  • Description

    THE ACCRA HIGH COURT HAS ORDERED THE SEIZURE OF PROPERTY OWNED BY FORMER MINISTERS OF THE NKRUMAH REGIME IN GHANA. RECENTLY THE PROPERTIES OF TWO FORMER MINISTERS -- MR. E.K. BENSAH AND MR. A.J. DOWUONA-HAMMOND -- WERE ATTACHED.

    ELEVEN FORMER MINISTERS OF THE NKRUMAH REGIME HAVE BEEN ORDERED TO REFUND MONEY OWING TO THE PRESENT GOVERNMENT.

    A TEAM OF BAILIFFS CALLED AT MR. BENSAH'S HOUSE AT SOUTH LABADI ESTATE, ACCRA, TO MAKE THE SEIZURE.

    THEY TOOK CHAIRS, BOOKSHELVES, CARPETS AND TELEVISION AND RADIO SETS. HIS TWO CARS WERE ALSO IMPOUNDED.

    ARTICLES SEIZED AT MR. DOWUONA-HAMMOND'S HOUSE INCLUDED A TELEVISION SET, REFRIGERATOR, ARTICLES OF FURNITURE, AND A CAR.

    THE SEIZURE WERE MADE UNDER A WRIT OF FI-FA, WHICH PERMITS BAILIFFS TO TAKE AN INVENTORY OF A PERSON'S PROPERTY WITHOUT NECESSARILY EJECTING HIM FROM HIS HOUSE.
