Counsel of customers for Menzgold Ghana Limited says she treats the news about the Chief Executive Officer of the embattled gold dealership firm, Nana Appiah Mensah, popularly known as NAM 1, as “fake news”.
NAM1 is widely reported to have won his court case in Dubai.
Lawyer Amanda Clinton explaining her reasons said every two weeks, there is news about NAM1 in Ghana and that does not make the latest news on the winning of the case authentic.
According to his spokesperson, NAM1 was acquitted and discharged on Tuesday morning.
The court has also reportedly ordered the Dubai-based company, which called for his arrest and later prosecution, to pay him all outstanding debts.
Reacting to the news on Onua FM’s Yen Sempa hosted by Bright Kwasi Asempa on Wednesday, Ms Clinton said: “I am skeptical. I don’t think it has been confirmed by the CID and Interpol because I have been speaking to the police PRO”.
”We must tread cautiously because people lie. This is not the first time that we are hearing issue like this in the media. Every two weeks, there is information about him but no police officer in Dubai has confirmed the arrest,” she explained.
Lawyer Clinton continued: “I classify it as fake news unless I get the confirmation from the Interpol and CID because they have the right to bring him back. I would rather want the information come to me from the CID or Interpol because he wouldn’t be a free man. Interpol will bring him back”.
She said “we are going through the legal process”.
Government delegation to Dubai
On the government delegation to Dubai to ascertain the purported arrest of NAM1, Lawyer Clinton explained that “the delegation came back and nothing was reported. They said he is there and until that trial is over, we don’t have jurisdiction”.
