The Supreme Court has unanimously ordered businessman, Alfred Agbesi Woyome to refund GhȻ51.2million to the state.
Graphic Court Correspondent, Mabel Aku Baneseh reports that the court said Mr Woyome got the money out of an invalid and unconstitutional contract.
According to the court, the contracts upon which he made and received the claim was in contravention of Article 181 (5) of the 1992 Constitution of Ghana, which requires such contracts to be laid before and approved by Parliament.

Other members of the panel were Julius Ansah, Sophia Adinyira, Rose Owusu, Jones Dotse and Anin Yeboah.
The others were Paul Baffoe Bonnie, N. S. Gbadegbe, Vida Akoto Bamfo, A. A. Bennin and J.B. Akamba.
A detailed report of proceedings in court on Tuesday would be published in Wednesday’s edition of the Daily Graphic, July 30, 2014.
