The Ghana Police Service has grabbed an Ivorian for allegedly siphoning GH ¢110,610,000 from CAL Bank Ghana Limited.
William Djedehard Anselme Boscaud Dieou, a trader, is alleged to have logged on a CAL Bank Computer and used the credentials of two employees of the bank to debit the said amount from the bank’s internal account and credited same to a customer account.
Police investigations further revealed that an amount of GH¢84,991.06 was withdrawn through the use of ATM, while another amount of GH¢170,000 was transferred to six other bank accounts via GHIPSS Instant Transfer Online.
Appearing before an Accra Circuit Court, Dieou has pleaded not guilty to charges of conspiracy to commit crime and stealing.
His accomplice Wonder Kofi Klutse Fianu, is said to be at large.
The court presided over by Mrs Harriet Jane Akweley Quaye has remanded Dieou into Police custody to assist in investigations.
This follows submissions by Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) George Amega praying the court to remand Dieou into custody to enable him to assist in Police investigations.
The accused person is expected to reappear on August 30.
