Woyome arrested 2/5/2012
Information reaching the New Statesman is that Alfred Agbesi Woyome, the man at the centre of the GH¢51 million fraudulent payments, has been arrested.
The decision to arrest Mr Woyome was taken at a meeting held at the Castle involving President John Atta-Mills, Dr Benjamin Kumbour, Attorney General and Minister of Justice, and the Interior Minister.
The final decision to effect the arrest of Mr Woyome was taken around midday.
What the meeting could not reach a conclusion on was whether it should extend to the former Attorney-General, Betty Mould Iddrisu, who authorised the payments of the money to Mr Woyome. Information, however, available to the New Statesman is that she will be picked up for questioning and quickly bailed afterwards.
Intriguingly, Mr Woyome was fully aware of the details of the meeting and was aware he was about to be arrested.
Mr Woyome was asked to tender his resignation as the Chairman of the National Board for Small Scale Industries before his arrest. Though the letter has not been prepared before the arrest, the resignation was deliberately leaked to the media.
Woyome, meanwhile, according to sources close to him, has threatened to disclose names of major beneficiaries of his controversial multi-million judgement debt if he is left to hang.
Next on the list of persons to be arrested are the Chief State Attorney, Mr Samuel Nerquaye-Tetteh, and Mr Paul Asimenu, Director, Legal, at the Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning.
Mr Paul Asimenu, according to the interim EOCO report, was the person who wrote the opinion which eventually led to the decision that Mr Woyome was entitled to his claim.
Mr Samuel Nerquaye-Tetteh, on the other hand, admits to drafting all letters which Mrs Mould-Iddrisu sent to Dr Kwabena Dufuor concerning the transactions leading to the payments to Mr Woyome. He was involved in the negotiations which led to the first settlement for an amount of over GH¢41 million and indeed witnessed it and therefore when the Ministry of Finance refused to pay and Mr Woyome went to court, he found it unconscionable to go to court and defend the action.
An amount of GH¢400,000 was also paid to the wife of Mr Nerquaye-Tetteh on June 16, 2011 by Mr Woyome.
In a related development, the New Statesman has come across a statement from “the head of Communication team NDC” giving out clear instructions as to what should be done to “save the President” from his alleged complicity in the Woyome Affair,

The Statement reads:

"Reading through the EOCO Report, I''ve come to the conclusion that we must begin to find ways to save the President now.
My suggestion is that the BNI must be made to arrest:
1. Alfred Woyome, Chairman of National Board for Small Scale Industries,
2. Mr. Paul Asomany, Director Legal - Min of Finance and
3. Mr. Nerquaye Tetteh, Chief State Attorney, Min of Justice

The BNI should also arrest MR OSARFO MARFO to make it look like the problem was created by the two of them.

The biggest defense we have for aunty Betty Mould-Iddrisu is that she was misled by this Nerquaye whose wife Gifty Nerquaye got GHc400,000 (c4bn) from Woyome''s Unibank account. Let’s help Aunty Betty too. Let’s argue she was misled.”

This is the position of the Party and the Castle.
