Attorney General to push for daily hearing in fraud case against NAM1 

The Deputy Attorney General, Alfred Tuah Yeboah, has revealed that his office intends to request daily hearings for the case involving Nana Appiah Mensah, also known as NAM 1, the former CEO of the now-defunct Menzgold Ghana Limited.

NAM 1 is currently facing 39 counts of fraud and money laundering charges, and the legal proceedings have been ongoing for several years.

Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, September 19, Tuah Yeboah explained that the proposal for daily hearings aims to expedite the case and provide closure for the victims affected by NAM 1’s alleged fraudulent activities.

“We are of the humble opinion that this is a matter that we must apply to the courts for an expedited hearing, so at the case management we will put up that application and request to the court, subject to the court’s convenience to have this matter heard on daily basis.”

In the latest development, Nana Appiah Mensah has been granted bail in the amount of GH¢500 million, with four sureties required, and none of them needing to provide justification. Additionally, he has been instructed to deposit his passport at the court registry as part of the bail conditions.

This decision comes after Nana Appiah Mensah pleaded not guilty to 39 counts of fraud and money laundering charges. He is currently on trial alongside Menzgold Ghana Limited and Brew Marketing Consult.

During the court proceedings, his lawyer, Kwame Akuffo, requested that the court maintain the bail condition of GH¢5 million without the need for justification, which had been previously set at the circuit court before the state entered a nolle prosequi.
