Chief Executive Officer of Menzgold, Nana Appiah Mensah will have to reappear in court on the 23rd of October 2019 following an adjournment of his case Tuesday.
Mr. Appiah Mensah was in court with his lawyers regarding his alleged involvement in fraud and abetment.
The deferment is to enable prosecution make amendments to the charge sheet before the case proceeds.
This would be the 3rd time the case is being adjourned after the initial charges were increased from 7 to 13.
The CEO of Menzgold has been charged with two counts of abetment to defraud by false pretence and two counts of abetment to carry out banking business without licence contrary to Section 6 (1) of the Banks and Specialised Deposit-taking Institutions Act, 2016 (Act 930).
Two of his companies — Brew Marketing Consult and Menzgold Ghana Limited — represented by him, have each been charged with defrauding by false pretence, contrary to sections 20 (1) and 13 (1) of the Criminal Offences Act, 1960 (Act 29).
The two companies have also been charged with carrying out a deposit-taking business without licence, contrary to Section 6 (1) of Act 930.
Also facing the law are his sister and his wife, Benedicta Appiah and Rose Tetteh, respectively, who have been slapped with two counts of abetment to defraud by false pretence and two counts of abetment to carry out banking business without licence, contrary to Section 6 (1) of Act 930.
