Nana Appiah Mensah (NAM1), the embattled Chief Executive Officer of troubled gold-trading firm Menzgold Ghana Limited, will arrive in Accra around 11 a.m. today, Thursday, 11 July 2019, according to sources.
The young Ghanaian businessman had been in the custody of Dubai authorities since December last year. He was arrested during his sojourn to the Emirati nation to collect some hefty amount owed his company by a businessman there.
NAM1, who is being sought after by both his thousands of aggrieved clients whose investments have been locked up with the company since August last year; as well as the government of Ghana in connection with fraud charges, won two court cases against his rival businessman while in Dubai.
He is being flown to Ghana by the government via Emirates Airlines, according to sources close to the situation and would be taken to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service the moment he touches down.
An Interpol red alert has been on NAM1’s head for several months since his detention in Dubai.
The Supreme Court of Dubai recently upheld a victory of the businessman in a lower court which ordered his Emirati businessman rival to pay the Ghanaian some $39 million and compensation.
