Ex-Superintendent Manlafi Sanyang and former Lt. Bakary Camara were yesterday returned to the State Central Prison in Banjul as their case could not proceed as billed.

Sanyang, former Government Vehicle Controller and Camara, an ex-senior presidential guard, are facing charges of stealing a state-owned vehicle; allegations they refute.

Meanwhile, their alleged ally in crime, Dominico Fideli, has been charged for receiving the said stolen government vehicle.

Their cases were supposed to continue yesterday at the Banjul Magistrates' Court but it could not, for according to prosecutor Touray, his witnesses were said to be busy on an official assignment and, as such, could not make it to the court.

The case, before magistrate Kayeodi Olajubatu, resumes on 24 April 2008.
