An Accra Circuit court has reviewed bail conditions earlier given to the embattled CEO of Menzgold Ghana Limited, Nana Appiah Mensah, also known as NAM1.

About a week ago, the court imposed a GH¢ 1 billion bail condition with 5 sureties, three of whom must be justified on NAM1.

Making a case for the review of the bail condition, lawyers of NAM1 argued that the bail conditions were unfair and needed to be reviewed.

The prosecution in the case did not oppose the plea for the variation of the bail condition, they however disagreed with the fact that NAM1’s lawyers were giving their own figure.

The judge however maintained the GH¢1 billion bail condition but varied the surety conditions.

Judge Harriet Naa Akweley Quaye ruled that NAM1 is supposed to provide five sureties but none to be justified suggesting that he must only show properties worth GH¢ 1 billion and report to the police every Wednesday after meeting the bail conditions.

The case has been adjourned to September 3, 2019.
