Court Grants D5,000 Bail to Assailant




Magistrate Faal of the Brikama Magistrates’ Court Wednesday granted bail to one Musa Sanneh in the sum of D5000 in an assault charge.

The magistrate also ordered Sanneh to provide two Gambians as sureties who must deposit their national identity cards and swear to an affidavit of means.

Sanneh is alleged to have assault one Nfamara Sanneh by stabbing him on his left hand side with a knife on or about 13th August, 2016 at Brikama Sanneh Kunda. He pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The police prosecuting officer then applied for an adjournment of the case to enable them to call their witnesses which was granted by the presiding magistrate and adjourned the case to 20th September 2016 for the first prosecution witness to testify.
