Ranking Member on Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has asked for a full scale probe into circumstances leading to the deportation of En Huang, a.k.a Aisha Huang, the Chinese national who is currently in the grips of National Security for illegal mining.
Aisha Huang was deported in 2018 after she was arrested over similar charges only for intelligence led exercise by the security agencies in the Ashanti Region to reveal that the ‘Galamsey Queen’ has been domiciled in the country for months. Unconfirmed reports also suggest that she may have been resident in the country way beyond that period.
Alarmed that such a suspicious character outwitted the security agencies, Mr. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa said “At this point, we are very doubtful. Aisha Huang is clear that she has very deep roots and she has allies up there in high places who are helping her to beat the system.
This is why we insist that the only way to unravel the Aisha Huang debacle is to have a full-scale probe into this matter.
We must have an independent investigation to know if truly she was deported, where was she deported to. China or Togo?" He quizzed.
The ‘galamsey’ kingpin, Aisha Huang, was arrested in 2017 for engaging in illegal mining. The 47-year-old Chinese national was later deported in 2019 by the government, a move which triggered questions about Ghana’s commitment to eradicating the menace.
Few days ago, news broke about the re-arrest of the ‘galamsey’ Kingpin in her residence at Kumasi for her alleged involvement in the sale and purchase of minerals without a license.
The announcement of her re-arrest and return to the country shocked many Ghanaians and has brought back the discourse on the country’s fight against ‘galamsey’.
Meanwhile, the Attorney General has called for the case docket of the galamsey queen and says they will begin prosecution of Aisha Huang for her past and current offences.
