EOCO Boss: No laws exist to charge NAM 1

EOCO Boss: No laws exist to charge NAM 1
Listen to this article

The Executive Director of the Economic and Organized Crimes Office (EOCO), Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo- Danquah, has indicated that it is getting increasingly difficult to obtain evidence to prosecute Nana Appiah Mensah, commonly known as NAM 1, the CEO of Menzgold.

At a session hosted by the Asante Professional Club, she discussed the EOCO’s investigations and said that while the organization occasionally knows when someone has committed a crime, it is challenging to bring charges since proving they breached the law is challenging.

“Which law and Act did he break?” she said, using the Menzgold case as an example and went further to say as a result, prosecuting NAM 1’s case has become problematic because there is no statute to describe his case.

Nothing is a crime until it is declared such by a court of law, according to the EOCO chairman, who also claimed that it is getting harder to find the necessary legal provisions that characterize Menzgold’s offence.

Since the court proceedings began in 2019, NAM 1, who is facing 14 counts including money laundering, theft, accepting deposits without authorization, deceiving by false pretences, abetment of crime, sale of minerals without a license, and carrying on a deposit without a license, has had over 16 adjournments.
