What the state's first witness said in the Aisha Huang trial

Aisha Huang's trial for galamsey kingpin began today, Wednesday, November 9, 2022.

According to Aisha's counsel, Captain Nkrabeah Effah Dartey (Rtd), the Attorney General called his first witness to testify in the case, which ended in their favor.

According to the lawyer's statement to the media following the hearings, the witness, an immigration officer, stated that he has no personal information on the accused for unlawful mining.

"The attorney general produced a witness, an immigration officer, who came to claim that he had no personal independent knowledge regarding my client, Aisha Huang, being involved in unlawful mining," he explained.

Meanwhile, her bail was refused for the fourth time.

Her attorney described the scenario as an embarrassment to him, despite the fact that he claims it is part of the game.

Mr. Effah Dartey stated that his client, Aisha Hunag, sobbed in court due to her persistent refusal of release despite several pleas.

Captain Effah Dartey, speaking to press after the sessions on Wednesday, said that while the law allows them to seek for as many bails as they like, he sees it as a futile exercise after being rejected down four times.

"Once again, my bail application was denied, and I felt quite ashamed, but it's one of the intricacies of the game."

"The law allows us to repeat an application for bail as many times as we like, but given the judge's demeanor, it might not be a helpful exercise," he screamed.

He revealed why Aisha Huang burst into tears in court.

"My client was sobbing because she has been in detention since her arrest and every plea for bail is denied."

"Naturally, every human being will respond as she did. "I felt terrible for her," he added.

Aisha Huang was arrested for engaging in illegal mining otherwise known as galamsey and also trading in mining equipment without license from the Minerals Commission.
