MenzGold Brouhaha: How Ghana’s Delegation To Dubai Was Snubbed

Fresh information picked from the Herald Newspaper throws more light on why the owner of Menzgold, Nana Appiah Mensah was not handed over to the Ghanaian delegation who went to get him from Dubai.

According to the Newspaper the owner of Horizon Royal Diamonds, whom NAM1 scammed and goes by the name Daniel is a very powerful man with connections to the ruling family of Dubai, hence his disrespect to the Ghanaian delegation , who went all the way there, to bring back NAM1.

From what we gathered the Ghanaian delegation, could not meet Daniel in Dubai because the latter had traveled out of the country, and did not want to meet the delegation, thus, declaring his intention to make Nana Appaih “rot in Dubai cells”.

In a haste to give a different story, the delegation announced that NAM 1, will return to court in Dubai on February 2, 2019, which is a Saturday, whiles the courts in Dubai don’t work on Saturdays.

This in one way or the other suggests that the government, through the Police and Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) is not telling the truth on what transpired in Dubai

Again, there are claims that Interpol is yet to capture NAM1 in its database as fugitive. This is because, the real reason why NAM 1 is in Dubai is known to many officials in the government, especially the Flagstaff House, traditional rulers, top lawyers, the senior police officers, EOCO and others.

Three senior officials at EOCO, were mentioned as holding vital information. They include the Executive Director, KK Amoah, one Bashiru and another by name Walter.

Lawyer Fred Frimpong, captured as the Board Chairman of Menzgold, was also mentioned, as having access to the puzzle, aside Adentunji Adewoye Olorunfemi alias Ade, as Charles Opoku-Darko alias “Chairman”.

An Angolan by name Rodrigues Jose Gomes Maria alias Zerka, is also mentioned to have taken part in the deal. He is identified as worker of Horizon Royal Diamonds DMCC and got a share of the booty which is keeping NAM in the Dubai cell. He has since fled from his employers.

Daniel, is said to be a Palestinian based in Dubai, and had worked his way to the heart of the House of Maktoum, running businesses for the family. Based on this, he is able to have his way around many things including overwhelming access to the Dubai police.

The Herald is further told that while in Ghana, the delegation led by the Minister of State at National Security, Bryan Acheampong, was told that Nana Appiah, was not going to be released to them, however, the delegation decided to gamble mainly to prove to the customers of the Menzgold that the Akufo-Addo government was doing something about the matter.

Ahead of the trip to Dubai, Daniel, had snubbed Ghana’s ambassador to the United Arab Emirate (UAE), Alhaji Ahmed Ramadan, by refusing to speak with him on the release of NAM1, who is needed to curl the wave of the protests sweeping across the country, due to the Menzgold saga.

Insiders also told this paper that, Daniel, is technically holding NAM1 to ransom, hoping to get gold from him before he would let him leave Dubai.

This is because, Daniel, believes NAM 1, has gold in Ghana and keeping him in Dubai, will eventually force him to fly the gold to Horizon Royal Diamonds DMCC and gain his freedom.

The delegation that returned home last Friday, got the Ghana Police Service and EOCO saying that the embattled Menzgold CEO, will only be available in Ghana, upon final determination of his case in Dubai brought against him by Horizon Royal Diamonds DMCC.

NAM1 is facing charges of misdemeanour in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), a statement jointly signed by the police and EOCO has said.

According to the statement, NAM 1, would be made available to authorities in Ghana, pending the outcome of the case in Dubai.

The statement went on to indicate that the embattled CEO, has cooperated with authorities that went to visit him in Dubai and has given them an extensive statement to assist in their investigations into the Menzgold saga for the requisite action to be taken.

The statement was jointly signed by Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) David Eklu, the Director-General of the Public Affairs Directorate of the Ghana Police Service and Mr Abu Issah, acting Head of the Legal and Prosecution outfit of EOCO, and copied to the Ghana News Agency.

“Mr Mensah was cooperating with EOCO as part of its investigations into a possible breach of Banks and Specialised Deposit-Taking Institution Act, 2016, (Act 930) as reported to it by the Bank of Ghana (BoG).

“Upon the breakdown of cooperation, EOCO employed other strategies, including the use of associates and collaborating with other security agencies to make him available for further investigations”.

It said, the Emirati authorities employed similar methods in getting Mr Appiah Mensah to visit the UAE where, he was, subsequently, apprehended.

According to the statement, the delegation from Ghana went to Dubai to determine the nature of the legal processes against the accused person in the UAE and work on extradition processes to get him back to Ghana.

He is due to return to court in Dubai on February 2, 2019. Interestingly, this day is a Saturday, and the courts in Dubai don’t work on Saturday.

Menzgold Prepares ‘Comprehensive Final Payment Plan’ To Settle Customers

Menzgold Ghana Limited has given the clearest indication yet that it is meeting all stakeholders in order to agree on a payment plan to have all customers settled once and for all.

The Acting Communications Director of the gold-trading firm told TV3’s Ebenezer Agyekum in an interview on Wednesday that the schedule being drafted is expected to have all customers settled.

Nii Armah Amarteifio indicated, however, that only principals will be paid, just as was agreed at a meeting with customers in 2018.

“We can’t pay extra values,” he pointed out.

Events after the shutdown of Menzgold Ghana Limited in September, 2018 have led to the court issuing a bench warrant for the arrest of all directors of the company, in the name of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

Customers have staged separate demonstrations across the country, demanding payment of their deposits.

Mr Amarteifio revealed that the behind-the-scenes engagement with stakeholders involves the board of the company.

“Immediately we are done, then we will come out with the final payment schedule that will now spell out when we are going to pay our customers,” he noted.

He lamented the company’s inability to follow payment plans issued last year, blaming the situation on the challenges it went through.

Menzgold duly apologized to its customers, he observed.

“That is why this time around we are taking our time [and] being extremely circumspect to come out with the final payment schedule.

“That is why we are engaging the stakeholders. That is why we are engaging the board to sit down to really come out with a comprehensive final payment plan.”

He noted that the company will not come out with any notice until the stakeholders are fully done with the engagement.

“This is something that we have promised to come out with [and] then we will follow it through so that we pay everybody till the end and then this problem will be solved.”
