One Jainaba Jaiteh was arraigned before Basse Magistrates’ Court presided over by Magistrate S.M. Jallow on two counts of infanticide and concealing birth of a child contrary to sections 197 and 207 of the Criminal Code.

The prosecution represented by Sgt 3577 Kebbeh alleged that the suspect, Jainaba Jaiteh, sometime in the month of November 2017 at Allunhari Village caused the death of a child she delivered by dumping the child into a toilet located in her compound.

The prosecution also alleged that the accused on the same date and the same place gave birth to a child and endeavoured to conceal her birth and dumped the child into a toilet.

The accused was however granted bail of D50,000 with one Gambian surety who must depose to an affidavit of means and deposit his or her ID card with the court’s registry.
