The case involving Ebrima Jawara Monday continued with another prosecution witness, before Magistrate Omar Cham at the Banjul Magistrates’ Court.

Sarjo Marena testified that he lives at Salaji and works at the Central Processing Co-coordinating Unit (CPCU).

He said he knew the accused at different places, including his work place.

Mr Marena adduced that on 24 November 2015, he was in his office and the accused came in with the DPS, Assan Jallow.

The accused told him that he was back to work, because he was not dismissed or sacked.

He told the accused he was welcomed back, adding that a gentleman later came into the office and told the accused that he was done.

He asked the accused what happened, and the accused replied that the gentleman came to change the office lock for him.

The accused gave the gentleman D200, adding that the lock was the project coordinator’s office lock.

The accused came with the DPS to the office and, a day later, he got a letter from the ministry which indicated that the accused was back to work with him.

Mr Marena further told the court that he was not aware that the accused was dismissed.

The case was adjourned until 23 June 2016.
