A school principal in one of the schools in Western Region was arraigned on charges of homosexuality at the Brikama Magistrates' Court yesterday.

Alimameh Dukureh was arraigned for allegedly having anal intercourse with some of his students at the school campus.

Dukureh, who was arrested by the police on the 29thJuly 2008 for allegedly engaging in such indecent practice on the school campus, denied the charges.

It will be recalled that two students from the same school have already pleaded guilty to charges of homosexuality when they were first arraigned at the Brikama Magistrates' Court. The duo told the court that it was the said school principal who inspired them to carry out such indecent practices on the school campus.

Meanwhile Mr. Dukureh has been granted a court bail in the sum of D25, 000, following a bail application made by the defence counsel, Borry Touray.

The case was adjourned to the 10thSeptember 2008 while the case of the two students comes on 11thSeptember 2008 before Magistrate John Njie.
