NAM 1 fights bench warrant; insists he is innocent

Embattled Menzgold CEO Nana Appiah Mensah (NAM1) has directed his legal team to appeal a bench warrant for his arrest.

Nana Appiah Mensah, Gabriel Kwamigah and Eric Amponsah Bediako have been accused of conspiracy to defraud by false pretence.

Following the accusation, the Adentan Circuit Court subsequently summoned the embattled businessman and his accomplices to come and answer to the said charges.

However, all attempts to get them to appear before court proved futile, and thus the warrant.

But maintaining his innocence in a statement, NAM 1 indicated that his lawyers will “appeal the ruling on the point of the said law (Act 30) to bring finality to the matter”.

According to him, he did not purchase, acquire nor transact any business of any sort in connection with the purchase and acquisition of some three vehicles, of which one has been paid for.

He further explained that his role in the transaction was that of an arbiter; adding that he only came in “as a third party to help resolve some issues concerning the two other vehicles upon the request of the two parties (buyers and sellers)”.

“The process through which the verdict was arrived at is fraught with serious legal infractions, as it did not conform with Section 60 and 61 of the Criminal Procedure Code of 1960 (Act 30), which is clear on the process of arrest, charge, accusations,” he added.

Meanwhile, NAM 1 is expected to appear before an Accra Circuit Court on November 22, 2021.

He has been accused of defrauding thousands of people with his Menzgold investment scheme but he is yet to be charged.

The state is also yet to file processes for the trial to commence.
