Aisha Huang was denied bail yet again on Tuesday, October 11.

She was denied bail by an Accra High Court, where she is facing four charges pressed by the Attorney General.

Speaking to journalists after the case, Mr. Jinapor said “One of the key pillars on which we are seeking to deal with this issue of illegal small-scale mining is law enforcement and prosecution, particularly as it relates to foreigners.

“As you can see, the Attorney-General himself was in court and he himself is conducting this trial, prosecuting the cases in a very spirited and enthusiastic manner.

“I think it helps my work, when you have an Attorney-General who is diligent and serious about prosecution and ensuring that all perpetrators are brought to book, I think it is a big boost and I am very thankful to him for the work he is doing.

“We will continue with our efforts on all fronts – law enforcement, reforms as well as the prosecutorial part, which we are fully committed to.

“As you can tell, this Aisha Huang lady, the government of President Akufo-Addo is committed to bringing her and other persons who are involved in illegal mining to face the full rigors of the laws.”
