Coalition of Former Menzgold Customers on Tuesday, June 22, called on Speaker of Parliament, Rt. Hon. Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin to ask him to help them retrieve their locked up funds with the now defunct company.
The leader of the ten man delegation which called on the Speaker Isaac Nyarko expressed worry about the impact of closure of Menzgold on customers and their families, adding that the banking sector cleanup didn’t help matters.
The CACM is a group of customers whose investments running into several millions of cedis had locked up with defunct Menzgold Company Limited.
The group described their plight as an emergency national security issue and appealed to the government to pay their investments from the consolidated fund.
Mr Odartey further called on NAM1 to pay them immediately since he had received the $39 million owed him by Horizon Royal in Dubai.
The aggrieved customers are also demanding the whereabouts of 400kg of gold state officials said was in the custody of EOCO as well as the location of NAM1’s private jet and many other assets seized by EOCO and the police.
They also want NAM1 and his Corporate Affairs Manager, Mr Nana Yaw Offei, and his Public Relations Officer, Nii Armah Amarteyfio, arrested in addition to confiscation of all NAM1’s assets and that of Menzgold, including landed and movable properties.
Nana Appiah Mensah, the Chief Executive Officer of Menzgold is standing trial for alleged criminal charges including operating a business without licence from the Securities Exchange Commission.
