The criminal trespass case involving one Alieu Jallow has reached its climax at the Brikama Magistrates' Court before Principal Magistrate Kemo Ceesay.

In his defence, the accused person, Alieu Jallow, told the court that, on 24th December 2010, he had an appointment to meet two white men, Visaine Gibba and Essa Jones from England, at the Banjul International Airport.

He explained that, at the airport, he went to the main gate were he found security officers, greeted them and went past.

Mr. Jallow further adduced that he went to the Spanish airline and asked the pilot whether his friends from England did arrive, because he was supposed to meet them, but the pilot told him that he was not the right person to ask.

He said the security officers later asked about his mission, and he told them he had an appointment with his friends from England to meet them at the airport, adding that the security officers later handed him over to the police station.

The case was at that juncture adjourned to 24th January 2011.
