Customers of Collapsed Fund Management Companies have cautioned the Ghana Police not to cross paths with them in their bid to retrieve locked up funds from government.
This comes after the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced that customers of Blackshield and three other companies will not have access to government’s bail out because their owners had challenged the revocation of their licenses in court.
On this note customers of these firms went on a protest at the finance ministry to demand their inclusion in the bail out packages which eventually led to a clash with the police with some members arrested.
Reacting to the incident on Kasapa News, spokesperson for the Coalition, Charles Nyame stated, “we’ll continue to use our civil rights to demand what is ours. The Police will say we didn’t serve them notice but it was not a planned activity it was a spontaneous thing. People wanted to go to the Finance Ministry themselves to find out why they are not part of those penciled to be paid.
“We are going to make sure that in our subsequent event as such we will serve the police notice and we beg them, if we serve them they shouldn’t be an impediment because we the customers are in desperate times. If the Police should impede our efforts we may be forced to cause something similar to the Arab spring, but we don’t want to get there. We’ll continue to agitate within our civil right to get our monies,” he said.
