A Deputy Attorney General, Joseph Dindiok Kpemka, has defended the CEO of defunct Menzgold, Nana Appiah Mensah, popularly known as NAM1, saying, claims about the Menzgold boss duping a business man in Dubai were all false as his acquittal has proven.
Kpemka said he met with Nana Appiah Mensah for the first time when he visited him in a “one-on-one” meeting, they had a frank conversation on all that had transpired on his arrest in Dubai, over claims that he [NAM1] duped a businessman to the tune of $61m.
Speaking in an interview on Accra-based, Zylofon FM, Kpemka explained that the narrative in the media about NAM1 duping a businessman was false.
He explained that NAM 1 was arrested because he acted as a middleman in a gold deal involving the victim and that he did not participate in the supposed fraudulent business.
"I had never met him in my life, but after he requested to have a meeting one on one and he narrated his story and when I heard the story I came to the conclusion that he has not committed any offence. Information that went to the court and what I know is hasn’t been that NAM 1 took the money per se. All those running commentary along those lines are false.
The information was that the complainants were alleging that someone duped them through the introduction of NAM1 … when I listened to the story NAM1 gave, it was clear that he did not participate in anyway to the circumstances leading to what happened,” Kpemka noted.
