Finally, the Asokore Mampong District Court which is presided over by Her Worship, Portia Molly Sally, has ordered the famous Dr. Kwame Fordjour, also known as Dr. UN, to visit a mental institution to check his mental wellbeing.
Dr. UN is known for his massive scam which ended in a number of celebrities being mocked. The likes of Sarkodie, D Black, and Berla Mundi among others, were all ridiculed.
Recently, Dr. UN was arrested while he was having an interview with Hello FM for his actions. According to the judge who is handling the scammer’s trial, the mental fortitude of an accused person must be checked in order for a fair trial to take place.
Dr. UN has been granted a bail amount of GHC 15,000 so he can check his mental wellness.
Inspector Samuel Mensa, presenting the fact of the case to court, shared that the complainants are renowned people of society, directors of some institutions, and a district chief executive.
He continued that Dr. UN is a self-styled coordinator of Global Public Service, a non-legally existing Non-Vovernmantal Organization known to be the United Nations (UN).
According to the prosecutor, Inspector Mensah, during the month of July and August 2018, the accused, who intended to defraud, went to the complainants with letters and memorandum to the effect that they won awards from the office of the UN.
“My Lord convinced about this false representation, the complainants went ahead and paid different sums of money to the accused through his MTN mobile money account and bank numbers,” Inspector Mensa said.
“Under Section 133 (1) of Act 30, I am not certain that the first accused is of sound mind to stand trial or to plea to the charges without a scientific examination. It is, therefore, prudent to hold on to the trial and order that the first accused should be medically examined,“ the presiding judge concluded.
However, one may conclude that the court ordering Dr. UN to check himself for mental problems before any trial could have come too late considering how long it even took to arrest him.
