In Dodou Janneh's case More witnesses to testify
Thursday, July 24, 2008
Senior Magistrate Kumbah Sillah-Camara of the Bundung Magistrates' Court granted an appeal made by the accused's counsel, Mr Lamin Camara, in the ongoing Doudou Janneh murder case, on Monday, to allow him to call one more witness to testify and submit a document that he called relevant and "very important" to the case in the court.
The defense counsel for the accused who was formerly set to address the court over the case sometime back said for the interest of justice, he would like to call a reporter from one of the daily newspapers in The Gambia who reported on the incident when it occurred last year to submit the original copy of the newspaper in the court during the next session of the case.
Inspector Saine, the prosecution officer who represented the IGP on this case, raised an objection over the counsel's application but the presiding magistrate overruled his objection. The case was then adjourned to 29 July 2008 for continuation.
