Greenhalgh Demands Shs 7bn from Meddie
David Greenhalgh and Meddie Ssentongo were in court yesterday. After serving 18 months in prison for the criminal case, Meddie is now faced with a civil lawsuit in which David Greenhalgh wants the defendants property attached because of his closeness to former socialite, Shanita Namuyimba aka Bad Black.
Testifying before the commercial court, Greenhalgh told court that Bad Black had written to him apologizing for having stolen only USD 600,000 which is the equivalent of Ushs 1.5Bn and that the rest should be recovered from Meddie Ssentongo. Greenhalgh now wants USD 3Mn approximately Ushs7.6Bn from Meddie Ssentongo.
Court asked Greenhalgh if he had ever sent or transferred any money to Ssentongo directly, he said NO. Justice Adonyo adjourned the case. Bad Black and Meddie Ssentongo were sentenced 4 years and 18 months respectively for having embezzled USD 4M (Shs 11bn). Bad Black is still serving her sentence while Meddie served his jail term. The Anti-Corruption court did not ask them to refund the money prompting Greenhalgh to go to the commercial court.
Bad Black has since promised to refund her bit and now Greenhalgh is on Meddie's case for the USD 3m. Bad Black was David Greenhalgh's better half and also a minority shareholder in the Daveshan Development company which they jointly owned.
Did Ginimbi and Mimi Moana know they were about to die?
