Former national chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr. Freddie Blay, is defending three Chinese citizens who have been charged with unlawful mining (galamsey) in connection with the prosecution of galamsey queen Aisha Huang.

On Tuesday, October 11, 2022, he was represented in court by a coworker, Ekeleba Blay.

Bail was rejected for the trio.

The National Investigation Bureau has been given custody of the accused people.

The three are accused of taking part in illicit mining operations.

The accused were given receipts for the purchase of mining concessions, Attorney General Godfred Yeboah Dame informed the court.

Additionally, he claimed that their WhatsApp conversations revealed they were engaged in unlawful mining.

The three suspects have all entered a not-guilty plea.

There was no interpreter present, therefore the plea of one other accused person—a Vietnamese—was not accepted.

By the adjournment date of 24 October 2022, the state is required to submit 18 additional documents, including 8 witness statements.
