A trial on alleged criminal trespass involving four accused persons continued recently at the Brikama Magistrate’ Court before Magistrate Babucarr Secka.

Alieu Jabang, Kaku Jabang, Yusupha Jabang and Yaya Jabang were all charged with criminal trespass, threatening violence and disobedience to lawful order.

Testifying for the prosecution, Dudu Gomez told the court that on 12 May 2010, he was going with his younger brother, Francis Gomez, for hunting when they met the accused persons clearing a land.

He said the accused persons stopped them and asked them whether they were the sons of one Amie Sumg, the alkalo of Sambuya village, and they responded in the negative.

“The accused persons told us that if we were the sons of Amie Sumg, they would kill us and kill the said Amie Sumg,” the witness said, adding that the accused persons requested for the telephone number of the said Amie Sumg, but they said they did not know the telephone number.

He said they went home and informed their father who also went and informed the village Alkalo, adding that he later gave his statement to the Gunjur Police Station.

The case continues on 2 August 2011.
