One Malick Jassey Thursday opened his defence in the prohibition of conduct case involving him and others before Magistrate P. Sarra of the Brikama Magistrates’ Court.

Jassey testified that he recognised his co-accused persons and that Abdou Jarju is his son, the fourth accused.

He and the co-accused were supporters of APRC since the establishment of the party, and he is among the elders of APRC in Marakissa ward.

He could recall the day when the President went for a meeting at Marakissi ward, but he was not aware of anybody attempting to disrupt the meeting of the President.

According to Jassey, he did not know the reason why he was arrested, because he was out of the meeting grounds to ease himself, when he was called by a man he had never seen.

The man took him to a vehicle where he met the second accused, and both of them were taken to Brikama Police Station, he said.

The case continues.
