An Accra High court has dismissed an application for the variation of the bail conditions for Chinese ‘galamsey queen’ Aisha Huan and four others.

According to the court presided over by Justice Iddirsu Abdulai, Aisha and her four other Chinese counterparts failed to demonstrate that the bail conditions imposed on them have brought any hardship on them.

The court ruling follows a plea by lawyers of Aisha for a variation of bail conditions to enable the suspects to report themselves to the Ashanti regional police command twice a week instead of coming to Accra, which they claimed was having a financial toll on them.

They also cited financial constraints of traveling from Accra to Kumasi every week to report to the police. Their application was opposed to by the prosecution, who insisted the suspects continue to report themselves to the police in Accra.

The five Chinese were granted bail in June to the tune of GHs500,000 with two sureties who were all to be Ghanaians residing in Ghana.

They were also ordered to report themselves twice each week to the Inspector General of Police (IGP), and the Director General of the Immigration Service or any assigns of theirs. Aisha Huan and the other Chinese nationals also handed over their passports to officials of the court.

Aisha has been charged with undertaking small-scale mining operations, contrary to Section 99 (1) of the Minerals and Mining Act, 2006, (Act 703), and providing mine support services without valid registration with the Minerals Commission, contrary to Section 59 and 99 (2) of the Minerals and Mining Act.
