The High Court is to hear a motion filed by defence counsel, Lamin Jobarteh, on behalf of his client Musa Suso.
Lawyer Jobarteh filed a motion before Justice Joseph Wowo requesting for the prosecution to supply the defence with documents they were going to rely on in the criminal case against his client Musa Suso now before the Banjul Magistrates' Court.
According to counsel Jobarteh the Attorney General's Chambers was to take over the case, but now decided to leave it with the police.
In reply the Deputy Director of Public Prosecution, Mr. Abdullah, told the court that the Attorney General's Chambers was no longer taking over the case of Musa Suso before the Banjul Magistrates' Court.
According to Deputy DPP Abdullah, after a careful perusal of the case file, the AG Chambers discovered that the police prosecutor had called many witnesses. He said taking over the case would only cause delay to the prosecution of the case. He therefore applied for two days adjournment to file a reply to the motion filed by defence counsel Jobarteh.
The case was adjourned to today Friday 29th May.
