Sources at the Judiciary have intimated to this paper that Dawda Jallow, the principal magistrate at the Banjul Magistrates’ Court, has resigned from his post with effect from last week.

The source further revealed that Mr Jallow has secured a new appointment at the Ministry of Finance and Economic Affairs in Banjul.

Though our sources did not disclose which position Mr Jallow would be handling at the said Ministry of Finance, it has been confirmed that he had resigned from the judiciary.

Attempts to contact the Judicial Secretary proved futile, as he could not be reached on phone at the time of going to press.

Sources close to this paper said “Mr Jallow was dedicated to the service and his work,” and that his departure would create a gap in the judicial sector.

Mr Jallow joined the judiciary in late 2010 after successfully completing his studies at the University of The Gambia with a degree in law and went through the Bar.

He was then appointed magistrate and rose through the ranks as senior magistrate before he was offered a Chevening Scholarship through the UK Embassy in The Gambia to pursue his Master’s degree in Law in the United Kingdom.
