Isaac Nana Danso, Managing Director of Chief Danso Memorial School at Assin Fosu, was on Monday granted bail in the sum of GH¢1,200 with one surety by a circuit court in Cape Coast for allegedly failing to make social security payments on behalf of his employees.

He was expected to have paid the sum of GH¢1,123.78 to the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT). This includes cumulated penalty for the delay in payment.

Danso, pleaded not guilty and he will re-appear on April 30.

Prosecuting, Inspector Christian Victor Wood-Ackom told the court presided over by Mr Beresford Acquah, that between July and December last year, SSNIT conducted inspection into the salaries and wages books of Danso's company and detected the non-payments.

The prosecution said an amount of GH¢272.56 which had been deducted from the salaries and wages of the employees, was not paid to the Trust.

Inspector Wood-Ackom said the unpaid contributions attracted a penalty of GH¢851.22, increasing the company's indebtedness to GH¢1,123.78.

He said several demands by way of contacts, persuasions and demand notices made to Danso to defray the debts proved futile.

The court also granted bail in the sum of GH¢200 with a surety to Issa Mohammed, Managing Director of Sunrise Herbal Centre at Assin Fosu, for similar offence.
