Prosecution in the case in which Nana Appiah Mensah aka NAM1, the Chief Executive Officer of Gold dealership firm Menzgold has been arraigned, was unable to file processes as per the court orders.

At the last sitting, the court presided over by Her Honour Evelyn Asamoah ordered the prosecution to file the necessary processes prior to today's sitting.

The court, therefore, warned it would be forced to strike out the case should the prosecution fail to do so.

But, in court on Thursday, May 27, the Prosecutor Assistant Superintendent of Police ASP) Sylvester Asare said, prosecution was unable to file the processes on time as directed by the court and "we submit that in all humility this is no deliberate attempt to delay this court."

According to ASP Asare, "the records will show that at the last sitting, we indicated and pleaded with the court as it is in the interest of justice" and that "this morning we are again on bended knees, although standing, we ask that you give us the necessary ear."

He said, Prosecution will ensure that "we file the necessary processes. We pray that in the interest of justice, my Lady grant an adjournment to enable parties put their house in order."

The Circuit Court judge after hearing prosection and the fact that lawyers of the accused person did not oppose, adjourned the case to July 6.


At the last court sitting on March 2, the court warned it would be forced to strike out the case in which Chief Executive officer (CEO) of Menzgold Ghana Limited Nana Appiah Mensah (NAM1) has been arraigned for defrauding.

The court is unhappy about the delay on the part of the prosecution to file the necessary documents to commence the trial.
