The case of obtaining money by false pretence involving one Ebrima Barry was recently heard at the Bundung Magistrates’ Court before Magistrate Cham.
Testifying, Lamin Sey told the court the accused came to his compound and took money from him with the intention of giving him a plot of land.
The witness added that since 2010, the accused did not allocate him the land as promised, and he (the witness) could not get his money from the accused.
He added that the accused continued to make flimsy excuses anytime he requested for the money since he could not allocate a land for him as they agreed.
Sey further told the court the accusedstopped visiting him and when he asked of his whereabouts, he was told the accused had transferred without his notice.
When he tried to find out the whereabouts of the accused, he was told the accused was in Brikama, he said, adding that when he confronted him, the accused said he had nothing to do with him.
The case continues.
