"Rescind Your Decision To Represent Aisha Huang's Accomplices" - AFFA To Freddie Blay

A group calling itself Alliance for Footsoldiers Advocacy (AFFA) has called on the Former National Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Freddie Blay to rescind his decision to represent accomplices of Aisha Huang standing trial in the ongoing galamsey case.

According to AFFA, it is scandaliszed and dumbfounded by the decision of Freddie Blay.

In a release sighted by, it said "The Alliance For Footsoldiers Advocacy (AFFA) is scandalized and dumbfounded by the decision of Freddie Blay, immediate-past National Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to legally represent some suspected Chinese illegal miners standing trial"

"As much as we appreciate the fact that Freddie Blay is a lawyer who has a fiduciary duty to represent clients who request for his services, we believe his decision to defend accomplices of Aisha Huang is unpopular, morally subversive, and a direct slap on the face of President Akufo-Addo's fight against illegal mining"

"Freddie Blay's political status, vis-a-vis, former National Chairman of the ruling party and Board Chairman of GNPC imposes a tacit obligation of due diligence, moral reflection and principle of public perception on him, considering the level of public interest in the Aisha Huang case.

AFFA says it is by the press release calling on Mr. Blay to as a matter of urgency cease holding himself as lawyer for tge suspected Chinese illegal miners.

Below is a copy of the release:
