Wednesday, September 16, 2009
One Corporal Ansumana Jarju, a crime scene officer, yesterday, testified in the Kerewan double homicide case before Justice Moses Richards of the special criminal court in Banjul.
The accused, Amadou Jarra - a Malian, is alleged to have murdered two women, Nyimasata Ceesay and Kintin Fatty, at Kerewan on 2nd March 2009. The crime scene officer, who is also a fingerprint expert, told the court that on 4th March 2009, whilst he was on duty at the Major Crime Unit at the Banjul Police Headquarters, he received a telephone call from the mortuary that his assistance was needed.
Cpl Jarju said he left for the mortuary, where he saw the bodies of the deceased. He added that he took four photographs of Nyimasata Ceesay from four different angles and photographed Kintin Fatty two times, and later processed the photographs. The prosecution, led by DDPP Mikailu Abdulahi, however, tendered the said photographs and negatives which were admitted and marked as exhibits.
