As a result, Magistrate Jobarteh adjourned the case till 3 April 2014, after the defendant’s counsel told the court that he was going to file his briefs.
Earlier, Lawyer Tambedou, on the last adjourned date, told the court he was just coming into the case and would like to pursue the case file to advise himself whether he would proceed with the case.

The court was expecting his second witness to testify only to hear Lawyer Tambedou announced his representation for the defendant.
