- The AG's department for the third time a fresh charge sheet against Aisha
- The case has been adjourned to July 12 and 17, 2017 for main trial of the 'galamsey queen'
The Attorney General’s Department in Accra has for the third time filed a new charge sheet against the infamous Chinese galamsey queen, Aisha Huang and four other accomplices.
The senior state attorney Mrs Mercy Arthur who was in court today said, they have filed a new charge sheet that comes with a new fact sheet on July 5, 2017 to replace the second one filed on May 23, 2017.
The court also granted bail to the second and third accused persons who could not meet their bail conditions at last court appearance.
Charles Owusu Juanah, one of the accused told the court that, they have found their missing passports which was one of the requirement and submitted to the court registry.
The case has therefore been adjourned to July 12 and 17, 2017 for the commencement of the main trial of Aisha Huang.
A Chinese interpreter who was expected in court today to help with interpretation was absent forcing the court to adjourn the case.
The Chinese galamsey queen En Huang, also known as Aisha has been accused number of times for the past month for sneaking back to her mining site at Bepotenteng in the Amansie Central District in the Ashanti Region, few days after she was granted bail by an Accra High Court.
According to security officers of Volta Resources Limited, the galamsey kingpin, Aisha was spotted on June 4, 2017 in a black pick up vehicle, with tinted windows when she visited the mining site.
She was said to have carried away some mining equipment including batteries that could have served as relevant evidence in her court case before leaving the site.
