The Commercial Division of the Accra High Court has struck out Mr Clifford Duke Mettle as a defendant in a suit filed by the receiver of the defunct uniBank against the shareholders and directors of the erstwhile bank.
Mr Mettle’s name was struck out as a defendant on September 28, 2018.
He is, therefore, not part of people who have been sued by the Receiver of uniBank, Nii Amanor Dodoo, for allegedly playing various roles leading to the collapse of the bank.
The court, presided over by Justice Jennifer Abena Dadzie, held that Mr Mettle was not a necessary party to the suit and, accordingly, struck out his name.
“It is hereby ordered that the name of the 13th defendant (Mr Mettle) be and is hereby struck out of this suit as he is not a necessary party to the suit,” the presiding judge ordered.
