The case involving former deputy director of Food Hygiene and Standards at the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare in Banjul, Bolong Jobarteh, alongside Kemo Touray and Ahmed Samba, could not proceed on Monday at the Banjul Magistrates’ Court before Principal Magistrate Taiwo Ade Alagbe.

They were charged with three counts which included conspiracy to effect unlawful purpose, sale of noxious article and sale of unwholesome food.

The adjournment followed the application made by the defence counsel, Sherriff Tambadou, on the grounds that the 1st accused, Bolong Jobarteh, went upcountry to attend the funeral of his uncle.

The case was then adjourned to 10 October 2012, for the continuation.
