The prohibition of conduct case involving one Isatou Sarr yesterday continued before Principal Magistrate Ibrahim Kijera of the Bundung Magistrates’ Court.

It continued with the evidence of defence witness two, one Sohna Jarju, who told the court she is a businesswoman who lives in Serrekunda.

She added that she knew the accused and the charge against her, saying that on the day in question one of their fathers, called Papa Mbye-Njie, came to the compound where the accused was living and entered her saloon and found the accused sitting.

The complainant started complaining that he came to collect the belongings of Abdul Aziz Njie, who is now deceased.

She said the accused at that juncture told the complainant that he would always raise the issue of the deceased’s belongings anytime he met the old woman, who, she went on, is suffering from high blood pressure.

The accused therefore told the complainant to walk out of the compound, she said.

At that juncture, the complainant then took the suitcase to his sister’s house, and the accused then said the things were worldly things.

“We did not even need them. The owner has died and left them behind,” she said, adding that the complainant then took the matter to the police station and reported the accused.
