A banker has been granted GH¢70,000 bail by an Accra Circuit Court for accused of misappropriating GH¢66,759 belonging to his employers.
Charles Asemani 32, charged with stealing, denied the offence.
Asemani is expected to reappear before court, presided by Mrs Jane Harriet Akweley Quaye, on May 3.
Chief Inspector B. Benneh told the court that the complainant, is Doreen Sai of a micro-finance company, and Asemani a Credit Manager of the company.
The court heard that on September 24, last year, the complainant detected that Asemani had disbursed loans to some 14 customers and the duration for re-payment of the loans had expired.
Chief Insp Benneh said when the customers were contacted, they confirmed that they had completed payment, 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.
Chief Insp Benneh said Asemani was arrested on September 24, last year, and he admitted the offence in his cautioned statement in the presence of an independent witness.
Prosecution said Asemani has refunded GH¢4,000 of the amount. – GNA
