The Chief Executive Officer of Menzgold, Nana Appiah Mensah otherwise known as NAM 1, says he is still waiting for advice from the Attorney-General’s Department towards the beginning of his trial.
NAM 1 was initially charged with abetment of crime, defrauding by false pretences, carrying on a deposit-taking business without license, sale of minerals without license, unlawful deposit taking, and money laundering.
He has reportedly taken various sums of money, summing up to GHC1.6 billion from customers.
He had pleaded not guilty to all initial 13 charges levelled against him by the State.
Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Sylvester Asare, told an Accra Circuit Court, presided over by Ellen Asamoah that the advice would enable them to proceed on the matter.
“When the advice is ready, we will issue a hearing notice to the accused person to appear,” he said.
The Court adjourned the case to Monday, September 07, at the request of the Prosecution.
The State filed new charges against NAM 1 when the case was last called on Tuesday, June 23.
It, therefore, asked the Court not to take his plea as there would be further instructions.
NAM 1’s lawyers have, however, pleaded with the Court to push through the process for their client.
NAM 1, with some of his family members are currently facing 63 counts for money laundering, stealing and taking deposits without authority.
The Circuit Court on July 26, last year granted him bail in the sum of one billion cedis with five sureties and three to be justified.
