Accra, Feb. 21, GNA - The Fast Track High Court, will on Thursday, March 8, decide whether to grant a motion seeking to freeze the accounts of Alfred Agbesi Woyome, the businessman saddled in the GHȼ 51.2 million judgment debt.
This was after the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) had filed a motion to review the court’s order to freeze additional accounts and other financial assets of Woyome.
The court on January 19, gave an order for Woyome’s accounts with Agriculture Development Bank to be frozen.
At the court presided over by Mr Justice Bright Mensah, EOCO’s Attorney, Ms Diana Adu Anane, said further investigations undertaken by the office had led to the discovery of other accounts with other banks and additional financial assets of Woyome.
Based on the revelation, Ms Anane said her outfit had filed for a review or variation of the court’s order so that the bank accounts and other financial assets of Woyome could be frozen.
Meanwhile, lawyers of Woyome have vehemently opposed to the motion because the procedure under which EOCO filed the motion could be applicable in civil matters and not criminal matters and prayed the court to dismiss the motion.
