The Supreme Court will today, Thursday, 1 December continue hearing an application of stay of proceedings filed by businessman Alfred Woyome in an attempt to stop former Attorney General Martin Amidu from examining him orally in court in connection with the GHS51.2million judgment debt paid to the former which the apex court ruled two years ago must be refunded to the state because it was ill-gotten.

The court gave Mr Amidu the go-Ahead to examine Mr Woyome after he filed an application to that effect.

Mr Amidu’s application followed a decision by Attorney General Marietta Brew Appiah-Oppong to discontinue oral examination of Mr Woyome, a decision which Mr Amidu took exception to.

Meanwhile, Chief Justice Georgina Theodora Wood has turned down a request by a private citizen who petitioned her office to have the court duel telecast live in the interest of the nation.

Mrs Wood, in a letter written on her behalf by Judicial Secretary Justice Alex Poku-Acheampong, said what was being requested “is not the normal practice by the Judiciary”.
