Man Arraigned for Allegedly Causing Death




Police prosecutors at the Brikama Magistrates’ Court last Thursday levied a charge of rash and negligent act causing death on one Pa Modou Khan before Magistrate Isatou Janneh.

Pa Modou is alleged to have been driving a vehicle with registration number: BJL 9669 A in a rash and negligent manner and caused the death of Merro Fatty, on or about 30th October 2016 at Brikama Madina.

He was granted bail in the sum of D75, 000 with two Gambian sureties who must deposit their national identification cards to the court. The court also ordered that the sureties must swear to an affidavit of means and ordered for the accused person to be always present during sittings.

Sergeant 2294 Jammeh, the prosecuting officer, applied for an adjournment of the matter, saying that would enable him to take the file to the Attorney General’s chamber for legal advice. His application was granted and the case is adjourned to 14th November 2016.
