Defendant ordered to pay over D250, 000

Wednesday, August 17, 2016

Principal Magistrate Hilary Abeke of the Kanifing Magistrates’ Court yesterday ordered one Ebrima Gassama, the defendant, to pay D154, 000, D50, 000, D50, 000 and 25 per cent interest.

This was contained in a judgment he delivered in favour of the plaintiff, Beatrice Badjie.

The plaintiff, Beatrice Badjie, was claiming for the recovery of D154, 000 being the money she paid to the defendant, based on a UK visa agreement which later failed.

She was also claiming D50, 000 as damages and D50, 000 for legal fees as well as 25 per cent interest.
