An Accra High Court has granted bail to Aisha Huang and her four colleagues accused of engaging in illegal mining activities (galamsey) in the country.
This was after the presiding judge, Justice Charles Ekow Baiden indicated that the prosecutors failed to prove how granting the accused persons bail will interfere in their investigations and the trial of the case.
They were granted bail to the tune of GHS 500,000 with two sureties who must all be of Ghanaian descent and residing in the country.
She and her four other colleagues are also to report themselves twice a week to the Inspector General of Police (IGP) and the Director General of the Immigration Service of Ghana or their appointed representatives.
This was the third attempt at securing bail for the accused persons, Aisha Huang, the Chinese lady who is alleged to be connected to powerful people in high places and has defied the countries laws with regard to mining.
She is alleged to have video recordings of her sex escapades with these powerful people and threatened to blackmail them if they ever dared to touch her and her business.
She was remanded in prison custody and fresh charges were leveled against her which got the judge to move the date to June 2 for trial to commence.
But at the sitting on Friday June 2, the judge questioned the prosecutors evidence which he (the judge) also said was not proof enough to continue keeping the suspects in prison custody.
