Two of his companies — Brew Marketing Consult and Menzgold Ghana Limited — represented by him, have each been charged with defrauding by false pretence, contrary to sections 20 (1) and 13 (1) of the Criminal Offences Act, 1960 (Act 29). The two companies have also been charged with carrying out a deposit-taking business without licence, contrary to Section 6 (1) of Act 930.

NAM1’s wife and sister, Rose Tetteh, and Benedicta Appiah, respectively, have also been slapped with two counts of abetment to defraud by false pretence and two counts of abetment to carry out banking business without licence, contrary to Section 6 (1) of Act 930. The two women, however, are nowhere to be found at the time the charges were imposed on them. A bail appeal by NAM1’s lawyers led by Kwame Akuffo, was rejected.
