Application for Bail Variation  by Galamsey Queen Aisha Huang Dismissed

Criminal High Court 3 presided over by Justice Iddirsu Abdulai has dismissed  a bail variation application for portions of the bail conditions imposed by a sister court on Galamsey Queen  Aisha Huang and four others.
The sister High Court  presided over by Justice  Charles Edward Ekow Baiden at the time of granting the accused persons bail ordered that they report to the Police Headquarters twice every week even though the accused persons are ordinarily resident in Kumasi.
In their Application,  the accused persons were praying  the Court to allow them to report to the Police Regional  Command in Kumasi  in the Ashanti Regional instead of commuting twice a week to Accra just to report themselves to the Police.
Delivering  his ruling  in court today,  Justice Iddirsu Abdulai’s court  noted that the applicant failed to demonstrate that the bail conditions imposed on them has brought  any hardship  on them.
It was the court’s expectation that the applicants would have presented to the court evidence  such as hotel payments or air travel  receipts  to show that they are indeed burdened by the bail conditions that require them to report  twice a week to the Police Headquarters in  Accra. The court on the basis  of its argument for want of compelling evidence dismissed the bail variation application.
