Court

Seth Alowin Attoh, a businessman accused of defrauding three persons of GHC22, 500 under the pretext of securing them Bulgarian visas but failed has appeared before an Accra Circuit Court.

Attoh charged with three counts of defrauding by false pretences, pleaded not guilty.

The court presided over by Mrs. Afia Owusuaa Appiah admitted Attoh to bail in the sum of GHC 25,000 with two sureties to reappear on July 14.

The case of prosecution was that Attoh operates a firm at Hansonic, near Dansoman, Accra.

Prosecution said in March 2018, Attoh informed the complainants Nii Agyei Laryea, David Cudjoe Boakye, a driver and Gloria Osei a trader that his company had been contracted to organize trips around the world.

Based on that, prosecution said the complainants expressed interest hence, Laryea on March 2018, paid GHC9, 500 to Attoh.

The Prosecution said later Boakye and Gloria also paid GHC8,000 and GH5, 000 respectively to Attoh to procure them the Bulgarian visas.

The prosecution said Attoh after collecting the money was unable to secure the visas, so the complainants reported the matter to the Police and Attoh was arrested.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
