Accra, April 12, GNA - A banker accused of misappropriating GH¢66,759 belonging to his employers has appeared before an Accra Circuit Court charged with stealing.
Charles Asemani 32, denied the offence and he is on GH¢70,000 cedi bail.
Asemani is expected to reappear before the court presided over by Mrs Jane Harriet Akweley Quaye on May 3.
Prosecuting, Chief Inspector B. Benneh, told the court that the complainant, Doreen Sai of a micro finance company.
Chief Benneh said Asemani is a Credit Manager with the company.
He said on September 24, last year, the complainant detected that Asemani had disbursed loans to some 14 customers whose duration for re-payment of the loans had expired.
Prosecution said when the customers were contacted, they confirmed that they had completed payments but the complainant realised that Asemani had not paid those monies into the company’s account.
Prosecution said the monies accrued to the sum of GH¢66,759.51 with an expected interest of GH¢35, 392.95 as at January this year.
He said subsequently, Asemani was arrested on September 24 last year, where he admitted the offence in his cautioned statement in the presence of an independent witness.
Prosecution said Asemani has since refunded GH¢4,000.
