Nana Appiah Mensah’s Ghc 1bn Bail Requirement Is Unjust, And An Unjust Law Is No Law At All – CHRIS-VINCENT Writes

2 min


Earlier today, news broke out about Menzgold CEO Nana Appiah Mensah being granted bail in his current trial.

NAM 1, who attended his second court date today, was granted bail in the sum of Ghc 1bn, with five sureties, three of which have to be justified.

For a man whose assets have been frozen by the state, that’s a big ask.

Writing on the issue, GhanaCelebrities.Com‘s Founding Editor, Chris-Vincent Agyapong Febiri, argues that the bail requirement is unjust considering the situation the state has put NAM 1 in.

According to him, any law that is unjust is no law at all and asking Nana Appiah Mensah for a billion cedis is definitely unjust.

Unjust law is no law at tall—by that stretch, unjust interpretation of the law, is one that robs the law of its true purpose.

Nana Appiah Mensah has been granted bail, dependant on the condition that he is able to produce a security of 1 billion cedis—I mean 185 million dollars.

In layman terms, what this means is that, Nana Appiah Mensah must lodge 185 million dollars or property worth of that with the court, to serve as a guarantee to appear in court. He is expected to present 5 sureties, three of whom must be justified, and he is also expected to report himself to the police every Wednesday.

How fair is this when an expensive property at East Legon, at best will sell for 1 million dollars in Ghana? He needs about 185 houses of such price—and the owners should be ready to surrender the documents of these properties as sureties; else he will still be kept behind bars for failure to meet the bail condition.

In many quarters, this is an illusionary bail but NAM1 does not give up and I hope he is able to provide the needed securities.

And this is a man whose assets have all been confiscated by the state. How is his bail condition fair?

What were the bail conditions for Woyome and that pastor who allegedly collapsed a bank and chopped down 610 million Ghana cedis?
