The Brikama Magistrates' Court presided over by Magistrate John Njie recently sentenced one Babucarr Sallah by binding him to keep the peace for a period of 18 months.

He was also warned that he would be sent to jail if he breaks the laws of the country within the 18 months period.

Mr Sallah had admitted assaulting one Fatou by hitting her with a pestle on her face thereby causing her actual bodily harm.

In a separate development the trial of Musa Jabang and Musa Camara could not proceed at the Brikama Magistrates' Court as the police prosecutor was absent in court.

It could be recalled that the accused persons some time in the month of March this year allegedly assisted one Bakary Fatty to illegally obtain a passport. They were also further charged with lending a certificate to Bakary Fatty for the purpose of impersonation.
