A state prosecutor in the Aisha Huang case has provided the clearest indication of what happened to the Chinese mining queen in 2018 when she was forcibly evicted out of the country.
Giving the facts of her case during the hearing where four new charges were filed against Huang, Mercy Arthur, a principal state attorney, laid to rest the deportation-repatriation debate as she revealed Aisha was repatriated.
According to the state attorney, the Attorney General on the 19th of December 2018, terminated Aisha’s ongoing trial and on the same day, “the Comptroller-General of Ghana Immigration Service revoked her permit to remain in Ghana indefinitely, ordered her immediate repatriation to China, and directed her to stay out of Ghana until the Comptroller-General approved of her future re-entry into Ghana”.
Mercy Arthur added: “Consequently, she was put on Ethiopian Airlines Flight No. Et 920, which took off at about 12:50 pm on 19h December 2018 to Addis-Ababa, Ethiopia, en route to Guangzhou-China”,
She added that Aisha Huang “sat on seat No.32 F(Economy Class) and her travel documents handed to the captain of the flight to be handed to her at her final destination, Guangzhou China.”
