According to the Court, the High Court was right in freeing the businessman last year because the state has failed to prove his guilt beyond reasonable doubt.

Meanwhile, the State had filed a notice of appeal a day after his acquittal on the grounds that the trial judge erred in law in freeing him, and prayed the Court to set aside that judgement acquitting Woyome.

But, Woyome lawyers were of the view that the businessman’s acquittal was in order.
