The trial of journalist Mam Sait Ceesay, the former press officer at State House, did not proceed at the Banjul Magistrate's Court on Tuesday, 25 March, before Magistrate Kayode Olagubutu.
The case was supposed to be called on the 24 March, but it coincided with a public holiday. The accused person, who expected that the case was going to continue yesterday, was in court and eagerly waiting for the prosecutor and his counsel to arrive, but who were nowhere to be found. The witness, who was supposed to be cross examined by the defence counsel, was not in court either.
The case was adjourned to Monday, 31 March.
Mam Sait Ceesay, the former press officer at State house, is standing trial for false publication. He pleaded not guilty to the charges preferred against him.
