Fresh allegations against me untrue - Woyome

Embattled businessman Alfred Agbesi Woyome has described the fresh allegations levelled against him by the Deputy Attorney General, Mr Godfred Yeboah Dame, as untrue.

He has, therefore, referred the matter to his legal team for appropriate advice.

On Tuesday, 10 December 2019, the Daily Graphic reported that fresh evidence had been unearthed against Mr Woyome, who has been ordered to pay back some GHS51 million he illegally received from the state.

The Deputy Attorney General said a memo had been forwarded to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service to investigate and prosecute Mr Woyome for colluding with the erstwhile UT Bank to fabricate evidence about the ownership of his assets, which the state attached through a Supreme Court ruling.

“The final Supreme Court ruling was that Mr Woyome had colluded with the UT Bank to practise fraud on the court. I have followed up on that matter and presented a memo to my boss, the Attorney General, who has, subsequently, taken a move by writing to the CID to ensure the prosecution of Mr Woyome for the offence of fabrication of evidence," he said.

But Mr Woyome, in a statement, said: “I have read with much surprise and regret the purported lectures given by Mr Yeboah Dame and unwittingly reported by the Daily Graphic on its front page. The allegations are not TRUE. We have referred the publication to our legal team.”
