Alex Mould In Trouble As AG Chases Him Over Missing MASLOC Boss
The office of the Attorney General (AG) has filed a motion to substitute serve former Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) Chief Executive Officer Alex Mould.
Mr. Mould is one of two people who implemented the GH5 million bail granted to Sedina Attionu Tamakloe, the former Chief Executive Officer of the Microfinance and Small Loans Centre (MASLOC), who is on trial for allegedly inflicting the state financial loss.
After many failed attempts by bailiffs to serve Mr. Mould with an application seeking to show cause why he should not be forced to pay the bail sum as a result of the accused individual failing to appear for the trial, the AG’s Office applied for substituted service.
The accused has been absent from the trial since October of last year, when the court gave her leave to travel to the United States for a medical checkup.
The matter is being handled by Justice Afia Serwaa Asare-Botwe, who yesterday heard an affidavit of non-service filed by a bailiff, who stated that he went to Mr. Mould’s house three times to serve him but no one came out to help him.
Stella Ohene Appiah, a Principal State Attorney, said they were aware of the problem and have submitted an application for alternative service, which will be served today.
One of the sureties, Gavivina Tamakloe, was present in the courtroom when the case was called, as was his lawyer, Beatrice.
One of the sureties, Gavivina Tamakloe, was present in the courtroom when the matter was called, and his lawyer, Beatrice Annan, informed the court that they had filed an affidavit opposing the AG’s application for forfeiture, which had been deferred until July 5.
Ms. Attionu and Daniel Axim, the former MASLOC Operations Manager, have been charged with stealing and creating a GH93 million financial loss to the state, among other things.
