The Chinese woman arrested for illegally mining in Ghana, Aisha Huang went berserk Tuesday May 23, 2017, making angry gestures in protest of her continuous detention by the Criminal High Court.
The court presided by Justice Charles Edward Ekow Baiden for the second time denied Ms Huang’s request for bail—a decision she did not take lightly banging her fist on her seat as tears rolled down her cheeks.
Ms Huang was arrested on Saturday, May 6, following the arrest of four other Chinese nationals who confessed working as illegal miners for Aisha at Bepotenten in the Amansie West District of the Ashanti region.
The Ghana Immigration Service (GIS) said Aisha was the kingpin of a Chinese galamsey gang, with other members being Gao Jin Cheng 45, Lu Qi Jun 39, Haibin Gao 26 and Zhang Zhi Peng 23.
Ashanti Regional Deputy Commander of GIS, Chief Superintendent Peter Adu-Appiah, disclosed that it took officers of the Service more than four hours to get the lady arrested as she let loose her wild dogs on them, in an effort to resist arrest.
Aisha Huang was finally nabbed when she went to the GIS regional office to plead for the release of the four Chinese illegal miners, even though she was being sought after without her knowledge.
