Mensah spent about six months in Dubai for a fraud case. He won a case against Horizon in the $39 million gold trial.
His company has dismissed reports that he is facing fresh charges in Dubai.
In a statement, Menzgold urged the media to be circumspect about reports regarding the company in order to avoid court suit.
The statement also said the CEO does not owe anyone such amount.
“The attention of the Management of Menzgold Gh Ltd has been drawn to a News Publication by ABCnewsgh.com with the headline ‘MENZGOLD NAM 1 FACES FRESH SUIT IN DUBAI’ that purports to inform the General Public of the opening of a fresh law suit against our CEO, Nana Appiah Mensah after his successful Supreme Court ( Appeal) ruling in Dubai on the 4th July 2019, where he was acquitted and discharged of all charges brought against him by the appellant,” reads part of the company’s statement.
“The publication by ABC News claimed that Nana Appiah Mensah is to commence what seems to be a process of litigation in an attempt to repay an amount owed to certain individual in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
” According to the story, a Pakistani national has sued him over a One Million Dollar ($1m) debt of which our CEO had signed an agreement with this unnamed Pakistani national to settle his indebtedness to him by installment, but the civil court is yet to approve the alleged agreement.”.
