Customers of Menzgold Company Limited, the defunct gold dealership firm, are calling on Parliament to probe the company’s closure three years after it went bankrupt.
Customers lamented the government’s lack of commitment to having their money returned to them. They are also dissatisfied with the delay in the prosecution of Menzgold’s CEO, Nana Appiah Mensah, popularly known as NAM1.
In addition, they want Parliament to investigate the whereabout of some 400 kilograms of gold bars during the Economic and Organized Crime Office’s (EOCO) closure of the company.
Spokesperson for the aggrieved customers, Fred Forson, at a press conference in Accra said, “We call on Parliament to investigate the closure of Menzgold including the role played by SEC and EOCO as well as the bank accounts of the CEO and board members of Menzgold and Brew Marketing Companies. The whereabouts of some 4000 kilograms of gold assets should also be investigated”
“Ghana should as a matter of urgency treat the unresolved Menzgold issue as an emergency national catastrophe. We call on the government in the spirit and within the wind of cooperation blowing in parliament to work closely with the august house to find an amicable solution to this conundrum that customers find themselves. Finding a solution will end the extinction of over a million Ghanaians whose lives and very existence have been shut with the shutdown of Menzgold”, Fred Forson added.
