The Ghana Police Service Public Relations officer, ACP David Eklu has stated that the Saturday 2nd February date for Nana Appiah Mensah’s court appearance in Dubai as revealed in the joint Police/EOCO press statement could be a typing error.
Speaking to Starr FM, ACP David Eklu explained that, the date could be an error since it happens to fall on Saturday. However, he explained that it could also be a special court set for the weekend
ACP David Eklu affirmed that Nana Appiah Mensah aka NAM1 will definitely be in court in February and added he does not see any big deal with the date being correct or not.
“We understand February 2 is a weekend….I am not too sure about the situation in Dubai. In certain cases, the court may hold a sitting on weekend. But that does not negate the fact that he will be going to court in February,” ACP Eklu told our sister media Starr.
“In typing on the calendar, you can even get the date wrong. You might think that Friday is February 2. So to me, it is not a significant thing. It can be a typo error, it can be an error, and it can be true that the court has the arrangement to sit on Saturday,” he added.
After the government powered delegation to Dubai to extradite the embattled millionaire, Nana Appiah Mensah to face charges in Ghana came back empty-handed, they release a statement to explain why NAM1 was not brought back.
According to the statement, NAM1 was to face Dubai court on 2nd February. The result of the proceedings will determine if NAM1 will be released to Ghanaian authorities or not.
”It is the understanding of the Ghanaian delegation that Mr. Mensah faces misdemeanor charges in the UAE and will be made available to Ghana upon the final determination of his current case in the UAE. His case is next due for court on February 2, 2019”. the statement read.
However, it turned out 2nd February is Saturday and many Ghanaians have accused the government of making up the lies to protect Nana Appiah Mensah, CEO of Menzgold.
