En Huang, also known as Aisha Huang, has been sentenced to four years, six months in prison.
Aisha Huang, who has also been slapped with a GH¢48,000 fine, is also to be deported after serving her jail term.
That was after the Criminal Division of the Accra High Court presided over by Justice Lydia Osei-Marfo, found her guilty on the charge of undertaking a mining operation without a licence, facilitating the participation of persons engaged in a mining operation and the illegal employment of foreigners.
She was also convicted on her own plea in the charge of entering Ghana while prohibited from re-entry.
It was the court’s opinion that the state, led by the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Yvonne Atokora Obuobisa, has proven beyond reasonable doubt that Aisha committed the crime.
Facing the judge in her usual nose mask and white scarf, Aisha was calmly seated in the dock one hour into the reading of the judgement.
While Aisha Huang had denied all the charges, it was the court’s view that she contradicted herself in her defence statements in the trial which lasted for one year, two months.
