Summary short_text

A US-based Ghanaian lawyer, Stephen Kwaku Asare, has called for the Attorney General and the two foreign law firms - Omnia Strategy and Volterra Fietta - to be held responsible for Ghana's failure to challenge the $170 million judgment debt awarded against the country.

His comments come after the Commercial Court in London rejected a late appeal from Ghana against a judgement debt award of US$134 million in favour of power contractor, The Ghana Power Generation Company.

The law firm, which tagged itself as the only dedicated public international law firm in the world, explained that the new Attorney General, Godfred Yeboah Dame, had only been sworn in on March 5, and the firm received the directive to represent Ghana 10 days later.
