Justice Emmanuel Nkea of the Special Criminal Court yesterday ordered the prison authorities to make Edrissa Jarju, one of the accused persons in the NDEA murder case, to see a dentist at the hospital in Banjul before 26 November 2012.

This came after the 1st accused person, Edrissa Jarju, complained to the court that he was suffering from a toothache.

The judge made the order for Jarju to see a dentist at the RVTH, and that a copy of the order be served to the prison authorities.

The case was then adjourned till 3 December 2012, on the grounds that the prosecutor, AD Bowala, had travelled and the defence teams were also absent from court.

The particulars of offence read that the accused persons, Edrissa Jarju and Edrissa Jaiteh, on 10 December 2011 at Manjai Kunda, with malice afterthought caused the death of one Alpha Omar Jobe, by subjecting him to brutal torture while in their custody.
