Persons Involved In Aisha Huang’s Case To Face The Law – Lands Minister

The Minister for Lands and Natural Resources, Samuel Abu Jinapor says the President Akufo-Addo-led government is committed to prosecuting Aisha Huang and other persons who are involved in illegal mining.

He said this in an interview with the media after proceedings in court on Tuesday, October 11, 2022 regarding Aisha Huang’s case.

He indicated that one of the key pillars on which the Ministry is seeking to deal with the issue of illegal small-scale mining is law enforcement and prosecution particularly as it relates to foreigners.

He added, “as you can see, the Attorney-General himself is conducting the trial and prosecuting the case in a spirited and enthusiastic manner”.

The Minister reiterated that his outfit will continue with efforts on all fronts on law enforcement reforms and as well as the prosecutorial path which they are fully committed to.

The Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, Godfred Yeboah Dame, on his part told the Accra High Court presided over by Justice Lydia Osei Marfo, that the State will file 8 witness statements in the trial of ‘galamsey’ kingpin, Aisha Huang.

According to the Attorney-General, he initially filed four witness statements but the state will withdraw the same and file a fresh set of eight witness statements.

The Attorney-General subsequently prayed the court to adjourn sitting to allow his office the time and space to file the documents as suggested.

Meanwhile, a case involving three Chinese and one Vietnamese who are alleged to be accomplices of the notorious ‘galamsey’ kingpin Aisha Huang, have been denied bail and case adjourned to November 1, 2022.
