Aisha Huang charged at a High Court for 2015-2017 offences

Chinese businesswoman En Huang, also known as Aisha Huang, has been charged with four offences by the Attorney General’s Office for her actions between 2015 and 2017 as well as for her re-entry into Ghana.

She was re-arrested for committing similar offences prior to 2018, and the Attorney General and Minister of Justice requested the docket for those offences early this month.

However, her case was dropped after the state filed a nolle prosequi.

After that, she was allegedly deported to her home country, but there have been questions raised about this action, particularly recently after President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo expressed doubt in a radio interview.

“When you’re in a situation like Aisha Huang’s…

While on tour in the Volta Region, he stated, “I am not yet sure whether she was actually deported or whether she fled the country the first time and has now returned, or whatever, but there still seems to be some uncertainty about it.

He said on Ho-based Stonecity Radio, “Whichever way it is, she’s become the sort of nickname for all that galamsey represents and regrettably also for the involvement of Chinese nationals in Ghana in this particular illicit trade.

Mercy Arthur, the principal state’s attorney, went to the High Court on Friday, September 16, and filed four charges against the defendant.

The first is that she violated Section 99(2)(a) of the Minerals and Mining Act, 2006, Act 703, as amended by the Minerals and Mining (Amendment) Act 2019, Act 995, by conducting a mining operation at Bepotenten in the Ashanti Region between 2015 and 2017 without a permit.

The second offence is encouraging four Chinese people to mine at Bepotenten without a permit.

She also breaks Ghanaian law because she hired foreigners in violation of Section 24 of the Immigration Act of 2000, Act 573.

In violation of Section 20(4) of the Immigration Act, 2000, Act 573, she had also reentered Ghana.

On September 2, Friday, she was detained.
Aisha Huang and three other people are already being prosecuted on two counts at an Accra Circuit Court.
