A former worker of Chirano Gold Mine Limited (CGML) has been fined GH¢ 3,600 for defrauding 13 people off an amount of GH¢ 18,000.
Inspector Amponsah said in November, 2013, Kwabena informed the complainant to organise some men in Tarkwa so that he could assist them to get employment at CGML.
Based on the information, Mr Asante convinced the 13 people and Kwabena demanded GH¢1,500 from each person before giving them the jobs.
He said although the complainant gave the money to the convict at Tarkwa, he failed to fulfil the promise and went into hiding.
The complainant, therefore, reported the matter to the police, and Kwabena was arrested on March 21, 2015 from his hideout in Takoradi.
He admitted the offence in his caution statement.
