Aisha Huang Avoids Questions About Her Marriage

Tuesday, Aisha Huang, the Chinese national on trial for illegal mining and other offenses, asked the Accra High Court for permission to avoid answering queries regarding her marriage.

According to her, there is a great deal of “fake news” about her marriage, so the prosecution’s questioning about it causes me concern.

During her cross-examination of the accused, the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Yvonne Atakora Obuobisa, questioned her about her marriage to other Ghanaian males besides Anthony Fabian.

Prior to that, the DPP confronted the accused with documents from the Comptroller-General of the Ghana Immigration Service indicating that the individual the accused claimed to have married in China in 2009 does not exist in any Ghanaian database.

The prosecutor asserted, “There are no records in the entire database of the Ghana passport office of any passport being issued to anyone named Anthony Fabian.”

In her response, Aisha Huang stated, “I cannot corroborate this. And I don’t believe I must know this from the office.”

The DPP then queried the accused, “Aside from the so-called Anthony Fabian, did you marry any other Ghanaians?”

“I wish to determine if it is possible to not respond to this query. In addition, there are numerous false reports about my marital status, which causes me concern,” the accused responded.

The prosecutor then presented the defendant with a document and asked her to identify Amoah Prince Kenneth. Aisha responded, “This person has not been implicated in this matter.”

The presiding judge, Justice Lydia Osei Marfo, instructed her to answer the question, stating, “When a document is presented in court, you must respond to questions. Indicate to the court who is listed on the form.”

The accused then told the court that the aforementioned Amoah Prince was her partner, but that she was not the one who listed him as her partner on the application form, despite admitting to providing the information to the person who filled out the form.

Mrs. Obuobisa then asked Aisha Huang to tell the court who Daniel Oduro Acheampong is, to which the defendant responded, “I cannot recall any such name.”

The prosecutor inquired, “Were you ever married to one Daniel Oduro Acheampong at Akim Oda?” the defendant responded, “No.”

“I assert that you entered into a second marriage with Daniel Oduro Acheampong on July 8, 2018, with Shi Yumein as a witness,” the DPP stated. Aisha also denied this.

She was then shown a marriage certificate for the aforementioned union, but the defendant claimed it is not her signature.

In concluding her cross-examination, the DPP informed Aisha that between February 2015 and May 2017, she conducted mining operations at Bepotenten in the Amansie Central District of the Ashanti Region without a license.

The defendant denied the allegation and stated, “I have never engaged in mining activity nor have I ever visited the location mentioned by the defense attorney.”

In the meantime, the court has ordered the prosecution to file its written address on or before September 20, 2023, while defense counsel has until October 11 to do the same.

A date for the judgment was set for October 12, 2023, but Aisha Huang would be brought to court on August 16 for the case to be mentioned.
