Judgement debt: I will tell it all – Woyome
The embattled businessman, Mr Alfred Agbesi Woyome who is facing trial at an Accra Fast Track High Court for allegedly receiving an illegal GH¢51.2 million judgement debt payment from the state, has pledged to tell it all.
It followed a ruling by the Financial Division of the Fast Track High Court on Wednesday that ordered him to open his defence in the case on Monday May 5, 2014.
He had filed a submission of ‘no case’ in the ongoing GHc51.2 million judgment debt trial and prayed the court to throw the case out but the court disagreed with him.
In an interview with journalists after the court sitting Wednesday, Mr Woyome said the court hearing would be an opportunity for him to be able to tell the public what happened from the beginning to the end.

“..If, as my lawyers planned, that there should be an end to the matter because they have not been able to establish anything. Did my lawyers plan that? I agree with them.”
“But I think that this opportunity which has come today, will give me a court room opportunity to be able to tell the good people of this country, about what happened from the beginning,” he said.
“What and what and what to the end, then the Ghanaian people will understand and take a cue from me that no matter the situation, whether government or anything the constitution of this country must be protected and each individual must stand firm and make sure that the right thing is done.”
He said officialdom was not “something you should think like that, officialdom is embedded in the constitution and your own right, including my right.”
“So I think I thank God for today, and I thank God who has led me throughout this two and half years of something that has been prolonged deliberately or whatever it is, I don’t know, till now”
“I will ensure that my legal team help us to quicken the story to the Ghanaian people because Ghanaians need to understand what happened and the politics behind it,” Mr Woyome said. Facts
State prosecutors say Mr. Woyome, in February 2010, made a false representation that the government owed him two per cent of €1,106,470,587 for his services of financial engineering for the rehabilitation of the Kumasi, Accra and El-Wak stadia ahead of the 2008 African Cup of Nations.
He has denied the allegations.
