The African Court on Human and People’s Rights has ordered Ghana to suspend all efforts to retrieve the fifty one point two million judgement debt paid to businessman, Alfred Agbesi Woyome, until the court determines an appeal filed by the businessman, who is arguing that his human rights are being abused by the Supreme Court in Ghana.

The eleven member panel in a unanimous decision on the 24th of this month ordered Ghana to suspend the seizure of any property belonging to the businessman, and take all appropriate measures to maintain the status quo and avoid the property being sold until the case is determined.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court is expected to give it's ruling this morning on the application filed by the business man, Mr. Woyome, seeking the apex court to stay proceedings until the African Court determine the application before it.
