The fourth prosecution witness, Yaya Sulay Cham, yesterday testified in the ongoing false pretence trial involving one Habibou Cham, at the Bundung Magistrates’ Court, before Principal Magistrate Ibrahin Kijera.

In his testimony, Yaya Sulay Cham told the court he was a hotel worker and he recognised the accused.

He recalled 24 June 2013, when a police officer came from Brusubi Police Station with an official compound document, and the officer showed him the said document and asked him whether the stamp bearing on the document was his stamp, but after looking at the document, he said the stamp does not belong to him.

PW4 further told the court that Momodou Cham was his father, who was the alkalo of the village, adding that he prepared the compound documents and stamped them on behalf of his father, and he also signed documents.

He said if he saw a document that he prepared he would be able to recognise it.

The defence counsel, Ousainou Darboe, did not raise any objection to the prosecution’s application for the photocopy official compound document to be shown to the witness.

When the document was shown to the witness, he said he did not recognise it.

The case continues.
