Justice Lamin Jobarteh of the High Court in Banjul yesterday convicted and sentenced one Lamin Jah to life imprisonment after he was found guilty of rape, robbery, assault and stealing.

The convicted person was reported to have committed the offence at Kotu on 2 September 2009.

Meanwhile, drama unfolded when the convict's relatives protested in court against the court's verdict.

Mammey Faal, Fatou Faal, Awa Jah and Kumba Gisseh were subsequently fined D25,000 each in default to serve three years imprisonment with hard labour for contempt of court.
