Credible information reaching Ghananewslink.com reveals that Alfred Agbesi Woyome, the man in the centre of the GHC51 million judgement debt scandal has been arrested by the police.
His arrest, according to impeccable source was ordered by the President.
The President, H.E John Evans Atta Mills who received the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) report yesterday on the controversial judgement debt paid to Alfred Agbesi Woyome, was saddened about the report which implicated past and current government officials.
The President tasked the Attorney-General to expedite action on the report. This led to Mr Woyome arrest this morning.
The EOCO boss said President Mills twice asked that Woyome should not be paid and twice that directive was violated and the payments made.
But Mr Woyome, the man at the center of the GHC 51 million judgment debt saga yesterday accused the previous government of demonize him.
“Some of the very people who have found their voices and cried loudest in this vindictive vendetta against me have, to all intents and purposes, been engaged in conduct and behaviour which have, by their very nature and failure, exposed the State and people of Ghana to monumental losses in revenues and earnings and which occasioned the awards of these same judgment debts, which they now appear to have no knowledge of, and wash their hands of, like Pontius Pilate,” he lamented in a press  statement.
His lawyers yesterday attempted to question the authority of the EOCO to investigate the matter. They are seeking an injunction to stop the state body from further “questioning” the decision of a court, which led to the payment of the debt.
