National Democratic Congress financier, Alfred Agbesi Woyome - the man at the center of the controversial GH¢58 million debacle - seems to have vindicated the whole New Patriotic Party's (NPPs') stand that they would not allow their members to honour invitation by the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) to help in unraveling the mysteries surrounding the payment of the money.


The former Austria Consul is in court over EOCO's handling of investigations, thereby truncating the order by President Mills for EOCO to investigate the circumstances surrounding why the controversial 58 million Ghana cedis was paid to him by the State.

His lawyers on Tuesday afternoon filed two writs - first, questioning the mandate of the Economic and Organised Crimes Office to investigate the matter.

Their case was that EOCO cannot investigate the judgment of a court.

They are consequently seeking an injunction to stop EOCO from continuing with the investigations.

The lawyers are also challenging EOCO's action to freeze Mr. Woyome's bank accounts.

However, information reaching this paper as at press time Tuesday revealed that EOCO had not been served with the summons.

It will be recalled that since the issue of the judgment debt came to light, Mr. Woyome was the first to invite EOCO.
