Aisha Huang’s situation so far makes me sad – Effah-Darteh

Aisha Huang’s situation so far makes me sad – Effah-Darteh

The lead Counsel for the embattled Chinese En Huang, also known as Aisha Huang, has expressed sadness over the way and manner in which the accused is being treated.

First, he stated that the initial story was that Aisha Huang was arrested for illegal small-scale mining (Galamsey), but this was not the case. She was picked up from her residence.

When she was transferred from the National Intelligence Bureau (NIB), formerly known as the Bureau of National Investigation (BNI), to prison custody, an 11-member interrogation team was assembled.

He expressed his sadness about the situation.

Mr Effah-Darte said on Key Points on TV3 on Saturday, October 15, “the way we are treating Aisha Huang makes me sad.”

“When she was being transferred to prison custody, the BNI sent an 11-member delegation to question her.”

Earlier in the week, he expressed surprise that the Ministers of Lands and Natural Resources, Samuel Abu Jinapor, and Justice, Godfred Yeboah Dame, were both 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 the 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.”
