Galamsey fight: 'Higher authority' aids culprits return - Sir John

Chief Executive Officer of the Forestry Commission (FC), is apprehensive government effort to rid forest reserves of illegal miners could be crippled by some powerful persons in society.

Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie popularly known as 'Sir John', says despite the successes chalked by the galamsey fight, some persons arrested for engaging in illegal mining [galamsey] in the country's forest reserves are back to business thanks to some people controlling the system.

He cited the recent case where some persons together with some soldiers, were arrested for unlawfully engaging in galamsey activity in the Aprapraman forest reserve in the Ashanti region.

"Somebody with authority higher than mine, I'm sure, rang whoever they wanted to ring and said that these were inter-ministerial soldiers or whatever they call them and said that they were there...," he said on PM Express on JOYNEWS on Tuesday.
