According to ASP Asare, more time was needed because they made new discoveries that would help in the prosecution of NAM1.
The magistrate however granted his request and adjourned the case to November 23, 2019.
NAM1 is standing trial together with his wife, Benedicta Appiah, and sister, Rose Tetteh, for defrauding customers to the tune of about GH¢1.68 billion.
Two companies of NAM1 – Brew Marketing Consult and Menzgold Ghana Limited – had each been charged with defrauding by false pretence, contrary to sections 20 (1) and 13 (1) of the Criminal Offences Act, 1960 (Act 29).
The two companies have also been charged with carrying out a deposit-taking business without licence, contrary to Section 6 (1) of Act 930.
