The Attorney General and Minister for Justice, Marietta Brew Appiah-Oppong, is innocent and not involved in any wrongdoing concerning the GHC51.2million judgement debt paid to Alfred Woyome, Deputy Attorney General Dominic Ayine has defended.
“We are not afraid of anything. My boss and I are very clean,” he told Emefa Apawu on Class FM’s 505 news programme on Thursday, November 17.
The Supreme Court granted permission to former Attorney General, Mr Martin Amidu, to cross examine Mr Alfred Woyome in court over the judgment debt paid to him in 2010.
The court further requested both parties involved in the case to reappear in court on 24th November.
Mr Amidu’s action followed a move by the Attorney General to discontinue oral examination of Mr Woyome.
Critics have alleged that the Attorney General may have benefited from Mr Woyome, the reason for discontinuing the case.
But Dr Ayine insisted that the Attorney General “just wants due process to be followed.”
He stressed: “[Martin] Amidu and Ace Ankomah and the others, they all know that Marietta and I will never take a bribe.”
According to him, the critics of the Attorney General “know we inherited whatever problem we have and we were not soiled with anything close to Woyome”.
Dr Ayine rather accused Mr Amidu of being used by the political opponents of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to pursue an “evil” agenda.
