Mr Babucarr Keita, an employee of the Central Bank of The Gambia, on 13th August 2008 gave his testimony in the on going trial of Charles Lowsen, Amadou Watera and Ebrima Danso.

The trio were before the Bundung Magistrates' Court presided over by Magistrate Kumba Sillah-Camara charged with being in possession of fake dalasis note.

In his testimony, Mr Keita told the court that between December 2007 and January 2008 he received a letter from the police to examine some dalasis note. He added that after examining the notes, he discovered that they were counterfeit notes.

He said he then wrote a report to that effect and sent the original to the police while the copy was kept in their file.

Hearing continues.
