The former CEO of UT Bank, Prince Kofi Amoabeng, has been granted bail in the sum of GhC110 million after being arrested over alleged charges of stealing and money laundering.

The court presided over by Justice Emmanuel Essandor also ordered that he produces two sureties, of persons who earn not less than GHc2,000 per month.

He was also to deposit his passport to the registrar and report to the police every Monday and Friday.

He has pleaded not guilty to stealing GHc51, 334, 306.08 and $8, 612, 829.20 respectively between 2009 and 2017.

Mr Amoabeng, according to sources, was picked up in his office in Accra Tuesday and sent to the Circuit Court Four.
