The Chief Executive Officer of UT Bank, Mr. Kofi Amoabeng, who was sued over some allegations of property fraud by one, Nana Otua Swayne, has finally been vindicated of all the charges brought against him in court.
The Human Rights Division of the High Court by an order of certiorari, quashed proceedings filed by Naa Otuo Swayne at the Circuit Court in Accra against Mr. Amoabeng and one other as unlawful, illegal and an infringement of their fundamental human rights.
The Court presided over by Justice Kofi Essel Mensah also in judgement, prohibited the Circuit Court from hearing the said criminal case.
The decision of the Court followed an application filed by Mr. Amoabeng praying the court to declare that his trial before the Accra Circuit Court is an infringement of his human rights and requested the court to restrain the Respondents from hearing and determining the suit by Nana Otua Swayne.
This was upheld, as in his ruling, Justice Kofi Essel Mensah stated that from the Affidavit filed, the Applicant’s complaint was a violation of his rights to fair trial, personal liberties, and his dignity.
He said, from the totality of the evidence before him, he finds that the complaint lodged by 1st respondent (Nana Otua) against Mr Amoabeng and his alleged abettor cannot be criminal in law to warrant his prosecution on a charge of fraud, because there is no finding of fraudulent intent on his part.
The Judge also stated that the charges brought against Mr Amoabeng and his abettor are baseless and unjustified in law and described it as a charge brought in bad faith.
