The court presided over by Justice Angelina Mensah-Homiah J. in a November 4, 2019 ruling, however, refused to enforce the contractual interest at the rate contained in the respective agreements between Menzgold and the respective plaintiffs because it had been found to be a Ponzi Scheme in a previous suit.
