Minister of National Security, Albert Kan-Dapaah has been told to explain to Ghanaians the issues surrounding the re-entry of Chinese galamsey Queen, Aisha Huang.
President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Institute for Security, Disaster and Emergency Studies, Dr Ishmael Norman believes that Mr Kan-Dapaah has a lot of questions to answer over how the office could not detect that she had returned to the country for weeks.
Speaking on the Ghana Tonight show on TV3 Tuesday September 6, Dr Norman said “This shows that the computer or data is not interoperable with National Security and Police. They should have been able to arrest her at the point of entry.
“There is a little bit of confusion of the immigration service about they should handle Aisha.”
“I won’t blame Immigration Service too much, but National Security. How come the National Security didn’t give the information?
“If she were a terrorist, she may have caused damaged over the past two weeks that she has been in the country,” he told host Alfred Ocansey.
“She knows she is protected by incriminating information she may be having on officials,” he added.
On Monday September 5, an Accra Circuit Court remanded into custody 4 Chinese nationals for their alleged involvement in illegal small-scale mining activities.
Hearing the case Monday September 5, three suspects, Jong Li Huang, Huang Jei and Huiad Hua pleaded not guilty in court to a charge of engaging in sales and purchases of minerals without license.
Aisha Huang who was deported following her involvement in galamsey activities is facing charges of engaging in sale and purchases of minerals without license, as well as mining without license.
She is reported to have returned to the country under a different name. She reportedly applied for a TogoVisa and went through the borders into Ghana to continue her galamsey business in a town in the Ashanti Region.
