Magistrate Bojang of the Kanifing Magistrates’ Court yesterday convicted and sentenced one Yatna Cole to a fine of D10,000 in default to serve two years in prison.

Yatna Cole, who was convicted for obtaining money by false pretence, was also ordered to pay a compensation of D120,000.

The charge sheet read that in August 2014, at Sanchaba in the Kanifing Municipality, the convict fraudulently obtained from one Ebrima Camara D120,000 with the pretext that he was going to produce an American visa for him and his sister, knowing this to be false.
