According to Mr. Ankomah in a statement, his law firm, Bentsi-Enchill, Letsa and Ankomah (BELA), was only engaged by a Dubai-based attorney on behalf of a UAE company.
“The work instruction did not mention or relate to either Menzgold or Nana Appiah Mensah. Neither the firm nor I have been involved in any incidents that allegegdly happened in Dubai several months after we had been first instructed,” the statement reads.
The statement explains that BELA was instructed to continue the process when the Dubai incidents came up for the Accra matter and that of Dubai were separate and unrelated.
“The client did not seek our opinion on the Dubai incidents and we proffered none. Every document or evidence that we received from the client and which was meant for the police we delivered to the investigator at the Commercial Crime Unit of the police, Chief Inspector Wisdom Semanu,” the statement explains further.
Ace Anan Ankomah further denied allegations that the former EOCO boss, Dr KK Amoah is his uncle. “He is a colleague lawyer and I know him very well as we have the same hometown. I also consider him an older friend as he considers me his senior at the Bar,” he said.
