his assets in relation to the retrieval of the Ghc51million judgement debt money.
At the court’s sitting on Thursday, the Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Mrs Marietta Brew-Appiah Oppon argued that Mr Amidu’s intervention would be unconstitutional.

Mr Amidu has filed an application at the Supreme Court, praying it to allow him to examine businessman Woyome, on his assets as part of efforts to retrieve the Ghcc51 million from him.

But the AG who was represented in court on Wednesday by her deputy, Mr Dominic Ayeni, in opposing the application said Mr Amidu was violating the constitution by coming to court to retrieve the money as it was only the AG’s office that was mandated by law to do so. 

The AG also prayed the court to expunge certain parts of Mr Amidu’s affidavit alleging that President John Mahama ordered the AG to discontinue the suit, which also sought to examine Mr Woyome over the payment of the amount. 

He claimed the allusions in paragraphs 9 to 21 of Mr Amidu’s affidavit were scandalous statements made against the Attorney General.

The court gave the date to rule after Mr Ayine moved an application praying the court to do so.
