Her counsel described the situation as an embarrassment to him, even though he says it is part of the antcis of the game.

Speaking to journalists after proceedings Wednesday, Captain Effah Dartey noted even though the law gives them the right to apply for as many bails as possible, he sees that to be an exercise in futility after being turned down four times.

“Once again unfortunately, my application for bail was turned down and I felt very embarrassed but it’s one of the nuances of the game.

“The law gives us an opportunity to repeat an application for bail as often as possible except that looking at the demeanour of the judge, it might not be a useful exercise,” he cried.

He explained why Aisha Huang wept in court.

“My client was crying because she has been in custody since her arrest and anytime application is made for her bail, she is turned down.

“Naturally every human being will react in the manner she did. I felt very sorry for her,” he said.

Aisha Huang was arrested for engaging in illegal miking otherwise known as galamsey and also trading in mining equipment without license from the Minerals Commission.
