The Supreme Court has ordered business man Alfred Woyome to refund a total of Ȼ51.2 million judgement debt payment he received between 2009 and 2010.

Judges at the highest court ruled the National Democratic Congress financier had no valid contract to be paid that amount of money.

The ruling follows a review of the court’s own earlier decision sought by former Attorney General Martin Amidu who insisted that Woyome, like Waterville and Isofoton, had no valid contract to be paid any amount by the state in judgement debt.

The Supreme Court few months ago ruled in favour of Amidu and directed Isofoton and Waterville to pay back monies paid them in judgement debt.

It said the contracts which formed the basis for the claims by the two companies did not exist in law for want of Parliamentary ratification as required by law.

It however refused to make a ruling on the Woyome matter because the matter was pending at the High Court.

Not satisfied with the ruling of the court, the citizen vigilante, as he would describe himself, went back to the Court asking it to review its own decision on Woyome and the Attorney General whom he joined to the suit against Waterville and Isofoton.

More soon.
