The Supreme Court has dismissed an application filed by businessman Alfred Agbesi Woyome over claims of human right abuse.
The there member review panel presided over by Justice William Atuguba said the application has been unanimously dismissed.
The dismissal of the application paves the way for the Attorney General to continue the stalled oral examination of the businessman over the GH₵ 51.2 million judgement debt wrongly paid to him by the state.
Lawyers of Mr. Woyome had filed the application at the apex court claiming his fundamental human rights had been breached following his oral examination.
Mr. Woyome had also argued that his oral examination was a breach of the rules of court.
It may be recalled that the businessman recently filed another motion at the court seeking to stop all processes towards recouping the controversial cash into State coffers.
Mr. Woyome had initiated a process at the African Human Rights Court in Arusha, Tanzania, claiming several violations on his human rights in respect of the cases brought against him.
The businessman had wanted the apex court to stop all processes in the trial pending the determination of the case before the African Human Rights Court.
Mr. Woyome’s lawyers had filed yet another motion challenging the legality of the valuation of his assets by the State.
They had argued that the state erred in initiating the valuation processes of the properties belonging to the businessman and National Democratic Congress (NDC) financier.
