Four Zimba performers namely Muhammed Faal, Alieu Faal, Dodou Jawla, Senegalese nationals and Ebrima Sanyang, a Gambian were on Monday 18thAugust 2008 arraigned on a murder charge.

The four accused persons are alleged to have jointly murdered one Ebrima Morro Ndure, a charge they all denied.

Meanwhile, the prosecution applied for adjournment of the case, adducing that the case file had been sent to the Attorney General's Chambers for legal advice and that he was yet to receive it.

At that juncture, Lawyer Lamin Jobateh, counsel for the 4thaccused person, Ebrima Sanyang, told the court that he would like to have the case file, postmortem report, cautionary and voluntary statements of the witnesses quickly in order to expedite the trial.

He asserted that he would only accept the original copies and not photocopies.

Similarly Lawyer Edu Gomez, lawyer for the rest of the accused persons, buttressed the same points as his colleague, noting that the offence is categorised the highest criminal offence.

The case was then adjourned until 25thAugust 2008 for continuation.
