The trial involving Alhagie Jobe, deputy editor-in-chief of the Daily Observer, and one Mbye Bittaye is expected to continue today before Justice Emmanuel Amadi of the Special Criminal Court (SCC) in Banjul.

On Wednesday, one Ebrima Jallow of Kanifing Estate, a medical lab technician at the Edward Francis Small Teaching Hospital (EFSTH), appeared following a subpoena issued to the said hospital.

Jallow appeared and told the court the actual person who should have appeared was in a management meeting at the hospital, and he was told to go to court to give required information.

He said Professor Mustapha Ebrihim Ali Khail, the head of lab and chairman of the Medical Advisory Committee, was to go to court, but he could not because of the meeting he was attending, and for the document, they did not know which Alhagie Jobe the subpoena was referring to.

Hearing continues on 26 May 2014.
