Business mogul Nana Appiah Mensah has been advised by the Attorney-General’s Office to officially write in seeking assistance to claim a judgment sum of $39 Million awarded in Dubai.
OccupyGH.com has also learnt that lawyer for some of the affected customers, Amanda Clinton has asked the CEO of troubled gold firm Menzgold, NAM1 as famously known by to show evidence of having been awarded that sum of money after being vindicated in a court battle in Dubai.
NAM1 on Monday fore-fronted a press conference to address the general public, Menzgold customer and interested parties at large.
During the press conference NAM1 pleaded with the Attorney-General and Minister of Justice to help him retrieve $39 million being the value of gold he supplied to Horizon Royal Diamond, a Dubai-based company.
Reacting to his claims in an interview with the Daily Graphic, a Deputy Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, Mr Joseph D. Kpemka, said: “We have not received official communication to that effect from Mr Mensah.”
He said a press conference was not the medium of communication for such request.
Mr Kpemka said: “The appropriate way for him is to write to the Attorney-General detailing the kind of assistance he needs. He should indicate the nature of assistance he needs as a citizen of this country,” and stressed that all citizens had a right to be heard.
Mr Kpemka declined to answer whether the government was in a position to assist or not on grounds that “we are yet to receive and examine the kind of assistance he needs.”
