Aggrieved Customers of Menzgold want Government to include them in its bailout package for depositors whose funds have been locked-up in some collapsed financial institutions in the country.
The customers say it is only appropriate if they are made beneficiaries of the bailout package since Menzgold falls under the jurisdiction of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
The Securities and Exchange Commission recently disclosed that government is set to announce a bailout package for clients of the 53 defunct Fund Management Companies (FMCs) whose licenses were revoked.
However, the package will be given in phases with the first phase covering clients of the twenty-two (22) companies currently under official liquidation and does not include customers of Menzgold.
In an interview with GBC’s Radio Ghana, a leader of the Coalition of Aggrieved Customers of Menzgold, Edmund Sekyere, said they will throw their support behind any political party that promises to ensure that they are paid their money.
