The High Court in Accra has ordered Alex Mould, the former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) and Gavivina Tamakloe to pay GH¢5 million to the state after failing to produce Sedinam Ationu Tamakloe.
But has been absent for the past 16 months.
Correspondence from his lawyers to the court suggests that the accused who was granted request for medical evaluation on her spinal cord is requesting again for at least nine more months to undergo eye surgery.
But the court observed her to be “somebody who has opted to stay for medical tourism.”
Justice Asare-Botwe, now a Justice of the Court of Appeal said “an entire 16 months delay is more than enough time given and I do not think that anybody who is fair will complain about 16 months delay.”
To this, the court said, “the bail bond executed by the two sureties be forfeited to the Republic.”
