Alagie Darboe, who allegedly impersonated at the Truth, Reconciliation and Reparations Commission to be a State Intelligence Service employee, was arraigned on the 30th April, 2019, before Magistrate Joof of the Kanifing Magistrates’ Court. He denied any wrongdoing when the charge sheet was read to him.

It was alleged by prosecutors that on or about the 17th day of January, 2019, at the Truth, Reconciliation and Reparations Commission, in the Kanifing Municipality of the Republic of The Gambia, the accused, Alagie Darboe, claimed to be an employee of the State Intelligence Service which he knew at the time to be false. He was charged under Section 93 (b) of the Criminal Code.

Magistrate Joof granted him bail in the sum of D50,000 with two Gambian sureties who should deposit their national identification cards with the registrar of the court. They should also swear to an affidavit of means, and make sure that the accused person is always available whenever he is needed by the court.

The prosecuting officer, Sergeant 3577 Kebbeh, intended to parade his witnesses on the 14th May, 2019, to testify.
