Two salesmen of Kasapreko Public Limited Company (PLC), Eric Abban and Sampson Boateng Ofori had been hauled before the Accra Circuit Court for allegedly  stealing a total amount of GH¢52,020 from their employer.

Eric and Sampson allegedly stole GH¢31,010 and GH¢21,000 respectively. They were supposed to have attended court on February 22, 2024 to answer the charges but were absent.

Mrs Afia Owusua Appiah, the presiding judge, was told by the prosecuting officer, Chief Inspector Wisdom Alorwu that the suspects were not aware of the court date and prayed for adjournment. The suit was adjourned to March 14.

The facts of the case were that Kasapreko PLC is the complainant. In the month of June 2023 the company conducted an internal audit of the various accounts being run by the Van Sales Managers.

After the auditing, it was realised that Eric and Sampson who were Van Sales Managers in charge of Tata Van  and Dongfeng truck have embezzled cash in the sums of GH¢31,010.00 and GH¢21,000.00 respectively.

The suspects were, subsequently, arrested on the 9th and 10th of May 2023 respectively.

In their respective investigation caution statements obtained in the presence of an independent witness, accused persons admitted knowledge of the embezzled money on their respective accounts and could not provide any justified evidence as to the whereabouts of the monies.

After investigations, they were charged with the offences and put before the court.
