All the businesses belonging to Chinese national, Aisha Huang in Ghana have been shut down according to the Ashanti Regional Minister, Simon Osei-Mensah.
The Minister said the decision to close down her businesses was taken after her re-arrest for her involvement in alleged illegal mining.
“She had several businesses, but now all of them have been locked up,” the Minister said on Eyewitness News.
Despite being deported in 2018, Aisha Huang has made a return to Ghana with reports suggesting that she came to the country from one of the neighboring country through a land border.
But she has been rearrested alongside three others for their involvement in alleged illegal mining and have been charged with mining without license and engaging in the sale and purchase of minerals.
Surprisingly, Mr Simon Osei-Mensah revealed that the state was unaware of the operation of Aisha Huang’s businesses despite her deportation in 2018 until her second arrest.
“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,” he said.
After pleading not guilty to the charges at the Accra Circuit Court on last Friday, Aisha Huang and the three others who have been arrested are expected to reappear in court on September 14, 2022.
