Gambia: Ex-Gam-Food Employee Case Adjourned

The alleged theft case involving one Muhammed Mucktarr, a former employee of Gam-food, was recently adjourned at the Special Criminal Court in Banjul before Justice Emmanuel Nkea.

It was adjourned on the grounds that the presiding judge had a meeting.

Although the case was not called in court, both parties were present, including the accused person and the witness.

The case was then adjourned till 28 January 2013, for the first prosecution witness, Mr Abass Akarr, to continue giving his evidence-in-chief.

PW1, who had started giving evidence in court, had also furnished the court with documents, which were tendered and admitted as exhibits, following the application by the director of Public Prosecutions.
