Gambia: Six Million Economic Crime Case Continues

The alleged D6million economic crime case brought against a former cashier of the Gambia Ports Authority (GPA), Jahou Jammeh, continued yesterday at the Special Criminal Court in Banjul before Justice Emmanuel Nkea.

It continued with the cross-examination of the fourth prosecution witness (PW4), Patience Mama Loum, the rating manager at the GPA.

Under cross examination, PW4 told the court that she did not sign the receipt drawn by one Yande Jung, and went further to reveal the receipt numbers drawn by the said Yande Jung.

She added that exhibit F2 was under her custody, and was entered by her, stating that all the entries were drawn from the delivery note, and not from the receipt book.

When it was put to her by the defence counsel that all the entries in exhibit F2 were derived from the receipt book, the witness denied that.

She went further to explain that receipt number 390829 was in the name of one Saikou Batchilly, and the amount was D1,500, and it was drawn by Yande Jung.

The witness further stated that on 27 January 2011, the receipt number 390828, was entered by herself, and the customer was the said Saikou Batchilly and the amount was D1,500.

She added that based on the delivery note she had provided, some are not in line with the receipt book.
