Businessman, Alfred Agbesi Woyome

Amidu's application follows the Attorney General’s Department which filed a notice at the Supreme Court to discontinue the case it filed about a week ago.

A notice of discontinuance indicated that: "please take notice that the 1st Defendant Judgment Creditor [Attorney General] herein has this day [26th Day of October 2016] discontinued the present application to orally examine the 3rd Defendant Judgment Debtor [Alfred Agesi Woyome] with liberty to reapply."

In a statement released November 4, 2016, Amidu said, "I have this morning 4th November 2016 filed an application at the Supreme Court for leave to examine the Judgment Debtor as the citizen public interest Plaintiff  in favour of whom the case was decided for the Republic of Ghana."

The anti-corruption campaigner [Amidu] said, "I have also stated the information available to me and my belief that: ‘the NDC and the Government realizing the power of this Court pursuant to its order granted for the examination of the 3rd Defendant/Respondent/Judgment Debtor to “order the judgment debtor or officer to produce any books or documents in the possession of the judgment debtor relevant to these questions at the time and place appointed for the examination” took to panic resulting in the President instructing the Attorney General upon her own advice to him to discontinue the application for examination of the judgment debtor which the Court had already ordered.’ The full application can be found on my website at martinamidu.com."

But presiding judge Justice Anim Yeboah, after hearing arguments from Deputy Attorney General Dominic Ayine to throw out Martin Amidu’s application set Tuesday November 15, to give his ruling.
