The trial of nine suspects who were accused of involvement in an alleged sale of purported gold commenced on 19 June 2014, before magistrate Tabally of the Kanifing magistrates’ court.

Oumie Saffiatou Jallow, Kemo Fatty, Sheikh Dawda York, Musa Bah (at large), Mansa Bah, Cherno Amidou Savage (at large), Ousman Sowe, Abdou Camara (at large) and Alpha Kanteh were earlier arraigned and charged with conspiracy and obtaining money by false pretence. They denied any wrongdoing.

Sergeant 3560 Colley called the first prosecution witness, one Kemo Fatty, to testify.

Sergeant 3560 Colley later told the court that he was needed by the IGP, and applied for an adjournment.

The defence counsel, Richards, Gomez and Marong, did not object to the application.

The case was adjourned to 26 June 2014, for continuation of the hearing.
