The two Chinese have escaped after the FDA realised that the fish were unwholesome.
The Tema High Court has issued an arrest warrant for two Chinese nationals after they allegedly imported unwholesome tilapia into the country.
The two, Zhang Ming Alias Gary, 37, and Chu Yong Shuai, 29, have been charged with the offence of importing tilapia fish in commercial quantity into Ghana without permit contrary to the section 130 (1) and (3) of Fisheries Act 2002, (Act 625).
They are believed to be hiding around Madina in the Greater Accra Region or perhaps outside the country.
The Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Olivia Turkson, said that the two suspects on January, 2016 imported 1,310 cartons of tilapia into a cold store in Tema for sale.
According to her, the police invited the the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) to inspect the imported tilapia to find out whether the fish were wholesome for human consumption or not.

The FDA, however, realized that the fish were unwholesome.
