The police prosecutor in the ongoing making of false document trial involving the IGP against Sulaman Faye on Wednesday cross examined the accused after giving his defence testimony before Magistrate Pa Modou Njie of the Bundung Magistrate Court.

While responding to questions from the prosecutor, Sulayman Faye told the court that he denied apologizing to Africmed clinic because even though it was part of his cautionary statement he was forced by the officers that arrested him to put it on his statement, adding that he was subjected to force while writing the statement and even some of his handwriting were changed.

He denied the fact that PW2 (Famara Jatta of Africmed clinic) was present during the writing of his statement and that he is not working with Africmed Clinic anymore because of the antenatal card he wrote for one Sally Kujabi.

He added that Africmed Clinic Knew that one of their senior staffs was involved in this issue and that is why his appointment was quickly terminated, adding that the said senior staff involved is one Basiru Gaye and that he worked with Africmed Clinic for only one year.

He insisted that he was telling the court what actually happened after the prosecutor Sergeant 2717 Jallow contended to the accused person that PW2 Famara Jatta revealed to the court during his testimony that he was present at the station when the accused was writing his cautionary statement and that not a single change was made on his statement hence the only gaps filled by the officers were gaps that they were supposed to fill.

The prosecutor further contended to him that he only wanted to tarnish the image of Africmed clinic that is why he was quickly dismissed and that the accused was just a junior receptionist at the clinic and that the accused is an untruthful person, he insisted that he was telling the truth.

The accused is charged with making documents without lawful authority for one Sally Kujabi at Africmed Clinic Services in the West Coast Region.

The case was adjourned to the 24th of November 2016 for continuation.
