The Supreme Court has set Tuesday November 15, as the day to rule on former Attorney General Martin Amidu’s application seeking to cross examine embattled businessman Alfred Agbesi Woyome.
Amidu’s application follows the Attorney General’s decision to discontinue an oral examination of Mr. Woyome despite serving an earlier notice to do.
He is praying the apex court gives him the chance to examine Mr. Woyome in the controversial GHC51 million judgement debt paid to him in 2010.
He accused government of being reluctant in enforcing the Supreme Court order asking for a retrieval the money from Mr. Woyome.
The AG’s department however, argued that Mr. Amidu’s application is unconstitutional.
Representing the AG, her deputy, Dominic Ayeni, said Mr. Amidu is violating the constitution by coming to court to retrieve the said money as it is only the AG’s office that is mandated by law to do so.
He thus call on the court to throw out Mr. Amidu’s application.
