Ex-Superintendent Manlafi Sanyang, former State House Logistics Officer, is expected to begin testimony in his defence today before Magistrate Kayode of the Banjul Magistrates' Court. The case in question, which was scheduled for the beginning of defence yesterday, could not proceed due to a scheduled meeting Gambia Bar Association was supposed to hold.

Ex-Superintendent Sanyang was alleged to have sold without authorisation a motor vehicle with reg. No. BJL 4591A, a government property, while he was employed as Government Vehicles Controller. He was also accused of stealing the sum of D75,000, being the proceeds from the sale of the said vehicle. He denied the charges.
