Dec 8, 2016, 10:36 AM | Article By: Dawda Faye

The case involving Tina Faal, who was charged with stealing and receiving goods by false pretence, could not proceed yesterday at the Banjul Magistrates’ Court.

While reporters, the accused and the defence counsel, Combeh Gaye, were waiting in the courtroom, the clerk entered the courtroom and told them that the presiding magistrate was sick.

He subsequently adjourned the case until 22 January 2017.

The prosecution has so far called three witnesses who testified.

Ebou Badjie, lawyer Omar Njie and Alieu Ceesay had testified on behalf of the prosecution.

Alieu Ceesay is yet to finish his testimony.

Tina Faal has denied the allegations against her.
