The Supreme Court has struck out former Attorney General Martin Amidu as a defendant in a suit seeking to challenge the constitutionality of an order for the oral examination of businessman Alfred Woyome.

The ruling followed a preliminary legal objection by Martin Amidu praying the court to dismiss Mr Ametefe’s application in its entirety.

But in the ruling of the court the justices struck out Mr. Amidu as the second defendant in the matter indicating the suit filed by private legal practitioner David Kwadzo Ametefe, did not in anyway show how its determination would affect Mr.Amidu personally hence the decision.

It further awarded a cost of five thousand cedis to Martin Amidu to cover the expenses incurred for being cited.

The seven member panel presided over by Sophia Akufo also dismissed part of the preliminary objection challenging the capacity of David Amtefe to bring suit before the Court.
