Embattled business man and CEO of defunct Gold dealership firm Menzgold, Nana Appaih Mensah, popularly known as Nam1 has seen his case adjourned to September 2 due to health concerns.
Nam1 was due to appear today before the Circuit Court in Accra presided over by Her Honour Mrs Evelyn Asamoah but has failed to do so for the first time since the case was opened.
Bis lawyer Audry Twum explaining to the court why his client is no where to be found in court revealed, the business mogul is coughing severely and they have asked him to seek medical attention.
Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Slyvester Asare who happens to be the Prosecutor in the case said the accused has always been in court and for the sake of his absence, he prayed for the case to be adjourned.
NAMI fell into deep trouble when he was initially charged with abetment of crime, defrauding by false pretences, carrying on a deposit-taking business without a licence, sale of minerals without a licence, unlawful deposit-taking, and money laundering.
According to reports by EIB Network’s Court Correspondent Murtala Inusah, the case has been adjourned to September 2, 2021, after the parties had approached the bench upon the prosecutor’s request.
