An accountant accused of writing a bad check has been granted bail by the Circuit Court of Accra in the amount of $100,000.
Three plausible sureties must be provided by Kwabena Asante Baafi.
He has refuted the wrongdoing.
Susanna Eduful, the judge, issued an order for the prosecution to file witness testimonies and make its disclosure.
Prior to the next adjourned date of October 30, 2023, it must be delivered to the defendant.
Mr. Osei Amponsah Brobbey, the complainant, is a public employee who resides in the Accra suburb of East Airport Residential Area-Spintex, according to Police Chief Inspector Christine Bansah, who testified before the court.
According to her, Baafi works as an accountant and lives in Accra’s Abokobi Oak Villa Estate.
On March 14, 2022, Baafi paid 500 per day to hire a Toyota Land Cruiser Prado with the license plate GW3625-16 in Accra so he could carry out business-related responsibilities.
The prosecution alleges that Baafi guaranteed payment for the use of the automobile would be made by the end of March 2022 to Emmanuel Nkwa, the employee in charge of the car rental business.
Based on the guarantee, the worker phoned the automobile rental company’s owner, Lieutenant Commander Kofi Amponsah Duodu, who approved the offer.
She said that Baafi broke his end of the contract and asked for additional time to pay the rental fee while he continued to use the car.
In September 2022, Lieutenant Commander Duodu gave Brobbey, the plaintiff in this case and his cousin, the order to follow Nkwa to Baafi to retrieve the car and collect his money.
The accused phoned the owner of the leased automobile after meeting and speaking with Baafi in his house and gave him a check for 60,000 out of the 88,500,00 that had accrued from the rental of the car to the complaint.
According to her, Baafi requested that Brobbey pay the check on September 21, 2022.
On September 23, 2022, Brobbey delivered the check to the Republic Bank’s Ridge location so that the money could be put to his savings account there.
On September 26, 2022, the bank told Brobbey that the check could not be cleared because Baafi did not have money in the account.
According to her, Baafi was made aware of the situation and requested that Brobbey submit the check on September 30, 2022, and January 30, 2023.
The check could not, however, be cleared on any of the times.
After the Police received a complaint of the incident, Baafi was charged.
