Minister shocked at number of logs at Helena Huang’s timber firm

Savannah Regional Minister, Salifu Adam Braimah has ordered for the shutdown of embattled Chinese National, Helena Huang’s timber firm Brivywell Company located in Yipala, a farming community near Damongo in the Savannah region.

This follows claims of Ms Huang’s engagement in illegal logging and processing of rosewood after its ban for export to China for the past three years.

Addressing the media during a tour in the region, Mr Braimah, who expressed shock at the number of logs at the site, promised to clamp down on other illegal timber companies.

“We have allowed some unscrupulous persons into our vicinity, taking the law into their own hands to our disadvantage. They are making huge sums of money and at the same time making the environment highly unfriendly and unhealthy,” the Minister said.

Commenting on Ms Huang’s case, Mr Braimah revealed he had set up a nine-member committee with the mandate of investigating factors that militate against the efforts made to eliminate illegal logging.
