The CEO of Menzgold Nana Appiah Mensah popularly known as NAM 1 has won his court case in Dubai.
The court which pronounced judgment Tuesday morning has also ordered the company, with which he had issues, to pay him all outstanding debts, Starrfm.com.gh has learnt.
NAM 1 has been in Dubai cells since November 2018 over a gold deal gone bad.
A Dubai-based businessman reported Mr Mensah for fraud in May 2018. Unaware that he was on the Dubai police’s wanted list, Mr Mensah went to the Emirates with the hope of receiving a huge amount of money due him as a result of his earlier transactions with the Emirati, only to be arrested when he presented his passport to undergo immigration formalities. Over $23 million is involved in the deal.
Several customers of his defunct gold firm have on several occasions demonstrated in Accra, Takoradi and Tarkwa calling on government to intervene and help them retrieve their locked up cash.
