Aisha Huang’s Lawyer Sets Condition For Which He Might Stop Defending His Client

The issue of Aisha Huang has suddenly become a major topic in the country. Her arrest has raised eyebrows as to how come the galamsey queen was able to maneuver her way back into the country after earlier claims that she had been deported. In the past few days a lot of revelations have been made with President Akufo-Addo’s comments one of the most interesting. Since then there have been contradictory comments regarding how Aisha left the country years ago and how she came back.

Even more surprising was when Ghanaian noticed the lawyer defending Aisha Huang. It was no other than Captain Retired Nkrabea Effah Dartey, a former MP for Berekum. The former MP is lead counsel while his son supports the counsel team. Effah Dartey has seen his clients charged with fresh charges by the A-G last week. Many have questioned the lawyer as to why he is defending someone many see to be guilty and likely to go to jail.

According to Effah Dartey, he has a family to feed and so has to make a living out of his career. “I have a wife, children and grandchildren and so I am working for my daily bread.” Effah Dartey said. The host, Kwesi Parker Wilson then asked Effah Dartey if he will stop defending Aisha if he is given a position by President Akufo-Addo. Interestingly, the former NPP stalwart noted that he will gladly jump at that opportunity at a government position.

He boldly stated that whenever Ghanaians see him at court it means that his client has satisfied the necessary conditions of payment and so he is required to also do his job. Aisha Huang is expected to appear in court on September 27. Her lawyer says they will seek to go to the appeal court to contest certain new charges the Attorney General has levelled against his client.
