Martin Amidu, former attorney general has responded to businessman, Alfred Woyome’s ‘frivolous’’ application of stay of proceedings of his [Amidu’s] oral examination.
The Supreme Court on Thursday adjourned to December 1, 2016 the application for stay of proceeding filed by Mr. Woyome.
The apex court had granted the request by the anti-corruption campaigner to orally examine Woyome, but he filed to stay the process.
The court however adjourned the case because the respondent, Amidu and Attorney General; were served late.
The sole judge, Justice Anin Yeboah yesterday ordered the parties in the case to file their response as early possible and Mr. Amidu has filed his.
In his response, he said, that Woyome’s application is “intended to subvert the order of this court dated 16th November 2016.” “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.’’
