Aisha Huang refused bail; remanded after appearing in court

Chinese illegal mining kingpin Aisha Huang has pleaded not guilty to two charges at the Circuit Court in Accra Wednesday.

The charges are engaging in sale and purchases of minerals without valid licence and Mining without licence.

Aisha Huang, who appeared with three others, spoke through an interpreter.


The court presided over by Samuel Bright Acquah is currently considering her bail application.

En Huang, aka Aisha Huang, a deportee businesswoman, who managed to re-enter Ghana to allegedly embark on mining without a license, is likely to face 24 months imprisonment if found guilty of breaching the Ghana Immigration Service laws.

Aisha was deported in 2018 when the State filed a nolle prosequi (an application to halt a trial) after standing trial over illegal mining activities.

Meanwhile, the Attorney General Godfred Dame has said the state will prosecute the Aisha Huang for her past and recent crimes.
