The trial of Adama Mballow of Kubuneh who allegedly raped an 18-year-old girl has being deferred until 15 September 2008 for continuation.

The case which was scheduled to be heard last Monday at the Brikama Magistrates' Court could not proceed as the complainant who was supposed to be the prosecution witness was absent in court.

However, Magistrate Pa Harry Jammeh warned the prosecution that if on the next adjourned date the witness failed to show up in court, the court would be left with no option but to strike out the case.
