The Ashanti Regional Minister, Simon Osei-Mensah has disclosed that investments belonging to the notorious Chinese national in Ghana, Aisha Huang have been closed down.
According to him, this follows her arrest for her involvement in alleged illegal mining and breaching immigration rules. He said the state didn’t know that Aisha Huang’s businesses in the country were still operating even after she was deported in 2018 until her recent re-arrest.
“She had several businesses, but now all of them have been locked up.” “The businesses were there, but we didn’t know they belonged to her. How she got here, I cannot tell. The investigations will unravel that,” the Minister told Citi Fm.
Aisha was siad to have illegally entered Ghana through a land border country, Togo as she sneaks out of the country anytime she picks up information about her potential arrest.
The Minister indicated that Aisha was arrested through the cooperation of various security agencies.
She was re-arrested together with three others namely, Johng Li Hua, Huang Jei, Huaid Hai Hun and arraigned before an Accra Circuit Court last Friday for their involvement in alleged illegal mining.
They have been charged with mining without license and engaging in the sale and purchase of minerals but they all pleaded not guilty to the crime.
The case has been adjourned to September 14, 2022.
