Ghanaians are also curious as to whether the unspecified amount of gold that Forestry Commission employees took from the detained illegal miners and turned over to the police was examined by the relevant authorities in the nation to determine its authenticity or not.

Officials from the Forest Services Division in the area have clarified that the Chinese nationals lack the necessary authorization to run a mining facility within the nation.

After being brought before the local Sefwi Wiawso Magistrate Court, the suspects were given bail with sureties each.
