Senior Ghanaian government officials are expected to leave Ghana in the few hours time to the United Arab Emirates, to speak to issues surrounding the arrest of Menzgold CEO, Nana Appiah Mensah.
The team is constituted by officials of the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI), the Police and others from allied security bodies.
This follows an emergency National Security meeting earlier today.
They are expected among other things, to trigger a possible diplomatic agreement for the embattled CEO of the gold trading hub to be released to Ghanaian officials, as he is a subject of an existing circuit court warrant.
Today’s decision to send officials to the U.A.E also comes after it was established that Mr. Mensah had been detained in the Arab country since December 7, over a gold trading deal gone bad.
