Woyome’s judgment debt was paid under Amidu – Witness

The Chief Director of the Ministry of Justice & Attorney General, Ahmed Suleman, admitted in court on Monday that a huge chunk of the GH¢51m paid as judgment to businessman Alfred Woyome was under former Attorney General, Martin Amidu.

Mr. Woyome is being tried by the state on two counts of defrauding by false pretense and causing financial loss to the state.

During cross-examination at the Financial Division of the Fast Track High Court, the eighth prosecution’s witness, Ahmed Suleman confirmed that three installments of the alleged judgment were paid under Martin Amidu.


He said one installment amounting to GH¢17m was paid under another former Attorney General, Betty Mould Iddrisu.

The Fast Track High Court has adjourned the case to October 16.
