Jul 10, 2009, 8:26 AM | Article By: Modou Sanyang

The D3.8m case involving Manjang Sanyang and Oumie Ceesay was yesterday adjourned before Justice Joseph Wowo of the Banjul High Court for definite hearing.

The case was adjourned to a later date for definite hearing since the 2nd accused has secured a legal counsel to represent her in the case.

Lawyer L.K. Mboge who represented the 2nd accused person told the court that this was his first appearance in the case and that he was not served with the indictment.

The court later informed the defence counsel L.K. Mboge that his client was personally being served with the information.

The two suspects: Manjang Sanyang, Oumie Ceesay and others still at large are being alleged of causing the loss of D3.8m, while being employed at Sanyang Village Visaca Bank.

The suspects before the court denied the charges.

From count 1 to 9, the accused persons were jointly charged with economic crimes, while on count 10 to 15, of theft and fraudulent action, which relates to only the 2nd accused, Oumie Ceesay.

On count 16, the accused persons were alleged to have caused the loss of D1m, being loan procured by the government of The Gambia from IFAD for Sanyang Village Visaca Bank.
