Alhaji Kalipha Barrow, a resident of Jangbanjelly village, Tuesday testified in the trial of lawyer L.K Mboge at the Banjul Magistrates’ Court before acting-Principal Magistrate Taiwo Alagba.

Mboge was charged with making false documents without authority, false swearing and uttering false documents, charges he has denied.

Barrow told the court that he lives at Jangbanjelly village, and knew the accused person, adding that he also knew the Attorney General, Edward Gomez.

He further adduced that their case was finished for almost twenty years, but they could not get back their property, adding that they went to the Attorney General, who recommended the accused to them.

According to him, the Attorney General told the accused that there was no need to go to court again, because the judgment had already been delivered in his favour.

He further asserted that the Attorney General knows everything in this case, that was why he told the accused to try and relocate the occupant.

The witness denied thumb printing exhibit A, and said he did not know who thumb printed it.

The case at that juncture was adjourned till 1st June 2011, for continuation.
