Monalisa Abigail Semeha, popularly known in the entertainment industry as “Mona Gucci”, accused of Visa fraud, has been granted GH¢200,000.00 bail with one surety by the Accra Circuit Court.
She purportedly took GH¢103,400.00 from a trader under the pretext of securing her United State of America visas for her clients but failed.
Charged with defrauding by false pretense, Mona Gucci, who is also a travel consultant, pleaded not guilty when she appeared before the court presided over by Mr Isaac Addo.
Mona Gucci is expected to re-appear before court on December 11.
Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP), Seth Frimpong, prosecuting, told the court that the complainant, Ms Comfort Obiri, was a trader and resided at Ofankor, while Mona Gucci resided at Odorkor, Accra.
The prosecution said in February 2019, the complainant was introduced to accused by a woman known as Esther as a person (accused) who could secure United State of America visa for her (complainant).
