Reject Woyome’s vexatious application-Amidu tells Supreme Court

Former Attorney General Martin Amidu is appealing to the Supreme Court to throw out the writ filed by beleaguered businessman Alfred Woyome seeking to reverse his application to cross examine him.

Mr Amidu whose application was granted to cross examine Woyome over his GHC51 million judgment debt was stopped when the latter filed a motion asking the court to review its ruling.

“In the premises I believe that the application for stay of proceedings is frivolous, vexatious and an abuse of the process of the Court and ought to be refused. I oppose the application for stay of proceedings on the main ground that it discloses no reasonable ground or grounds for the making of an application for stay of proceedings to this Court pending the discharge or reversal of the ruling and order of this Court dated 16th November 2016 aforesaid to warrant its consideration by this Court.

“Furthermore, the mere allegation that the 3rd Defendant/Applicant is dissatisfied with and aggrieved by the said ruling or that there had been misdirection or a series of them is not a fair, just, or special circumstance warranting an application for the grant of stay of proceeding in this action” Mr Amidu said in an affidavit response to the writ.

The case has been adjourned to December 1, 2016.
