Lawyers of embattled businessman, Alfred Agbesi Woyome have initiated legal action to stop the sale of his house at Kokomlemle in Accra.
The move is to use proceeds from the sale to defray a GH¢51.2million debt Mr. Woyome owes the state.
A letter from the AG’s Department signed by Mrs. Dorothy Afriyie Ansah, a Chief State Attorney, directed the Lands Commission to move in to value one of the residential properties of Mr. Woyome located at Kokomlemle in Accra on Thursday.
The letter which was copied to Mr. Woyome requested that he grants access to the officers on Thursday, June 2, 2016, at 10 am.
But lawyers of Mr. Woyome in a statement expressed shock at the conduct of the Attorney General when in fact the case is still pending in court.
“It is surprising that as the Principal Legal Advisor to the government, you elect to ignore the rule the rule of law; the very foundation upon which the 1992 Constitution of the Republic of Ghana creates your good office and rather place premium on booty trap,” the statement said.
