Ebrima Barry, Africell Director of Administration, recently testified in a jewelry case involving one Ndey Korka Ndong, at the Kanifing Magistrates' Court.

Testifying before the court, Ebrima Barry told the court that he works at Africell as Director of Administration.

He stated that on 16th September 2009, his company was written to by the Kanifing Police Station, requesting his company to provide them with a print out number as indicated in the letter. He adduced that the purpose of the document was to facilitate the printing out of the number 7324182.

Still testifying the witness told the court that, "on 15th September 2009, at 10:39a.m, the account holder of 7324182 was communicating to 7123335. He confirmed that the number 7324182 was in the printout and it was also communicating to 7123335 at 11:12a.m, and 4:55p.m on the same date of 16th September, 2009."

Meanwhile, the Defence Counsel had applied for the fourth prosecution witness to be recalled for cross-examination on the grounds that he raised new issues in his testimony.

Cadet Inspector Mballow objected to the application made by the Defence Counsel. He argued that the defence had led his client and had chosen not to cross-examine the fourth witness. He stated that the fifth witness had testified and his testimony did not touch the evidence of the fourth witness, let alone raise new issues.

The case was adjourned to 13th January 2010 for ruling.
