Gumbo Touray’s false information trial adjourned
Thursday, September 08, 2011
Principal Magistrate Sheriff Tabally at the Banjul Magistrates Court on Wednesday adjourned the criminal case involving the state against Gumbo Touray, the former director of International Affairs at the University of The Gambia.
When the case came up, the defence counsel for the accused person, Lawyer Pap Cheyassin Ousman Secka applied for an adjournment on the grounds that he wanted to make an application on the issue of jurisdiction.
He urged the court to grant his request as he was going to make a proper application on the issue of jurisdiction on the next date.
Police prosecutor, Superintendent Joof told the court that the application of the defence, if granted would delay the proceedings of the case. At that juncture, the case was adjourned to the 20th of September 2011.
