The Supreme Court (SC) on Wednesday put on pause a new written document at the General Jurisdiction (High Court Division) in which Woyome is fighting that his key human rights was being penetrated. 

It noticed that Woyome couldn't start a new activity at the preliminary court (High Court) when the issue was before a SC which is an "execution court." 

"The application is thus struck out as pulled back. Suit number HR/0047/2020, Agbesi Woyome sections the Registrar, General Jurisdiction, the Auctioneer, Citi Max Accra, be stayed totally." 

It coordinated Mr. Osafo Buabeng, counsel who spoke to Woyome in Court to make steps to have the move remained. 

The five part board managed by Chief Justice Anin Yeboah's activity came after it had struck out the Attorney General application for leave for securing of Woyome's properties. 


The Attorney General went under the High Court Civil Procedure Code (CI 47) to secure Woyome's properties, yet the SC said that it was superfluous to go under that standard. 


As indicated by the Court, the state could prepare assets and purchase Woyome's properties before giving them over to any state organization. 

Mr. Godred Yeboah Dame, a Deputy Attorney General, subsequently pulled back the application for leave for securing and the SC struck it out as pulled back. 


The movement for leave of the court by the Attorney General depended on the way that barkers couldn't sell the properties due to the dread that they could be come back to him on the off chance that there is an adjustment in government. 


The AG is accordingly imploring the court to have Woyome's property moved to the National Security. 


Woyome owes the state about GHC47.2 million and the offer of his properties was to settle his obligation. 


On July 29, 2014, the court requested Woyome to discount GHC51.2 million on premise that he got the cash through invalid agreements between the state and Waterville Holdings Limited in the year 2016. 


Anyway the offer of Woyome's properties has not been emerged. 


This is on the grounds that potential purchasers are apparently reluctant to buy the properties since they feel the properties might be reestablished to Woyome later on. 

Mr. Albert Kan-Dapaah, National Security Minister, made this known in a letter dated March 4, this year and routed to the Minister of Justice and Attorney General. 


The letter made reference to the Supreme Court's organization to have the properties of Mr. Woyome sold to settle judgment obligation. 


The benefits being referred to included two manors at Trassaco Estate, a house at Kpehe where he dwells, an office complex of Anator Holdings, private structure at Abelemkpe and a stone quarry in the Eastern Region including its plants and hardware
