The accused persons were arraigned on charges of being idle, disorderly, rogue and vagabond, charges they had denied.

According to the particulars of offence on count one, the two accused persons on 13 December 2010, between 1700 and1800 hours at the border checkpoint in Dinbaya Village, in the West Coast Region, forcefully demanded D300, being payment levied on the transportation of timber from Casamance, a conduct which is likely to cause the breach of peace.

The case was adjourned till 9 May 2012, for hearing.
