Justice O. Ottaba of the Special Criminal Court Division of the Banjul High Court yesterday adjourned the bail application of 14 supporters of the United Democratic Party (UDP), for ruling, after both parties adopted their briefs of argument.

Adopting the applicants’ briefs, senior counsel Hawa Sisay-Sabally urged the court to grant the application as prayed.

While also adopting the respondent’s brief, state counsel B. Jaiteh urged the court to refuse the application.

Justice Ottaba said the applicants’ brief and the respondent’s brief were adopted, and he subsequently adjourned the case until 25 October 2016, for ruling.
