It has emerged that Chinese illegal miner, Aisha Huang, possesses two Chinese passports with different identities and dates of birth which she uses for all her travels.
On one of her passports with the name Huang En and passport number G39575625, her date of birth is July 7, 1986.
That passport was issued on January 14, 2010.
The other passport has a different name – Huang Ruixia – and the passport number EE9994609. On this passport, she has an older date of birth, which is November 7, 1975.
This second passport was issued on January 14, 2019.
According to a statement released by the Minority’s Spokesperson on Foreign Affairs, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, her China Identity Card indicates that she was born on November 7, 1975 – this is the date of birth on her Huang Ruixia Chinese passport.
However, her Ghana non-citizen identity card has different information from her China identity card. Her date of birth on the Ghana identity card is July 7, 1986.
Mr Ablakwa said her first Chinese passport with the name Huang En had not expired on its scheduled expiry date of January 13, 2020, when she secured her second passport with the name Huang Ruixia on January 14, 2019.
“Even though Aisha Huang deliberately damaged the electronic component of her Ruixia Huang passport before her latest arrest, the Chinese government owes Ghana some urgent clarifications on the genuineness of both passports and, if they are genuine, why Aisha Huang was issued a second passport when her earlier passport hadn’t expired.”
The Minority also stated that Aisha Huang embarked on multiple trips to Togo since “her physical presence in Ghana from as far back as February 27, 2019.”
It alleged that these trips did not happen on the blind side of government and immigration officials.
“In other words, she didn’t sneak in and out through unapproved routes as the Ghanaian government’s jumbled narrative suggests.
“We come to the firm conclusion that the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia government ought to have known about her multiple travels between Ghana and Togo at a time we were told she had been deported to China.”
Per the Minority’s own expert forensic analysis conducted on Ghana Immigration Embarkation and Disembarkation Stamps in Aisha Huang’s Chinese passport, all the stamps are genuine.
This confirms their belief that top government officials knew her whereabouts and travels in and outside the country.
“Our irrefutable investigations reveal that Aisha Huang physically presented herself to Ghana Immigration officials at the Aflao border on February 27, 2019, and on April 28, 2019.
“Despite her changing names and different dates of birth, it is most bizarre that Aisha Huang’s biometrics didn’t raise alarm at the Aflao border immigration post considering that her biometrics had previously been captured at numerous locations including at the Kotoka International Airport and the NIA.
“Her well-stored details as contained in Ghana’s PISCES (Personal Identification Secured Certified Evaluation System) should equally have raised alarm if she didn’t have top collaborators within our security institutions,” the Minority argued.
There were allegations that the Chinese ‘galamseyer’ holds a Ghana Card, claims the National Identification Authority (NIA) has denied.
According to the Authority, its National Identity Register (NIR) does not contain any record of a person named Aisha Huang.
“Put differently, the name AISHA HUANG does not exist in the National Identification System (NIS) database”, the NIA said in a statement dated September 6, 2022.
