The Accra Circuit Court 9 is today, Wednesday, September 14, 2022, expected to hear charges on mining without license, and engaging in the sale and purchase of minerals without valid license against Aisha Huang.
The notorious galamsey queen is standing trial with three other Chinese nationals; Jong Li Hua, Huang Jei and Huaid Hai Hun, and their pleas are yet to be taken.
The re-arrest of Aisha Huang has led to public discussion about how secure the country’s borders are and how committed the government is to fighting illegal mining. Many people feel that the government has betrayed its people.
President Nana Akufo-Addo and Attorney General, Godfred Yeboah Dame, have both expressed their commitment to a full, fair, and just prosecution.
Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, Information Minister, has said that the Prosecutors handling Aisha Huang’s case will be expected to disclose details of her re-entry into the country.
“Yes, it is all available in the Court docket, which will be provided. When they provide the further particulars of the offence in Court, the Prosecutors will go through all of those details with the specific dates and times of the information that they have”, he said
