Mr. Malamin Ceesay, Officer Commanding Major Crime Unit of The Gambia Police Force, on Wednesday 25th March 2009 testified at the Brikama High Court before Justice Ngui Mboob-Janneh in a civil suit between one Hoja Ndow, Julie Lynn, a British national and one Malick Jeng, 2nd defendant.
In his testimony before the court, Officer Ceesay explained that sometime in the year 2004, he was posted at Kotu Police Station as a sub-inspector in charge of the Criminal Investigation Division (CID). He said during that time, he happened to meet one Hoja Ndow and Julie Lynn, the 1st defendant. "In 2004, I received a complaint from Hoja Ndow that she bought a compound from one Malick Jeng and had paid some amount but cannot acquire the property," Mr. Ceesay told the court.
According to officer Ceesay, he invited Malick and informed him about the complaint lodged against him. He said when they came, he saw either a fax or an email to Malick that came from the 1st defendant authorizing him to sell said compound.
Further testifying, Officer Ceesay told the court that Malick also has the title deed for the said property.
At that point, the witness was cross examined and the case continues.
