JUST IN: NAM1’s pilot grilled over private jet


It has emerged that the pilot of Nana Appiah Mensah, aka NAM1, the embattled owner of Menzgold Ghana Limited, has been questioned by the Economic and Organised Crime Organisation (EOCO).

The suspect, who is an Australian, was picked up on Sunday, April 7 and is currently on self-enquiry bail.

Sources say the pilot, whose name was given as David Brown, purportedly tried to sell NAM1’s private jet? Gulfstream IV Jet Aircraft (2001 model) ? after he allegedly realised that the owner might not be released from jail in Dubai anytime soon.

EOCO is not giving information on the case, but DAILY GUIDE understands that the pilot, who reported to the anti-graft body with his lawyer, has since been granted bail.

According to sources, the members of the crew on the plane have all left to their various countries, but reports say the suspect was the one keeping the jet and made several attempts to sell it.

NAM1 Freedom

NAM1 was reportedly set free by a court in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE), after he won a case of fraud brought against him by Horizon Royal Diamonds in a purported $51 million gold deal.

NAM1 was made to post a bail bond of $3.5 million, and he is said to be pursuing the company that caused his arrest over the $31 million.

According to reports, he was arrested in Dubai where he travelled to retrieve his money from the company.

It’s still unclear whether the Interpol Arrest request by the Ghanaian authorities, as confirmed by the CID boss last week, is still in place.
