The Media Coalition Against Galamsey is demanding that, persons who are found culpable for assisting Aisha Huang, the galamsey queen, return back to Ghana be punished.
Dr. Ashigbey stated that a thorough investigation into the case is essential to the battle against illicit mining in light of the re-arrest of Aisha Huang after she was deported in 2018 for illegal mining.
â€œAisha Huang is not coming alone. There are very powerful people who will be aiding her to come, and it is important that we find out the people behind her return,â€ he added.
He also said we must make sure â€œwe exact the maximum punishmentâ€ to persons culpable.
â€œIn any endeavour of killing a serpent, if you donâ€™t cut the head off, it will come back at you, so we need to [deal with this] at the root of it,â€ Dr. Ashigbey.
Aish Huang was deported in 2018 because of her illegal mining activities.
The deportation was criticised as many felt she should have been prosecuted instead.
Reports indicate that she returned to Ghana from a neighbouring country through a land border.
She also has a Ghana Card with the name, Huang En.
The Attorney General plans to initiate prosecution against the suspect.
She has been charged with mining without license and engaging in the sale and purchase of minerals.
