Accra, April 11, GNA – The Supreme Court on Thursday granted Mr Martin Amidu, a former Minister of Justice and Attorney General his application to add two new reliefs to his earlier statement of case.
The decision by the Supreme Court follows a motion filed by Mr Amidu seeking the leave of the court to add two new reliefs to his statement of case.
The two reliefs being sought for by Mr Amidu are that the court should make a declaration that the second defendant (Waterville) in making their claims against the Government for the payment of the contract knew that the agreement has not been put before parliament and is inconsistent with the law.
The court should also make a declaration that Woyome jointly with Austro Invest Management in making their claim against the Government and receiving the payments knew that the two agreements had not been put before parliament and is inconsistent with the law.
The court after granting the application ordered Mr Amidu to file the two reliefs within three days and serve it on the other parties.
The defendants who did not object to Mr Amidu’s application were also given three days within which they are to file their responses.
The facts are that Mr Martin Amidu, filed a suit at the Supreme Court praying the court to make a declaration that the agreement entered into between the Government, Waterville Holdings and others was an international contract which needed a parliamentary approval and that current agreement was inconsistent with the laws of Ghana.
The case has been adjourned to April 26.
