The D6-million economic crime case involving former cashier of the Gambia Ports Authority, Jahou Jammeh, could not proceed at the Special Criminal Court in Banjul before Justice Emmanuel Nkea.

It was adjourned on the grounds that the trial judge was reported to be indisposed.

The case was supposed to continue with the cross-examination of the third prosecution witness (PW3), Patience Mama Loum, GPA rating manager.

The case had so far seen the evidence of three prosecution witnesses and the tendering of some documents.

The case was then adjourned till 7 March 2013. 

It would be recalled that the accused, Jahou Jammeh, was alleged to have caused the loss of D6 million to the economy of The Gambia while under the employment of the Gambia Ports Authority as a cashier, a charge she had since denied.
