The trial of Jerreh Jarju, officer commanding at the National Drugs Enforcement Agency, West Coast Region, and Samba Camara, station officer, Sibanor Police Station, could not proceed at the Brikama Magistrates’ Court recently.

When the trial resumed, the prosecuting officer, Inspector Fadera, told the court that his witness was not in court, as he had gone to attend his late brother’s forty-day charity.

He said that based on the aforementioned reason, he was applying for an adjournment.

The application was granted without any objection from the defence counsel, Kabba Sanyang.

Subsequently, the case was adjourned till 30 December 2010.

The two men are being tried on charges of official corruption, public officers receiving property to show favour, abuse of office, conspiracy to commit misdemeanour and destroying evidence.

Both have vehemently denied the charges.
