One Demba Bah was Thursday, 10 November, arraigned before Justice O. Ottaba of the High Court in Banjul, charged with the offence of rape.

The accused, it was alleged, sometime in March 2016 at Lamin village in the West Coast Region of The Gambia, had unlawful carnal knowledge of a fifteen-year old girl (name withheld) without her consent, and thereby committed an offence.

The accused pleaded not guilty to the charge, and was remanded in prison custody.

The matter was adjourned until 16 November 2016, for the prosecution to open their case.
