The lead counsel for the embattled Chinese En Huang, popularly known as Aisha Huang, has expressed surprise that the Ministers of Lands and Natural Resources, Samuel Abu Jinapor, and Justice, Godfred Yeboah Dame, were present at the Accra High Court for the hearing.
The Chinese galamsey businesswoman appeared in court with four other Chinese on Tuesday, October 11, after the Attorney General’s Department filed four charges against them.
They were all denied bail and taken into custody.
The Lands Minister and the Attorney General were both present in court.
Nkrabea Effah-Dartey, speaking on TV3’s Midday Live on Friday, October 14, insisted that the case involving Aisha Huang is being blown out of proportion.
As a result, he says he can’t imagine how a whole Minister of Lands and Natural Resources will appear in court.
“There has been so much discussion about this matter that it must require the Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, my learned friend Samuel Abu Jinapor, to appear in court.” “To do what?” he enquired.
“Imagine the entire Attorney General dressed in his robe coming to court,” he wondered.
The case has been rescheduled for Thursday, November 24.
Captain (rtd) Effah-Dartey was relieved that his client had been remanded into prison custody rather than police custody, as ordered by a Circuit Court.
He claims that the High Court’s decision allows him to visit her in prison.
“This could never happen in BNI cells.”
