Judicial Secretary John Belford yesterday dismissed rumours of the sacking of Magistrate Dawda Jallow of the Banjul Magistrates’ Court.

This development followed widespread rumours that Magistrate Jallow was sacked on 13 November 2014, from his position as magistrate.

Speaking to The Point in his office yesterday, JS Belford said: “As far as I am concerned, as the Judicial Secretary, Dawda Jallow is working as a magistrate. I am not aware of his sacking.”

He added: “Maybe your source and mine are different, but I am not aware of his sacking, and this is what I can say.”
