An Accra High Court has ordered the release of all accounts belonging to the former Chief Executive Officer of the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA), Sylvester Mensah.

The order followed a motion moved by lawyer for the Financial Intelligence Center (FIC), Arthur Chambers.

Mr Mensah's accounts at Access Bank, United Bank for Africa (UBA), Energy Bank and Ecobank were frozen during Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) investigations into alleged financial malpractices that happened at the NHIA when he was the Chief Executive.

But the FIC after completing it’s investigations into the allegations, asked the Financial Tax Court to release the accounts because it found no wrongdoing against Mr. Mensah, citifmonline reported.
