Aisha Huang

Fresh details have emerged that suspected Chinese illegal mining operative Aisha Huang escaped lawful custody and sneaked out of Ghana in 2018.

This is a sharp contradiction to claims by some government officials that she was repatriated and not deported. An Accra Circuit Court on Wednesday heard that Aisha Huang was “arrested for similar offence but managed sneaked out of the country after having changed details on her Chinese passport”.

She again sneaked back into Ghana early in 2022, according to facts presented by the prosecutors in court on Wednesday, September 14, 2022.

“The first accused again resumed the small-scale mining activities without license and together with 2nd, 3rd and 4th accused persons are also into the purchase and sale of minerals in Accra without valid authority”, the prosecution had told the court.

Accomplice collapses

Meanwhile there was drama in court on Wednesday morning when the case of notorious illegal mining suspect, Aisha Huang was called.

During the proceedings at the Accra Circuit Court, something seemed off about one of her accomplices.

The said lady was earlier seen escorted into the court premises wearing a black T-shirt.

Denial bail

But the court remanded the accused persons into lawful custody. Huang and three other Chinese nationals will remain in police custody for the next two weeks.

The accused persons were charged for engaging in the sale and purchase of minerals without a license.

Lead counsel, Nkrabea Effah-Dartey on Wednesday, (14 September ), during proceedings, asked the court to grant the accused persons bail for fear of being treated unfairly by security officers.

They were earlier remanded as they had no legal representation during their first appearance in court. Sitting continues on September 27.
