The Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) on Tuesday, urged those in possession of the properties of Menzgold Ghana Limited to surrender them to it in order to avoid prosecution and sanctions.

These include employees, friends and relatives of the CEO, who is facing misdemeanour charges in Dubai, United Arab Emirates; while his gold dealership company is holding the investments of thousands of customers back home.

The directive follows EOCO’s acquisition of a High Court Order confirming the freezing of landed properties and vehicles of the company.

A statement issued by the EOCO, and copied to the Ghana News Agency, in Accra, mentioned the seized properties as Zylofon Arts Complex, Brew Marketing Consult, Star Madrid Football Club, Zylofon Music and Media Company Limited, Brew Energy Company Limited and G-Tech Automobile Service.

The rest are two properties located at Trassaco Valley on Plot number 315 and plot number 337, plot of land (Number 54) near Oak Street- Trassaco Valley, an uncompleted residence and 510 acres of land.

The statement, signed by Jacqueline Avotri, Head of Public Affairs of EOCO, explained that failure to release the properties would constitute contempt of court, which it said, would attract the appropriate sanctions.

EOCO, therefore, appealed to the public to assist the office by providing information to facilitate the retrieval of all the vehicles and properties not listed in the freezing order.

It directed the public to contact the EOCO through the following means: 0244381441, 0302634363, 0302665559 as well as eoco@eoco.org.gh.
