The false information case involving Mariama Touray, Ebrima Touray and Abdou Fatty recently continued at the Bundung Magistrates' Court, presided over by Magistrate Foster.

Testifying before the court, the 1st accused person, Mariama Touray, told the court that on 21 July 2008, at Ebo Town, while at home, she was told that her younger brother had a problem with one Aunty Gulo Jallow.

According to her, she was told that her younger brother was doing some set-settal and decided to relax at Aunty Gulo Jallow's compound. She went on to say that, when Aunty Gulo Jallow came out of the compound and asked her brother what he was doing there, the brother responded that he was just relaxing. At this point, she said Aunty Jallow told her brother that he came to steal, a claim which she said her brother denied.

She further revealed that after the push and pull her brother was taken home, adding that after a while Aunty Jallow came to their compound with some police officers from Tallinding Police Station asking for her brother. She said later her brother Saikou and Njie were arrested and taken to Tallinding Police Station.

The case was adjourned to 1st July 2009.
