One Pa Modou KB Faal was Tuesday paraded before Magistrate Elizabeth Don of the Banjul Magistrates’ Court on a charge of obtaining money by false pretence, contrary to Section 288 of the Criminal Code Cap 10 Volume 3 of the laws of The Gambia.

With intent to defraud, Faal is said to have obtained the amount of D75, 000 from one Yankuba Conteh on the pretext of providing him a United States visa in the month of September 2015, at Leman Street in Banjul. He pleaded guilty to the charge.

The court granted him bail in the sum of D25, 000 with two Gambian sureties. The magistrate also ordered the accused to surrender all his travel documents to the court.

The case is adjourned to today.
