- Family of Nana Appiah Mensah, are set to overturn, a circuit court arrest warrant issued to Interpol
- The family is heading to court to reverse the Interpol arrest warrant issued last year, by an unnamed Ghanaian circuit court judge for the continuous holding of NAM1 in Dubai
The family of the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of troubled gold dealership firm, Menzgold, Nana Appiah Mensah, are set to overturn, a circuit court arrest warrant issued to Interpol leading to the continuous holding of their son, affectionately called NAM1, in the custody of the Dubai Police.
Information from multiple sources indicates that, the family is heading to court to reverse the Interpol arrest warrant issued by an unnamed Ghanaian circuit court judge, which is keeping the embattled CEO, who was released weeks ago, by an Emirati court.
The arrest warrant is dated January 10, 2019 and numbered 01/2019. The effort to free Mr Appiah Mensah, is for him to follow up on the US$39 Million debt owed him by a Dubai-based Diamond Royale Company. The Dubai court, had ordered the company to pay him for gold bought from him.

Already, some workers of Menzgold, have appealed to the Akufo-Addo government, to exercise restraint in its attempt to have NAM1, extradited to Ghana by the Interpol office in Dubai, where he is currently pursuing a debt of US$39 million owed him by Diamond Royale Company.
According to the workers, who have constituted themselves into a group called, Loyal Menzgold Staff, it would be prudent for the government of Akufo-Addo to stop frustrating the young businessman’s quest to bring back to Ghana from Dubai, some $39 million he intends to use to pay his clients, whose funds have been locked up with the company since August 2018.
Meanwhile, the Attorney General, Gloria Akuffo, has argued that the embattled CEO, cannot be brought to Ghana just yet.
According to her, although Nana Appiah Mensah, has been cleared in a case that was brought against him in the Emirati capital, Dubai, he cannot be brought to Ghana, as has been demanded.
“When he was acquitted, we were advised that there is a period that is open to the complainant to lodge an appeal and until that has run out, we cannot go and get him out of the place".
“So we are having to wait out that period,” she said in an interview with Joy FM Drive Time host Lexis Bill on ‘Personality Profile’.
