Source: GNA - Two persons including a pastor, who allegedly fraudulently sold a parcel of land at Adenta Commandos to a lady at the cost of $10,500 in Accra have appeared before an Accra Circuit Court.
The two: Cyril Aklasi, a businessman and Michael Tsatsu, a Pastor, have both pleaded not guilty to the charge of conspiracy to commit crime and fraudulent transaction of land.

The court admitted them to bail in the sum of GH?42,000.00 with two sureties, one to be a public servant earning not less than GH?1,500.00.

They are expected to reappear before the court presided over by Mr W. K. Essandoh on November 4.

Prosecuting Chief Inspector Francis Tarsan, told the court that the complainant, Betty Mensah is a Ghanaian based in the United States of America.

Prosecution said in 2007, Ms Mensah arrived in Ghana and decided to acquire a parcel of land to build a house.

The prosecutor said Tsatsu promised to get her a land and led her to Aklasi, who showed the victim a parcel of land situated at Adenta Commandos as belonging to him.

Complainant became convinced and paid $10,500 through Tsatsu per money transfer payment to be given to Aklasi.

When the complainant went to develop the land, she was prevented from doing so as the same land had been sold to another person by the accused persons.

Complainant reported the matter to the Police who apprehended the accused persons.

Prosecution contended that, investigations have shown that accused persons have no title to the land they sold to the complainant.
