Joe Amon Kotey, the alleged National Security Operative who duped several people of millions of Ghana cedis under the pretext of supplying them with cars from the Confiscated Assets Committee, on Tuesday promised to refund the monies back to the owners by March 29, 2011.
He told the Circuit Court hearing the case that he is prepared to pay back to the complaints all the monies he collected from them by the agreed date.
Even though some of the complainants at the Court welcomed the accused’s statement, they promised to use every means to recover all their monies.
“All that we are interested in is to get ours monies back” the complainants charged.
Amon Kotey has been charged for defrauding about 30 people by false pretences.
He pleaded not guilty to the charges and was granted bail in the sum of GH¢32,000 with two sureties to be justified. The case has been adjourned to March 29, 2011.
The facts as told by Police Inspector Michael Dubiok, the Prosecutor are that one of the complainants is a businessman and a friend to the accused.
He said sometime in September 2010, the complainant approached the accused with the intention to buy a vehicle and the accused promised to assist in acquiring one.
The prosecution said on September 13, the accused delegated one Sedor who is known to the complainant to select a vehicle of the complainant’s choice at the Jubilee Warehouse at Tema.
Inspector Dubiok said the following day the complainant paid GH¢10,000 cash and was promised of delivery within 21 days but the vehicle was never delivered.
He said all efforts made by the complainant for the accused to refund his money proved futile and therefore he reported the case to the police.
