Why NDC Regional Minister Ordered The Release Of Excavators To Aisha Huang In 2016

It has come to light that when Aisha Huang was detained in 2016, excavators and a Toyota pickup truck that had been confiscated by the police were given back to her on the orders of John Alexander Ackon, the Ashanti regional minister at the time under the John Dramani Mahama administration.

Abdul Malik Kweku Baako claims that the deputy regional minister Andy Osei Okrah, along with the then-BNI, Police, Immigration, National Security, and the Military, led the operation in 2016.

The Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide newspaper presented a message from the Regional Commander of GIS to the Deputy Comptroller General Operations dated September 2, 2016, while speaking on Peace FM's "Kokrokoo" Morning Show on Wednesday, October 5, 2022.

I have a document dated September 2, 2016, from the Regional Commander of GIS to the Deputy Comptroller General Operations, Baako said in his submission. "Tension rise on Amansie Central over Chinese galamsey activities" is the memo's subject. This memo contains numerous references to Aisha Huang.

"The memo claimed that, among other things, "information gathered from the media indicated the following; Miss Huang, a Chinese woman, is alleged to be engaged in illegal mining activities that result in the destruction of cocoa farms and pollution of water bodies, as well as encroachment of other people's concessions."

"The woman in question, Miss Huang, was served with an invitation letter so that the command could determine the situation on the ground since residents and chiefs of the affected areas intend to demonstrate against unlawful mining activities. On Tuesday, September 30, 2016, she reported to the location where her statement was recorded.

The GIS notes that "our data reveal that the subject - Aisha Huang - is married to a Ghanaian by the name of Fabian Anthony for the previous nine years, which is the fascinating point in all of these statements. She claims to have met her husband in China in 2007.

"She added that her spouse had set up two businesses in the nation. She added that the spouse was forced to move to the US because the first company, FA Advance Ltd, failed in 2013.

"Aisha Huang is listed as the second director for Golden Asia Ltd., the second company, according to the paperwork we have in our possession. The business specializes in general merchant import, export, and mining.

According to Kweku Baako, "Miss Huang also claimed in her written declaration that her four excavators were released to her when the Ashanti Regional Minister indicated that the operation was carried out without his authorization."

Despite the operation being overseen by a deputy minister and other important figures in the security and intelligence infrastructure, Mrs. Huang received the returned materials, according to Baako.

The woman's equipment and Toyota pickup truck were released to her after the Regional Security Council determined that, no, they had carried out that action without consulting the minister. John Alexander Ackon served as the local minister during the time.

He added that it "was disheartening and didn't make sense to me" when the state opted to submit a nolle prosequi in 2017 to end the case. After that, she was sent home.

"We have a history of detaining Chinese nationals on the mining site and repatriating them. It is true that. In fact, we have returned 50,000 Chinese since 2005. Few have been prosecuted and tried, and only two or three are currently behind bars. It has been the State's policy to do so.

Repatriating the Chinese, in his opinion, does not serve as a forceful warning as it would if they were subjected to a harsh penalty.

"The Ghana Immigration Service will inform you that there are cases in which repatriation, rather than deportation, is the policy. I have the publications where they detained about 1,000 people and they begged to be returned.

"Voluntary repatriation is the term for it. Some will argue that we may not have the physical infrastructure to confine people in prison or other facilities, but we can still punish some. Punishment has a message, a deterrent, and "Kweku Baako was anxious.
