The alleged theft case involving Beatrice Allen, Ousman Wadda and Muhammed Janneh, GNOC officials, failed to proceed on 18 May 2011 before Magistrate Tabally of the Kanifing Magistrates’ Court.

When the case was announced, Inspector Darboe, the new prosecuting officer, rose and told the court that he inherited the case from Inspector Mballow, and would like to apply for an adjournment to enable him familiarize himself with the case.

Lawyer Ida Drammeh, the defence counsel, did not raise any objection to the application made by the prosecutor.

Magistrate Tabally subsequently adjourned the case to 23 May 2011, for continuation and told the prosecutor that he should bring his witness to testify.
