The First Atlantic Bank has asked to be removed from the case brought by Deborah Seyram Adablah, a former NSS employee at the company, against Ernest Kwasi Nimako, one of its directors, and the bank itself.
Both Kwasi Nimako and the Bank were sued on allegations that they encouraged the abuse of female employees and lured them into unsavory relationships. The bank manager was charged with breaking a relationship agreement with the former NSS employee. First Atlantic Bank was listed as the second defendant in the High Court’s writ, but it has subsequently asked for the writ to be reviewed so that it might be removed from the case.
First Atlantic Bank asked for the dismissal of seven writ paragraphs in an application dated January 24 “on the ground that they disclose no legitimate cause of action against the applicant.” In the sections of the writ that were asked to be omitted, paragraphs 7,8,9,10,11,31,32,33,34,36, and 37, the bank is accused of witnessing as senior male bank personnel harass female employees sexually. The court will be moved on Thursday, February 16 to hear the case.
