The trial involving Buba I. Sanneh, National Assembly Member for Kombo Central, accused of criminal trespass and assault causing actual bodily harm, Tuesday continued at the Brikama Magistrates’ Court before principal magistrate Hilary Abeke.

Continuing his testimony under cross-examination, the first prosecution witness (PW1), Musa Gomez, told the court that the day of the incident on 13 December 2015 around 10-11 am in the morning was the very day he went to the Brikama Health Centre.

He said on his arrival at the hospital, he told them that he was injured, adding that when he was going to the health centre, he took along the shirt that he was wearing which was stained with blood and was holding another shirt in his hand because he did not want that to be stained with blood.

According to the witness, the accused person went to him and gave him a notice and told him that the notice was from the police that he should vacate from the house.

He said he went and asked the accused person’s father whether he was the one who noticed him to vacate from the house, but the accused person’s father told him that he was not aware of any notice.

He said he further asked the accused person’s father whether he could leave the house and the accused’s father said he could stay, because he, the complainant, was brought to that house by his other son, Omar Sanneh.

Hearing continues.
