Betty Mould Iddrissu
Nana Ato Dadzie, lawyer for former Attorney General, Betty Mould Iddrissu, has dismissed calls for her prosecution for her role in the payment of fifty-one million cedis to businessman Alfred Woyome.
The Supreme Court, on Tuesday, unanimously ordered Alfred Agbesi Woyome to refund Ghc51.2 million paid to him by the state as judgment debt.
Some groups and individuals, including pressure group, Alliance for Accountable Government (AFAG), have called for the prosecution of the former attorney general and her deputy at the time, Ebo Barton Oduro.
They believe the two should face punishment for their roles in the payment of the money to Mr. Woyome.
Mr. Dadzie told Citi News the Supreme Court ruling ordering Mr. Woyome to refund the money says it was wrongfully paid him; does not implicate his client in any way.
He believes that for any charge to be brought against his client, a proper investigation must be conducted ‘and not because some people jump into the air and say arrest her.’
According to Mr. Dadzie, ‘two years ago, after a huge clamour for her arrest we explained our position’ on the matter ‘after being questioned by the police.’
