Court drops three justifications on NAM1’s GHC1bn bail

An Accra Circuit Court presided over by Judge Jane Harriet Akweley Quaye has removed the three justifications on the five sureties it set when it granted bail to the Chief Executive Officer of Menzgold Ghana Limited, Nana Appiah Mensah, (NAM1).

The court on July, 26,2019 set the bail to 1 Billion Ghana Cedis with five (5) sureties, three of which must be justified.

Lawyers for NAM 1 led by Kwame Akuffo today the 6th of August 2019 moved an application for variation of the bail conditions set by the Court at its last sitting.

Police Prosecutors led by ASP Sylvester Asare did not oppose the application. They however disagreed with the proposal by the defence team that the bail bond should be reduced to 20 million Ghana cedis.

Judge Jane Harriet Akweley Quaye’s Court in her ruling said the bail amount of 1 billion Cedis will remain same. However, the three justifications for the five sureties are removed.

Effectively, all that would be required now is for five (5) persons to present themselves to sign for NAM1 to have his liberties restored.
