In a statement from his law firm, Bentsi-Enchill, Letsa, and Ankomah (BELA) stated the firm was only engaged by Dubai company and instruction he was given by the gold company did not relate or Mention either Nana Appiah Mensah or Menzgold.
“The work instruction did not mention or relate to either Menzgold or Nana Appiah Mensah. Neither the firm nor I have been involved in any incidents that allegedly happened in Dubai several months after we had been first instructed,” the statement reads.
The statement further added that the Dubai incident was completely different from the one he was consulted employed in Accra.
They were completely unrelated and as such their opinion was not sought and none was given from Bentsi-Enchill, Letsa, and Ankomah.
“The client did not seek our opinion on the Dubai incidents and we proffered none. Every document or evidence that we received from the client and which was meant for the police we delivered to the investigator at the Commercial Crime Unit of the police, Chief Inspector Wisdom Semanu,” the statement explains further.
On the allegation of former EOCO boss, Dr. KK Amoah being his uncle, Lawyer Ace Anan Ankomah revealed they are just colleagues lawyers and are from the same home town and nothing else.
“He is a colleague lawyer and I know him very well as we have the same hometown. I also consider him an older friend as he considers me his senior at the Bar,” he said.
