In my candid opinion, former Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr Freddie Blay, should not have accepted to defend accused persons in the ongoing illegal mining case pending before the Accra High Court, Mr Obiri Boahen, a former General Secretary of the NPP has said.
In a radio interview monitored by Graphic Online on Accra based Okay FM on Wednesday morning, Nana Obiri Boahen said Mr Blay should have allowed other lawyers to stand in for the accused persons.
On Tuesday in court, the court was told that Mr Freddie Blay would be representing four accomplices to Chinese national En Huang, popularly known as Aisha Huang, who has been charged with the others for engaging illegal mining activities in Ghana.
The four accomplices are Gao Jin Cheng, Lu Qi Jun, Haibin Go and Zhang Zhipeng.
It was Lucy Ekeleba Blay, a private legal practitioner, who told the court that she was holding brief for Mr Freddy Blay in the case of the four accomplices of Aisha Huang.
