If the recent statement by the state counsel, Maley Wood, is anything to go by, there are fresh charges awaiting the 94 accused persons in ongoing case on the Babylon saga.

State Counsel Wood last Tuesday hinted at this possibility before Magistrate Edrisa Mbai of the Brikama Magistrates' Court on the resumption of the case. "The state is preparing new charges against the accused persons and therefore needed ample time to prepare or complete the said charges," said state counsel Wood, requesting that the state be given three weeks to finalise the fresh charge sheet.

The accused persons, who were absent, had their case adjourned to August 26th 2008.
