The High Court in Banjul, presided over by Justice Emmanuel Amadi, is today expected to deliver a ruling on the no-case-submission made by the defence and reply to the prosecution, in the treason trial involving former CDS Lang Tombong Tamba and seven others.
This follows the adoption of written briefs by both the defence and the prosecution, to the court last Friday.
Adopting his brief, defence counsel SM Tambedou told the court that he applied to adopt the written brief for the no-case-submission on behalf of the 1st and 4th accused persons, filed on 7th May 2010.
Defence counsel Pap Cheyassin Secka also told the court that he was applying to adopt the written brief for the no-case-submission on behalf of the 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 6th and 7th accused persons, filed and served on 7th May 2010. He said he also applied, in addition, to adopt the reply on points of law, filed on 14th May 2010.
Also, adopting her written brief on the no-case-submission, defence counsel Hawa Sisay-Sabally told the court that she was applying to adopt her written brief on behalf of the 8th accused person, filed on 6th May 2010, and the reply on points of law, dated 13th May 2010.
The Director of Public Prosecutions, Richard N. Chenge, told the court that "we applied to adopt our reply on the no-case-submission of the defence as a whole, which was filed on 11th May 2010."
The case was adjourned to today 17th May 2010 for ruling.
