Supreme Court throws out Woyome’s application

The Supreme court has thrown out an application filed by Alfred Agbesi Woyome challenging the valuation of his properties by the state.

Woyome’s lawyer on Monday filed a motion challenging the orders the state acted on to evaluate some properties of the judgement debtor and requested of the court to declare the actions of the state illegal but the sole judge, Justice Alfred Benin ruled in favour of the state.

Counsel for Woyome, lawyer Buabeng argued in his motion challenging the legality of the order that, a first one granted by the court in January, 2015 subject to a renewal after a year had not reached a time of renewal but the state secured another in January 2017.

The court ruled that the state properly secured an order.

The court gave reasons that because the first writ of execution was still valid for the evaluation and that there was not even a need for the state to have gone for another to execute the evaluation.

The Deputy State Attorney, Godfred Dame thinks series offailed applications filed by Woyome is a delay tactics being played.

the trial Judge, Alfred A. Benin said the writ was without merit, as the second order issued by the court authorising the valuation of the properties on 9 January 2015 under Order 44 Rule 9(1)(2) of CI 47 was relevant and the Attorney General adhered to it.

The court therefore adjourned the hearing of the oral examination to October 30, 2017.

It will be recalled that Mr Woyome had filed a writ aiming to stop the oral examination by Deputy Attorney General Godfred Dame.

The Supreme Court was to continue the oral examination on October 16 2017 but Mr Woyome’s lawyer, Sarfo Buabeng told the court that his client is sick and has been given a two-week excuse duty to rest.
