The Volta Caucus in Parliament has condemned “the Rambo style arrest” of embattled National Democratic Congress (NDC) financier Alfred Woyome.

Woyome has been charged with conspiracy to commit crime, defrauding by false pretense and corrupting public officials over the GhC58 million judgment debt scandal.

The Caucus on Wednesday visited Mr. Woyome, who is in remand at the Police CID cells in Accra.

Arguing that the businessman like every Ghanaian is entitled to his human dignity under the law, a statement from the Caucus noted that it is not against the ongoing investigation of Mr. Woyome by the police.

“However, in doing so, his human dignity must be protected as stipulated under Article 15 of the 1992 Constitution,” the statement signed by Hon. Captain (rtd) George Nfojoh, the chairman and Hon. Edem Asimah, the secretary, pointed out.

The statement added: “The Volta Caucus would like to put on record the fact that Mr. Alfred Agbesi Woyome is a Member of the Expanded Volta Regional Executive Committee of the National Democratic Congress.

“In the mean time, we appeal to the rank and file of the party (NDC) to remain calm pending the outcome of his bail application,” the stated concluded.
