The trial involving one Modou Nyang, accused of human trafficking, was heard yesterday at the Brikama Magistrates’ Court before principal Magistrate Hilary Abeke.

The case was adjourned as the defence representative, Lamin K. Darboe, had another matter at the Bundung Magistrates’ Court.

The state counsel A. Mendy from the NAATIP did not raise any objection, and the case was adjourned for today.

Modou Nyang was alleged to have, between January and July 2015 at Brikama and diverse places, acted as intermediary for the purpose of human trafficking by sending Gambian girls to Kuwait.

He was also alleged to have trafficked 20 Gambian girls by sending them to Kuwait.

It was further alleged that he recruited about 20 Gambian girls for one Lem Lem, an Ethopaian lady, for the purpose of human trafficking.
