10 Chinese nationals charged with illegal firearms in Ghana

Posted:

 Authorities say 10 Chinese nationals accused of illegal mining in Ghana now face firearms charges in court.

   Justice Francis Obiri on Monday granted the subjects $12,000 bail each and adjourned the case until a hearing later this month.

   Each of the defendants is accused of illegal firearms possession, and they pleaded not guilty to the charges through an interpreter in court.

   Authorities say they were tipped off to reports that the Chinese citizens were illegally mining in the Ashanti region of Ghana.

   Police say that a search of their premises led to the retrieval of at least nine firearms along with ammunition.
