The African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights in Arusha, Tanzania, will today, June, 28, 2019 deliver judgment in the matter of Mr. Alfred Agbesi Woyome versus the Republic of Ghana.
Mr Woyome applied to the Continental court arguing a violation of his right in relation to the case in which he sued Ghana for abrogating a financial engineering services contract and was paid GH?51.2million.
It follows a ruling by Ghana’s Supreme Court that there was no contract between Woyome and Ghana; and ordered that he should refund the money.
But according to Mr Woyome, by not respecting the terms of the agreement, Ghana violated his rights and therefore he wants the African Court to help protect his human rights.
The African Court sitting in Arusha, Tanzania ordered government to suspend all efforts to retrieve the GH?51.2 million judgement debt paid to Woyome, until the court determines an appeal filed by him.
Meanwhile, the Supreme court on Thursday ordered that several properties identified as belonging to the businessman must be sold to offset some 51 Million Ghana Cedis judgment debt paid illegally to him by the State.
