High Court orders Aisha Huang to open defence in illegal mining case

The High Court in has ruled that Aisha Huang, popularly known as the Galamsey Queen, must open her defence in the galamsey () charges brought against her.

Aisha Huang has been undergoing trial for several months following her arrest upon her return to Ghana and her alleged involvement in illegal mining activities.

During the trial, the prosecution presented evidence of previous illegal mining incidents, which had previously led to her deportation.

However, after the prosecution concluded its case, Aisha Huang‘s legal team filed a no-case application, arguing that the prosecution failed to establish a prima facie case that required her to answer.

After careful consideration of the application, the court dismissed it, finding no merit in the defence's argument.

The case has been adjourned until July 5, when Aisha Huang will have the opportunity to present her defence in response to the charges.
