Nov 15, 2011, 12:47 PM | Article By: Malamin Conteh

The trial on charges of treason and sedition involving Dr Amadou Scattred Janneh and three others continued yesterday at the Special Criminal Court in Banjul.

Continuing his testimony, Ousman Tom, Criminal Intelligence Unit Officer (CIU), adduced that he had submitted the transcribed audio recording to the investigating panel.

At that juncture, the Director of Public Prosecutions applied to tender the transcript as an exhibit, which was admitted by the court without any objection from the defence counsel.

Tom added that he obtained the email address of Dr. Janneh, and used the email address, user name and password to log onto the account of the CCG and, as a result, were able to access both outgoing and incoming messages.

He added that the computer which they used had been used on daily basis for access and storage of the information.

 DPP M. Abdoulihi applied to tender the print out of documents from the computer as an exhibit, but the defence counsel objected.

The case continues today, both for ruling and continuation of hearing.

Meanwhile, Dr Janneh had again complained about the condition of his prison cell, and informed the court that its poor conditions still persist.

The court at that juncture made an order for the prosecution to enquire about the condition of Dr Janneh’s prison cell.
