One Musa Trawally was recently arraigned before Magistrate Mbye of the Kanifing Magistrates’ Court, charged with personating a public officer.

He denied the charge and was granted court bail of D5,000 with a Gambian surety, who must deposit an ID card.

The charge sheet stated that on 27 August 2015, at Kairaba Avenue in the Kanifing Municipality, he falsely represented himself to be an officer, by arresting one Muhammed Joof, which representation was false and knew it to be false.

Hearing was adjourned to 7 September 2015.
