Deputy Attorney General, Alfred Tuah Yeboah, says his office will apply for the daily hearing in the case of defunct Menzgold CEO, Nana Appiah Mensah.
He said this would be done during the case management stage and prayed the court to grant same.
According to him, this is due to the nature of the public interest expressed in the prosecution.
“We are of the humble opinion that this is a matter that we must apply to the courts for an expedited hearing, so, at the case management, we will put up that application and request to the court, subject to the court’s convenience, to have this matter heard on a daily basis.”
The Attorney General, Godfred Yeboah Dame filed new charges against the accused on August 30.
The AG slapped NAM 1 with 39 counts of offences including money laundering abetment, defrauding by false pretence, carrying on deposit-taking without the requisite license, unlawful deposit-taking and money laundering among other charges.
This is a reduction from the initial 61 charges brought against him.
The case was heard on Tuesday, September 19, and the accused was granted a GH¢500 million bail with four sureties.
The accused was also directed to deposit his passport at the court registry as part of the bail conditions.
This was after he pleaded not guilty to all the charges levelled against him by the Attorney-General.
