President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has spoken for the first time following the rearrest of galamsey Kingpin Aisha Huang.

Reacting to this, Akufo-Addo at the annual Ghana Bar Association conference said the Attorney General has his full support for the investigations.

“I want to assure you of my full support of the Attorney General in his determination to prosecute and her collaborators who apparently insists on flouting our laws on galamsey and illegal mining. I expect if they are found guilty that the courts will apply the full rigor amended acts 995 which will increase substantially for breaches of the law,” he said.

Aisha Huang was recently arrested for engaging in galamsey-related activities. She is reported to have entered the country via the Togo boarder after her deportation.

Aisha Huang has since been remanded by an Accra High Court and is set to reappear with three others on September 14.

The Attorney General’s office has also assured that it will prosecute Aisha Huang for her past and present crimes.

It will be recalled that Aisha Huang gained notoriety as an illegal mining kingpin in 2017. She was arrested for the same conduct but later deported with the state discontinuing the trial against her.
