Marie Sanneh, the 4th accused person in the case involving Ibrahim Bun Sanneh, former Executive Director of the National Drug Enforcement Agency and others, was Friday cross-examined at the Special Criminal Court.

Under cross-examination, Marie Sanneh, told the court that she is related to Ibrahim Bun Sanneh, because she was told that two of their grandparents are from the same father.

She adduced that at the time she was depositing the money to the accountant, Seedy Bojang, Bun Sanneh was not present, adding that her first deposited amount was D100,000 and the last one was D40,000.

She said she informed Bun Sanneh of her financial problems well before the payment of the said money, adding that this piece of evidence was never captured in his evidence-in-chief.

Marie said she had said nothing that was designed to implicate Bun Sanneh, further stating that she could not remember telling Bun Sanneh to lend her money, as a result of her financial problems.

The case continues.
