Businessman remanded for issuing false cheque


An Accra Circuit Court on Friday remanded Eddie Bartels, a Businessman, in police custody for issuing a false cheque.


The accused pleaded not guilty and would re-appear on August 29.

Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Ernest Acheampong told the court presided over by Mr Francis Obiri that the complainant in the case is an Administrator, whilst the accused person is a businessman.

He said during the month of May, last year, the accused person approached the complainant at her shop located at Dzorwulu and bought quantities of EU Toilet rolls valued at GH?28,160.00 and made a part payment of GH?8,000.00.

He said, the accuse person then issued a UBA Bank post-dated cheque, with face value of GH?20,160.00 to the complainant to be cashed for the payment of the balance.

However, when the complainant presented the cheque to the bank, it was dishonored on the grounds that the accused person had no funds in his account.

DSP Acheampong said, further investigation revealed that, the accused person has adopted the modus of renting shops for short periods and collecting goods of different sorts from people but would later abandon the shop after succeeding in obtaining those goods from his victims.
