It could be recalled that the Banjul High Court recently struck out the ex parte motion filed by the state, thus leading to the appeal.

Carnegie Mineral company and its General Manager are standing trial in The Gambia on two counts of Economic Crime and one count of stealing.

The case was at that juncture adjourned to 29th May for ruling.
