Woyome for court – report


Alfred Woyome

A Daily Graphic report says this morning February 6, 2012 that there are indications that Alfred Agbesi Woyome and a Chief State Attorney Samuel Nerquaye-Tetteh who were arrested last week over the long running GH¢ 51 million judgement payment saga will be put before court today.

The report suggests that the police will seek to remand the two persons in custody to enabe the police continue investigations until charges are pressed against the them.

It also suggests that the probability of the State going to court is to forestall the possibility of Woyome’s lawyers going to court to seek bail under the 48-hour custody rule.

Woyome, the businessman who is embroiled in a GH¢51 million judgement debt payment saga in connection with the 2008 African Cup of Nations, was arrested February 3, 2012 and is being held in detention at the Police Headquarters in Accra.

Mr. Nerquaye-Tetteh however, was arrested following the release of a report after investigations into the matter by the Economic and Organised Crimes Office (EOCO) which showed that Woyome has paid an amount of GH¢400,000 into his wife, Mrs. Gifty Nerquaye-Tetteh’s account.

Mr. Nerquaye-Tetteh is reported to have advised the former Attorney-General in the matter before court, when Woyome sued the state seeking the judgement debt.
