The trial involving Tina Faal could not proceed yesterday at the Banjul Magistrates’ Court.

The clerk of the court told Lawyer Antouman Gaye, who was representing Tina Faal, that the case could not proceed because the presiding Magistrate Omar Cham was on leave.

Prosecutor Jaiteh held brief for Inspector Sarja Sanyang, the prosecutor in the case.

The case was then adjourned until 13 October 2016.

Tina Faal was earlier arraigned at the Banjul Magistrates’ Court before Magistrate Omar Cham, charged with conspiracy, obtaining goods by false pretence and theft.

She, however, denied any wrongdoing.
