The criminal trial involving Jerreh Jarju, officer commanding, National Drug Enforcement Agency (NDEA) in West Coast Region, and Samba Camara, Station Officer, Sibanor Police Station, was recently adjourned at the Brikama Magistrates’ Court before Magistrate Edward Singhateh.

The two are being tried on four counts of official corruption, public officer receiving property to show favour, abuse of office, and conspiracy to commit misdemeanour. Both have denied the charges.

When the case was announced, police prosecutor Jammeh told the court that the prosecutor handling the case was engaged in an official duty and could not come to court.

He said he was therefore applying for an adjournment to any date convenient to the court.

The application was granted and the case was subsequently adjourned till 8 August 2011.
