The trial of the Babylon 94, which began since April 2008, is yet to progress into a full-scale trial. Yet again on the resumption of the case last Tuesday 26th August 2008 from where it was left, it was adjourned until 9th September 2008.

On the resumption of the case on Tuesday at the Brikama Magistrates' Court, before Senior Magistrate Edrissa Mbai, the State Counsel, Lawyer Buba Bojang, applied for the State to be given some time, adducing that the State was preparing fresh charges.

He maintained that the said charges were almost ready, promising that the case would proceed at the next adjourned date.

However, the accused persons were all in court, but their counsel, Lawyer Antouman Gaye was not in court.

The accused persons were previously charged with a three- count charge of arson, being armed in public, and conspiracy to commit a felony.
