NAM1 still being tried in Dubai despite bail; Ghana can't have him now – CID

The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service has revealed that they are unable to have the CEO of the defunct Menzgold Company Limited, Nana Appiah Mensah, also known as NAM1, extradited to Ghana even though he is on bail.

According to the CID Director-General DCOP Maame Tiwaa Addo Danquah, the extradition cannot be done until the completion of his trial in the United Arab Emirates.

Speaking at a press conference to address all the crime-related issues under investigation on April 2, 2019, DCOP Addo-Danquah said, NAM 1 had been granted bail in Dubai.

“On the 4th of March, NAM1 was granted bail and there were some conditions for his bail. On 25th of March, he was able to execute the bail and his lawyers obtained the letter for his release. Due to the red alert notice on him, he was rearrested on the instructions of Interpol.

He is currently in custody at a Dubai Police station and that case, even though he is on bail, hasn’t ended; they will continue to produce him before the court until that case is over before he is handed over to Ghana. We are in touch with the Dubai Police and everything is on course,” DCOP Addo-Danquah noted.
