Marie Sanneh, the 4th accused person in the case involving Ibrahim Bun Sanneh, former Executive Director of the National Drug Enforcement Agency (NDEA) and others, continued her defence testimony under cross-examination at the Special Criminal Court in Banjul.

The other accused persons are Karamo Bojang, former deputy director of the NDEA, Ousman Sanneh, the agency’s former operations commander and Seedy Bojang, former accountant of the agency.

Responding to questions put to her by one of the defence counsel, Marie Sanneh told the court that following her arrest and detention at the NIA headquarters in Banjul, as a result of how she was being handled, she said things against the 1st accused person.

She added that PW6 Kalipha Jatta had never accompanied her to the office of the 1st accused person at the NDEA for payment; instead it was the son of PW6, one Dodou Jatta (PW8), adding that Dodou did not go into the office of the 1st accused at the NDEA.

Meanwhile, the presiding judge had ordered for the prison authority to give access to the 5th accused person, Seedy Bojang, to have access to his former lawyer L.K Mboge, for two hours.

The case continues on 5 March 2012.
