The case involving Dr Gumbo Touray, former Director of International Affairs at the University of The Gambia, yesterday resumed at the Banjul Magistrates’ Court.

Dr Gumbo Touray, according to the charge sheet, was alleged to have written a petition to the Office of the President, stating that the Vice Chancellor of the University of The Gambia, Professor Muhammed Kah is bent on employing his relatives at the university, which information he knew to be false and thereby committed an offence.

When the case was called, defence counsel Pap Cheyassin Secka told the court that the defence had finished cross-examining the fifth prosecution witness.

At that juncture, the prosecuting officer, Superintendent Joof, told the court that the prosecution was applying for a short adjournment to bring more witnesses.

The case was then adjourned to 28 December 2011.
