The Coalition of Aggrieved Customers of Menzgold has served notice that they will picket at the Jubilee House should the government fail to pay them their locked up funds by September 12, 2022.
The Coalition says they careless about the consequences since they have been treated unfairly and taken for granted for far too long.
The aggrieved customers have also expressed disappointment over comments by the Economic and Organized Crime Office (EOCO) that it lacked the evidence to prosecute Nana Appiah Mensah, aka NAM 1, Chief Executive Officer of defunct gold dealership company, Menzgold.
According to the Coalition, Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah’s comment is not only unfortunate but also insulting to the many customers who have had their investments locked up.
Mr. Timothy Bino, the Chairman of the group is therefore asking the government to release all frozen assets of NAM 1 if they lack the evidence to prosecute him or pay the customers.
He asked, “If you didn’t have evidence to prosecute NAM 1, what evidence did you have before shutting down the company?” The government has been unjust to Menzgold customers. We deserve an apology,” he told Nyanlonton Mu Nsem on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm.
Mr. Timothy Binob stated that there are renowned lawyers in the government who are capable of dealing with this issue, so the EOCO boss’s comment is invalid.
He claims the company’s closure was a deliberate attempt to sabotage the payment process.
He stated that several of their members, numbering over 100, had died, while others had to withdraw their children from school due to inability to pay their fees.
He also revealed that one of the Coalition members died of kidney disease because she couldn’t afford treatment.
